Back by popular demand ... another great Herne Bay Ponsonby Rackets Club fundraiser — HI ROLLA CASINO NIGHT!

Later in the year we’ll be hosting a terrific social event, to raise much needed funds for our club.  
But ... we won’t get there without your support, so we’re counting on you to CHIP IN!

Right now we’re looking for PRIZE and AUCTION items.
Can you donate, or shoulder-tap someone to donate, an item to help raise funds for our great club? 
We hope to be giving away plenty of prizes on the night, plus we’ll be running a silent and main auction event too, to make this a memorable and rewarding night.
Donations can be product, service or experience based — and no item will be too large or too small. 
From wine to dinner vouchers, bach hire to facials, cosmetics to apparel, coffee cards to babysitting services ... 

If you can help out with a donation, please let us know ASAP; email Jacqui on service@hernebayrackets.co.nz

Thanks for your support!
