Samoa Business Network (‘SBN’) will conclude its successful fundraising initiatives from the end of year networking events in 2014 with a formal handover of $2,000.00 ST each to the Samoa Cancer Society and Samoa Victim Support Group (SVSG). The handover will be hosted by SBN member, Pacific EZY Money Transfer in Apia on Thursday 26th of February.
The fundraising auction was supported by SBN member businesses at the December 2014 networking events and included the auctioning off of items kindly donated by Kara’s Fashion House, The Works Hair Salon, Shop Samoa, MENA, Ulu Aiono, SkyCity Auckland, and Samoapages.com.
The transfer of funds to the Samoa Cancer Society and the SVSG was facilitated by Pacific EZY Money Transfer and will be officially handed over by Pacific EZY Money Transfer’s Savalalo Office in Apia on Thursday 26th February at 12.30pm.
SBN’s president, Laura Keil-Hall, sees the money raised as a way for SBN to give back to the Samoan community as the fledgling Association looks to consolidate its growth in 2015 and put down firm roots in Samoa:
“Although we are very much business focused we know and understand the importance of also connecting and looking after our wider Samoan communities. It has always been our plan since the establishment of SBN almost 2 years ago that we give back to Samoa in any way we can and we hope to continue doing this every year”.
