Harcourts Dancing for Hospice raises $130,000!

Fundraising event a resounding success

August 31, 2021

Harcourts Dancing for Hospice raised $130,000 this year. Jonathon Hagger, CEO of Rotorua Community Hospice says “this result is fantastic, particularly after cancelling the event in 2020, and all the challenges faced in the past year”.

Rotorua Community Hospice gets about 50% of it’s funding from Lakes District Health Board, but still needs to raise $1 million annually to ensure it maintains a high level of support and service for the Rotorua community. The funds raised from Harcourts Dancing for Hospice will go towards the clinical team, who deliver expert palliative care to those with life-limiting illnesses and support for their whānau. It will ensure the clinical team have all the tools they need to improve their care in the community.

A true community event with sponsors who contribute to nearly every aspect, from beverage suppliers, media and marketing, audio visual, catering, videography, graphic design, the auction and so much more. We could not forget the 20 local dancers whose time training averages five hours a week over 14 weeks. Then there are the volunteers, who contribute over 1,000 volunteer hours to make this event happen.

Jessica Meade, fundraising and marketing manager for Rotorua Community Hospice says “there were many times during the set-up of the event that I was blown away by the amount of community members that were somehow involved. I think nearly everyone in Rotorua has something to do with this event. We simply could not produce such a successful fundraising event without the help and generosity of our community, we thank them and are truly grateful”.
