Annual Antique Fair Supports New Zealand’s Deaf Children
The Papakura Quota club’s 13th annual Antique Fair raised $13,500 to support deaf and hearing-impaired children in New Zealand. Antique dealers from Wellington to Orewa gathered August 9-11, 2002, at Manukau Greyhound Stadium in Manukau City with a wide variety of heirlooms and bric-a-brac for sale.
Past club president Pam Ross came up with the idea of an antique fair in 1990, after attending the Quota International convention and hearing a presentation about the benefits of focusing efforts on one main fundraiser each year. “Lots of small fundraisers tend to burn everyone out,” she notes.
The Papakura club tested Pam’s newfound knowledge and created a winning formula for fund-raising success. The fair has allowed the club to donate more than $110,000 in the past 12 years.
