Property Brokers Hawke's Bay Charity Auction raises more than $70,000

Friday, 12 August 2022

The 17th annual Property Brokers Hawke's Bay Charity Auction raises more than $70,000 for Hawke's Bay charities and community fund.

We are thrilled to announce that the Property Brokers Hawke's Bay Charity Auction was a huge success, with the 400-strong crowd in attendance digging deep to support the Hawke's Bay Cancer Society, Hawke's Bay Rescue Helicopter, and the Property Brokers Hawke's Bay Community Fund!

The annual charity auction event is always well attended; this year was no different. Long known to be filled with sensational items and experiences up for grabs, the auction event didn't disappoint. The sell-out evening saw 400 people attend on Thursday, 11th August, in Hastings, where 44 items were auctioned and an additional 38 items in the silent auction.

"It's pretty special to see people rally together, step in, and raise much-needed funds for some of the most vulnerable in our community. 17 years ago we ran the first Property Brokers Hawke's Bay Charity Auction - it started on a whim and was held in the carpark of our Hastings office (which was an old house), it's now grown into an iconic event on the Hawke’s Bay calendar. We are incredibly proud of the efforts of our team and delighted with the continuous support from the Hawke's Bay community," said Property Brokers Managing Director Guy Mordaunt.

The evening launched into life with Mordaunt, Hawke's Bay Regional Manager Joe Snee, Napier Area Manager Grant Bailey, and Residential Sales Consultant Kevin Waggs engaging the entire room by kicking into the auction in true explosive style, leaving the crowd bidding up a storm and laughing the night away. 

"It was another really successful event; hundreds of people came together at the Toitoi Hawke's Bay Arts and Events Centre in Hastings to have a great time and bid up large," said Snee. "This amazing result wouldn't have been possible without the hard work of the incredible Property Brokers team, our generous sponsors and supporters, and the wonderful Hawke's Bay community who put their hands in their pockets to support these wonderful causes."

Snee said the quality of the auction items was fantastic, ranging from a one-hour sail on a Maori waka to incredible trips away, a 5-course degustation in-home experience, signed Magpie's jersey, David Trubridge lights, a golf weekend away in Kinloch and more.

Mordaunt and Snee were auctioneers, with Waggs, as the Master of Ceremonies during the evening.

Popular items on the night included fantastic accommodation for six people in Waimarama, the David Trubridge lights, a weekend escape for four to Porangahau Beach, a half-day fishing trip in Napier, plus more. Snee said the artwork and wine lots were also always popular.

The final total raised is yet to be announced, with money still coming in.
