Colour Me Purple

On the 19th of March 2015, HELP is holding their annual Colour Me Purple charity auction to raise money to help fund their crucial work within our community. Emceed by actor Aaron Ward, the evening’s entertainment will include performances by Kiwi icons as well as both a live and silent auction. Outstanding locally-made art is on offer, as well as amazing experiences, including a walk-on part with local heartthrob and sexual violence prevention educator Sam Bunkle on Shortland Street, a weekend away experiencing Waikato’s Waitomo caves and Hobbiton, and three nights at the Gold Coast in the Sheraton Mirage Resort with flights included. HELP aims to raise $50,000 to help them bridge the funding shortfall they face in delivering their services.

Tickets to Colour Me Purple are limited (but don’t worry, I’ll let you know how you can get yours in just a moment!), and guests are encouraged to wear their best purple attire – so I’ve put together a few of my favourite purple finds to help you look fabulous!
