Prominent Parnell businesses support Year of the Rooster
Two prominent Parnell businesses have come on board to support Year of the Rooster Exhibition and Auction in aid of Starship National Air Ambulance service.
Pauline Goldfinch, Parnell Branch Manager says “Barfoot & Thompson Parnell is thrilled to join the team that brings you the 2017 Rooster Exhibition for Chinese New Year. As a branch, we greatly value the diversity of our community. We are a multicultural office with staff that come from over 8 nationalities and speak over 10 languages. For us, supporting this local event is just one way that we can give back to our Parnell.
We are also passionate supporters of the Starship Foundation, a cause very close to our hearts. Barfoot & Thompson has been a sponsor of Starship Foundation since 2003 and raised over $2.5 million during that time. We look forward to seeing how much is raised through this year’s Rooster Exhibition”.
Mossgreen-Webb’s have agreed to host the Chinese New Year charity auction for the second year.
Located in the heart of Parnell, Mossgreen-Webb’s is New Zealand’s only Trans-Tasman auction house, providing a fully diversified, multi-departmental auction programme including important paintings and contemporary art, jewellery, fine wine and decorative arts.
From 14 – 16 February, Mossgreen-Webb’s will display 38 hand painted roosters, by a range of local artists and celebrities for viewing to the public.
CEO Paul Sumner, one of Australia’s leading and most charismatic auctioneers will conduct the sale of this collection on Thursday 16 February at Mossgreen-Webb’s Parnell premises.
Paul Sumner says, “Mossgreen-Webb’s is delighted to once again be part of this community event and to host the exhibition and auction to raise funds for The Starship Foundation.”
