Fundraiser for Zoe

Zoe Crawford has been selected to represent New Zealand at both the Junior Pan Pacific Games (swimming) in Hawaii and Surf Lifesaving U19 World Champs in Italy. These are awesome opportunities and to help get her to these amazing events, her family is organising a fundraising event on Friday 19 August at Mairangi Bowling Club.

Come along for a fantastic night of fun – for a really great cause. Guest speakers will be Adine Wilson (former Silver Fern Captain), Jeff Wilson (former All Black and Black Cap) and Andy McMillan (NZ Olympian, Black Fins Captain and World Champion). There will be auctions, raffles and spot prizes, quizzes, tasty treats and beverages available, music and a dance floor! There’s your Friday night sorted!

Tickets are available HERE but be in quick!

Zoe has also just been announced as the U17 Sportswoman of the Year at the Northern Region Surf Lifesaving Awards of Excellence (pictured above). Well done Zoe!

“Paige has given so much to hockey for someone so young – regularly volunteering at North Harbour Hockey, coaching multiple teams as well as playing, and helping mentor other young coaches and players.

She is highly regarded in her community as someone with the special ability to form relationships with anyone.”
