Battle of the Book Clubs = SOLD OUT

Thursday 19th September, 7pm, Havelock North Function Centre


It's back...with a very important difference. CanTeen no longer has a hub in Hawke's Bay - its co-ordinator Kerrie refused to leave our kids and their families unsupported in their cancer journey so she has set up The Acorn Project Hawkes Bay to provide support services to young people aged 12 to 24 years living with cancer in Hawke's Bay. We are fully behind Kerrie and her team and all proceeds from the 2019 Battle will go to them. So:

*it's a booky quiz night
*the questions are rich and varied
*you will be able to answer many of them!
*picture rounds and an acted out round
*teams of 6 for $60 or 10 for $100
*bar and nibbles available
*the most fun quiz night you will ever go to

Get your team booked in by phoning 06 8777783 or email Lou on
