is pleased to be getting behind Marlborough’s stars and the wider community at the Stars in Your Eyes contest in Blenheim this month.
Hosted by the Creative Kids Trust
and Fulton Foundation Marlborough
, the event will raise awareness of the two charities, as well as ten other Marlborough youth charities.
WK’s sponsorship enabled organisers to bring national host and entertainer Tina Cross
to Marlborough to host the show.
Director Vaughan Harris
says WK was only too happy to get behind such a fun event for a great cause.
“Stars in Your Eyes is looking like a fantastic night out for Marlborough and it’s wonderful to be able to contribute toward raising the profile of, and funds for a range of local organisations.”
Nine Marlborough contestants have made it through the audition process to compete on the night, each representing a local charity of their choice.
In keeping with the format of the original show, each performer will be transformed into their chosen entertainer and will be competing for $1000 for their charity.
Second place will secure $500 for their charity, while third place will also nab $250 for theirs.
As well as hearing from the contestants, guests will be entertained by Tina Cross and local performers and will have the chance to participate in a silent auction.
Taking place at the ASB Theatre
on August 17, tickets are available here
