North Harbour Club: News
Lunches, Awards, 20 Years… It's all go for the North Harbour Club
I’m excited to this month be writing my first Channel article as the new General Manager for the North Harbour Club – and what a busy start it’s been! I am truly honoured to be a part of such an incredible network of local ‘movers and shakers’ and the consistent generosity of each member, sponsor and ambassador simply amazes me.
Lexus of North Shore Charity Lunches
Our luncheon calendar finished with the Rugby Luncheon at QBE Stadium on Friday 8th August with All Blacks Manager Darren Shand keeping the packed room engaged with his discussions around management of the ABs in a Q&A with Sky TV’s Tony Johnson.
As always, our gratitude goes to Lexus of North Shore for their ongoing support and sponsorship of these events. Our lunches are all fundraising events for the Club and Charitable Trust, with proceeds towards the annual award grants given to our outstanding local talent.
2014 AIMES Awards
As I write, our judging panel are wrapping up deliberations on the 2014 winners for the AIMES and the Emerging Talent awards – with over 75 sensational entries they’ve had a difficult task narrowing them down, with each entry excellent in its own right. The categories awarded are in the areas of The Arts; Innovation, IT & Science; Music; Education; Sport and Service to the Community – the talent in each of these is so inspirational, and they’re all from right here on the Shore!
Both the AIMES and Emerging Talent Awards will be presented at the Annual Gala Dinner on Saturday 8 November – past and present winners will wow us with their extraordinary talents in an event not to be missed. Full event details are on the facing page.
20th Anniversary Publication
For those that have known the Club since day one, I bet you’re thinking “surely it hasn’t been 20 years!” But it has, and 2015 will be the Club’s 20th year. To celebrate, we’re producing a printed publication with all the history, photos and stories. We’d love to hear from you if you’ve got Club photos hidden away, a story to tell or if you’d be interested in being involved.
Our warmest thanks also go to Professor Ian Watson of Massey University for his time, expertise and leadership of this project.
If you’d like to be in touch, I’m always available for a coffee – don’t hesitate to give me a call.
