Rita Angus held our Cinderella Charity Ball on Saturday 22 August. At least 150 residents and their loved ones celebrated the occasion and many made an extra effort to dress to the theme. Everyone looked fantastic on the night and all the action was captured at our photo booth by our very own Ryman photographers.
In preparation for our ball we were blessed to have Amanda, her team and Lizz who helped towards making our night a success.
We raised nearly $1,500 for this year's Ryman charity, New Zealand Red Cross. We were very thankful to have Red Cross representatives Mathew and Sandra attend. They shared some wartime history and displayed some original artefacts which generated a lot of discussion amongst our residents.
The evening was inspired by the swinging music of the Wellington City Jazz Band who moved everyone on to the floor to dance and sing-a-long.
Our chef Lazlo and his kitchen team whet our appetite with their fine selection of food on the night.
