The Champion Centre celebrated its 40th anniversary with a black-tie fundraising gala at the Christchurch Art Gallery Te Puna o Waiwhetu, in October 2018.
Over 250 guests came together to support the work of the Centre, as they continue to be a leader in the field of early intervention for children with disabilities and developmental delays.
The Champion Centre supports over 165 children and families, with over 100 of these children attending weekly therapy at the Centre’s premises on the Burwood Hospital Campus.
With a vision to ‘Remove Barriers and Unleash Potential’ for the children with disabilities, the Centre has the almighty task of fundraising nearly $1M per year. Thanks to the many wonderful guests who attended the Gala, over $110,000 was raised on the night to support the organisations fundraising efforts.
