We take great pride in working with community organisations. Below are some of the recent projects and upcoming events we have been involved with (Watch this page for updates!):
ROTARY CHARITY DUCK RACE
On Saturday the 11th June 2017 The Phoenix duck mascot took part in the corporate duck races along the strand waterfront!
Unfortunately our $200 ducky came pretty close to the end, but it was a good family day out and all contributions went to several great charities.
Our Duck mascot is still standing strong in The Phoenix Bar keeping an eye on the place.
Keep an eye out for him the next time that you’re in The Phoenix!
PINK RIBBON BREAKFAST
FOR BREAST CANCER TAURANGA TRUST
Thank you to all involved in the highly successful May 2017 Pink Ribbon breakfast. The morning included quick fire raffles and auctions including lots of amazing prizes, all thanks to the support of our fellow Tauranga businesses.
The Phoenix raised over $10,000 all going towards this very worthwhile charity. A big thanks to those who attended, our generous sponsors and staff that made the breakfast a great success.
FOR HOMES OF HOPE
In November 2015, we hosted our first Ladies Long Lunch which included pampering, wine and nibbles. $5 from each ticket was donated to Homes of Hope Charity which provides foster care to abused and/or neglected New Zealand children or young persons.
THE PHOENIX MOVIE NIGHT
FOR KIDS CAN
In 2014, we hosted a series of movie nights in Masonic Park (Adjacent to The Phoenix). This was a free community event which everyone could come along and enjoy. The movies were a great success, so much so we are doing them again for Summer 15/16. This year, entry will be via Gold Coin Donation, with all funds raised going to Kids Can who support disadvantaged kiwi kids.
HAIRY MACLARY & FRIENDS
Everyone has fond memories of the Hairy MacLary stories as a child. When the opportunity came along to bring the characters to life, we couldn’t resist! Situated opposite The Phoenix, these sculptures a worth a visit next time you are in town.
Events we have sponsored include:
Tauriko School Gala
ANZ Daffodil Day Fundraiser
Cancer fundraiser with Immerse Beauty Therapy to support local battlers
Bethlehem School Gala
