Call goes out for helpers

Organisers of a fundraiser for sick Waiheke teenager Kavanna Jade are calling for a little more help.

The 14-year-old has been at Starship hospital for the past two weeks undergoing treatment and observation for reoccurring conditions which are a result of the different medicines she takes.

Kavanna Jade has had suppurative lung disease and chronic asthma since she was small.

Her mum, Carolyn Ogg, has been organising a fundraiser called Music Box at The Bay, Matiatia, which will run from 2pm till 9pm on March 29.

"We have some great acts lined up, with great food and drinks specials and a silent auction," Carolyn says.

"But we would like a bit more help on the day."

Volunteers will be setting up VIP tables, making platters, manning the entrance and looking after door sales.

Phone Carolyn Ogg on 021 264 5706 to help out or buy tickets.

See Kavanna Jade's Facebook page for more about the event and full ticket details.
