BOOSTED – only 4 days to go!

Things are heating up at Festival of Colour HQ as our crowd funding deadline fast approaches. With only 4 days left to raise the remaining 44% ($2,155.00) we’re in need of a big push from anyone able to support. We receive nothing if we don’t hit the $5,000 target.

Donations to date have varied from $5 to $500 with every dollar taking us one step closer to making ‘Like There’s No Tomorrow’ a reality for our local acting talent…..can you help?

Here’s what some of our donors had to say about the campaign:

“What a fantastic collaborative project! Can’t wait to see the show”

“All the best to the students for an enjoyable time and a slick show”

“Fantastic project – incredible opportunity for our kids”

Why give?
Like There’s No Tomorrow will see raw talent nurtured by successful role models who are at the cutting edge of the industry. The show stars Drama and Music students from Mt Aspiring College who get to work on a professional show and build their acting, production and music skills while being mentored by award-winning members of Wellington’s Playground Collective.

A great loss!
We’re deeply saddened by the news of Mo Schofield’s death on Monday afternoon. Mo was a well-known and much loved character who gave up huge amounts of her time and endless energy supporting local events such as the Festival of Colour and Warbirds over Wanaka.

Anyone who had the pleasure of meeting Mo always left her company with a little more lust for life and spring in their step. She’ll be sorely missed at the Festival and by the larger Wanaka community.

This photo was taken during a recent trip to Neil’s Beach on the West Coast where Mo was first in and last out of the ocean each day..surprise surprise!

Thanks for everything Mo!
