By REBECCA GARDINER ATHEATRE show raised laughs as well as funds for an organi- sation that provides pallia- tive care to the Counties Manukau community. Sue Mist, of Eastern Beach, hosted a charity session of How- ick Little Theatre’s last production for the year, Ladies For Hire, on November 29. The event attracted a full house and raised more than $2200 for Totara Hospice South Auckland. Sue has a soft spot for the Manurewa-based palliative care facility, which cared for her par- ents Jock and Doris at the end of their lives. “Everyone left the theatre with smiles on their faces,” she told the Times. “A raffe, with 12 draws of donated prizes, netted $360, which combined with ticket sales raised a great total of $2280 towards the hospice.” Before the show, guests sam- pled nibbles and tasted wines from Whitford’s Turanga Creek Organic Vineyard. “A play date at Howick Little Theatre is a very painless and prof- itable way of making money for a worthwhile charity such as hos- pice,” says Sue. “If there had been more seats in the theatre, I could have sold another 20 tickets. “The general consensus from all who attended was that it was such a good night they would support a repeat performance with a differ- ent play in 2013.” The event was a Hospice Angel Project, a new initiative which peo- ple can do their bit for hospice by setting up their own fundraiser. Karen Galvan, fundraising devel- opment co-ordinator for Totara Hospice, says the atmosphere was “buzzing” at the theatre show. “We were absolutely elated,” says Ms Galvan, of Sue’s efforts. “It’s this level of support that really inspires us at hospice to keep going. It just amazes me the lengths people go to support a cause.” She says Totara Hospice has to raise $3 million a year to provide services to the community, so every little bit helps. “If 20 people raised $2000 each, we’d have $40,000. It all adds up and it’s all about awareness. Hos- pice reaches everyone.” For more information on Hos- pice Angel Project, see www.hos- piceangel.co.nz.
