WOW! what a night, 330 guests turned out in style to attend the inaugural 'Battle of the Suits'.  We all enjoyed fine food and wine and fabulous entertainment from our debaters and adjudicators and along with that we raised in excess of $50,000 for the Auckland City Mission HomeGround Project.
 
Events like this don't happen without the support of sponsors, our sincere thanks go to the following companies for their sponsorship of this event, Milford Asset Management, Cordis HotelMcDonalds, Ellen & Company, Encore and Benefitz.
 
Debate adjudicators Honourable Justice Simon Moore of the High Court, Court of Appeal Justice Lyn Stevens, Debaters, Rt Hon Sir John Key, Tom Scott, David Downs, Katherine Anderson, Kathryn Beck and Michael Timmins, provided much entertainment and hilarity, the photos from the event tell it all, http://picti.net/kJ1q6 
 
MC for the evening Miriama Kamo took the event to a whole other level, her professionalism along with her natural warmth ensured the event ran smoothly.
 
On Tuesday, we were joined by the leadership from Auckland City Mission for us to officially present our $55,000 donation toward their HomeGround Project.
 
We were joined by Chris Farrelly - Auckland City Mission CEO, Mandy Mee - HomeGround Campaign Manager, and The Hon Justice Lyn Stevens of the Court of Appeal & HomeGround Campaign Executive.
Matthew Orange stepped up the game for sergeant sessions to a whole new level on Tuesday.
Greg Moyle hosted a club camp with Rotaractors and Rylarians at his farm in Mangatarata - about 1 hour outside of Auckland - this weekend.
For some time we’ve had a standing invitation to join the Kiwi Harvest team on one of their pick up and delivery runs. The aim of “Riding Shotgun” (as they call it)  is to learn a bit more about Kiwi Harvest and experience the “feel good factor” as good nourishing food gets delivered to those who need it. Kerryn Downey, volunteered to “Ride Shotgun” on Friday and here are his comments and the photos:
Jolene Muir, one of our recent Rotary Youth Leadership Award (RYLA) graduates, joined us for breakfast on Tuesday to share what she's been up to, having recently completed an internship at the United Nations.
On Tuesday, Dr Hiran Thabrew of Auckland University joined us to talk about his research into Child and Adolescent Mental Health. We were very excited to host him as this is one of the social causes that our club supports.
On Tuesday 5th November the club met at Sheila McCabe's house to enjoy the Melbourne Cup. A great time was had by all catching the race and enjoying dinner and drinks.
On Friday 1 November, our club participated in the Ride to End Polio event.  Mark Jenkins, Gill Johnston and Byran Theunisen joined up with the Auckland and Waiheke clubs to participate at Britomart station. John Boscawen joined other Rotarians from across Auckland in riding the trains with Simon Bridges. And Pam Deal joined in to ride the trains with Miss New Zealand Lucy Brock.
On Wednesday night, the Youth/AGGS Committee hosted a Fashion Night fundraiser at Repertoire, Takapuna.  Suzanne O'Leary and Heather Robinson put together a great evening in partnership with the Repertoire team. In attendance were several club members plus a range of other friends, family and supporters.
One of our newest club members, Stewart Imrie, provided us with some great insights into his background as our guest speaker on Tuesday morning.  
We had the great pleasure of being joined by two friends from out South on Tuesday: Tania Thomas - President of the Rotary Club of Otahuhu, and Walter Hsueh - President of the Rotary Club of Auckland South.
