RainbowYOUTH’s first ever charity auction went off with a bang last Thursday night – with $25,000 raised to support the I’m Local Project – RainbowYOUTH’s rural outreach initiative.

Supported by ASB Bank and the MediaWorks Foundation, the night was themed ‘It’s A Bit Posh’ and featured an amazing comedic and entertainment lineup. Taking the stage as MC was the amazing Ali Mau (RadioLive), Justine Smith (Comedy Guild Award for Best Comedian and Best M.C, Billy T Comedy Award winner), Cori Gonzalez-Macuer (What We Do In The Shadows, 7 Days, and Billy T Comedy Award winner) and Eli Matthewson (Funny Girls, Jono & Ben, 7 Days, and Billy T Comedy Award Nominee), Fan Brigade and local DJ Arii Jade. Topping off this awesome line up was Caluzzi’s Kita Mean and Sir Dame Judy Ginger.
