Congratulations to the Graeme Dingle Foundation who celebrated 25 years of empowering our tamariki and rangatahi to have the bright futures they deserve.
More than 300,000 young people's lives have been touched by the work of the Foundation and guests heard first-hand testimony from Ayla Dellaway about the difference the organisation's programmes had made in her life.
The last speech belonged to Sir Graeme Dingle, who thanked the people who'd been there for the Foundation since the beginning and stated the importance of changing the statistics and making New Zealand the best place for children to grow up.
Finally guests were treated to a performance from 'Resonate', who impressed with their tight harmonies.
