Hautapu Rugby Club Blue Ribbon Day Charity Match and Auction
The Cambridge-based rugby club commissioned a special rugby strip, by Paladin Sports, for its Senior A team to play in against opponents Fraser Tech at Memorial Park in Cambridge. People paid a gold coin entry fee as a donation and the Hautapu rugby jerseys were later auctioned at the clubrooms. The Blue Ribbon event was organised by club member Phil Herewini who was pleased with the result of the charity game and auction, raising more than $25,000 for the Foundation.
