Baby votes raise $2700
Izabella Lentino is the winner of the 8th Annual Hibiscus Coast Baby Photo Competition.
The 10-month-old from Wellsford toddled away with the win on November 10.
One-year-old Chase Anania of Whangaparaoa was the runner-up, and six-month-old Thomas Baker, also of Whangaparaoa, was third.
The annual photo competition organised by Manly Care Chemist raised $2749 for the Hibiscus Coast Parents Centre.
About 78 entries were received, making it "the closest competition yet", Manly Care Chemist owner and competition organiser Tania Adams says.
"It was great to see in these harder economic times the community getting behind this fundraiser," she says.
"We were also lucky to have tremendous support from sponsors once again, with a first prize worth over $600."
