Guests turned out in their finest to enjoy the glitzy evening with guest speaker Doctor Lance O’Sullivan, who shared a touching story of his early childhood struggles which ultimately led him to his current career path. His focus is now on creating equal access to healthcare for all - especially to the most vulnerable Maori and Pacific Islands communities.
Special guest MC Carol Hirshfeld and local counterpart Janette Browne kept the crowds informed and entertained as they enjoyed the night’s offerings of a four-course dinner service, live music and of course a chance to give back through the auction.
The Cook Islands Red Cross Society would like to thank Jaewynn McKay and her team at Coastal Kitchen for delivering a wonderful night as well as to Dr Lance O’Sullivan and Carol Hirshfeld for adding “star power” to the Red Cross charity ball.
The team at Cook Islands Red Cross would also like to say meitaki maata to all our charity ball sponsors who helped make the night happen and to all the guests who bought tickets to support our non-profit humanitarian-focused Society.
