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
