We even got to hear Andy sing his “home kill” song three times … he may even go on to be a NZ country music star yet – homegrown from Helensville!

Local, Alison Mau was the MC for this event.  Ali had MC’d a previous event at Allely Estate that fundraised over $52,000 for the Muriwai Residents affected by Cyclone Gabrielle.  A true pro she was the perfect MC for this event, having an awesome sense of humour as well as she kept great time keeping so nothing got missed.

Testimonial from Aneia Warner 

Aneia Warner Salon – Winner of the Health & Beauty Category 2023 North West Country Business Awards who also won this Category in 2022.

Gorgeous venue, and we had the privilege of visiting for the business awards.

Would highly recommend this for special events, especially weddings. The Villa is lovely, and I especially liked the landscaped gardens, so well kept, peacefully located off the roadside, and private with pretty, cobbled areas to gather and mingle.

Lovely food and wine.

At the conclusion of the event many businesses stayed to networked and meet other business owners, congratulated and celebrated with those who had won.  We look forward to the 2024 Business Awards.

Thank you to Mark Sherer from Cherry Events in working with us for this event and our staff like Amy with our Co-Owner Catherine Cooke below for your hard work in providing exceptional customer service on the night (and beaming smiles with some of the recipients).  Lastly Catherine Cooke came to know on the night she was indirectly related to Andy Cummings and his family through her ex-husband – her kids are cousins of the Cummings – it really is a village!
