The sixth annual Camp Quality Dinner and Auction held on Wednesday, June 10, was hosted by John Andrew Ford and Mazda, and saw the more than 260 guests in attendance raising a total of $200,000 for Camp Quality New Zealand.
In attendance on the night — and vigorously bidding on the range of 25 major auction, and 45 silent auction, items — were a cross section of the motoring industry, including motoring personalities, vehicle distributors and suppliers, publishers, and enthusiasts. Alongside Parkside Media’s donation of New Zealand Classic Car and NZV8 books, and ten one-year subscriptions to a magazine of the winner’s choice, the range of major auction items included a Hampton Downs track experience, Highlands Motorsport Park track experience, which also included flights and accommodation, dinner at Botswana Butchery with Greg Murphy, a KTM motorcycle, a trip for two to Tahiti, including flights and accommodation, Bledisloe Cup tickets, and guitars signed by BB King and Eric Clapton.
Executive Director of AHG Motor Group Bronte Howson summed up the success of the night. “It is amazing what we can achieve when we aim to do some good each day, look what happens when we do it together.”
Camp Quality is a non-profit, volunteer organization providing a support programme for children living with cancer that is all about hope for the future.
