Upper Hutt Leader : July 20th 2011
14 UPPER HUTT LEADER, JULY 20, 2011 NEWS Vintners unch 2011 Te Omanga Hospice held its fourth annual Vintners Lunch in the Great Hall of Massey University on Sunday 10 July. The winds may have been cold but inside the auction action was hot, hot, hot! Over $115,000 (gross) was raised for the hospice, an amount that will translate directly into care for Hutt Valley patients and their families who are living with terminal illness. We are sincerely grateful to all involved. So many wonderfully generous individuals and businesses came together to make the day a roaring success by donating prizes, auction items, food, wine or their time and talents. While page space here may be tight, please know that you all have a space in our hearts for your outstanding contribution. Above all, we wish to thank all guests who attended on the day. It is your willingness to support this event and enter into the spirit of the day that ensures that hospice care can be sustained now and into the future. Thank you all so very much!

COMMERCE COMMENT Hellen Swales, director, Experience Upper Hutt Creativity core to life Creativity is fundamental to being human and is a critical resource to individual, com- munity and economic life. Creative communities are vibrant, humanising places, nurturing personal growth, sparking cultural and techno- logical breakthroughs, pro- ducing jobs and wealth, and accepting a variety of life- styles and culture. Ideas are the growth en- gines of tomorrow, so the nurturing of the communities where ideas can flourish is the key to success. Ideas take root where creativity is cultivated and creativity thrives where com- munities are committed to ideas. Creativity resides in every- one everywhere so building a community of ideas means empowering all people with the ability to express and use the genius of their own creativity and bring it to bear as responsible citizens. These are things as a com- munity we need to embrace and encourage as we need to dare to be different, if we, as a community are going to prog- ress and thrive. We will be celebrating these attributes in the Upper Hutt Business Excellence Awards on Wednesday, August 10, at Silverstream Retreat. We will be celebrating, acknowledging and encourag- ing creativity in our com- munity and honouring those who have been committed to their ideas and have ex- pressed them in an award- winning business.
