Run for fun and Rotary Fun run: The annual Wharf2Wharf is one of Rotary's major annual fundraisers. Nearly 1000 people will run or walk the Wharf- 2Wharf courses on Saturday, January 21, rain or shine. While they will be ben- efiting from the exercise and the stunning scenery of Waiheke, the com- munity will benefit from the proceeds. Waiheke Rotary uses the run and walk as a major fundraising oppor- tunity so it can fulfil its philanthropic efforts. In 2011, the club donated $7500 towards the cost of a new St John ambulance and provided $6000 for Christmas parcels for the less fortu- nate. It also supported local schools, purchasing dictionaries for primary school pupils and assist- ing with funding for high school exchange trips. The Dolphins netball teams and other non- profit organisations also benefit from donations in return for their support in delivering the event. Organising committee spokesperson Ann Tidey says while entry fees contribute significantly, it is funding from busi- nesses that add most to the fundraising effort. Major sponsors include Fullers, Downer, 2XU and BNZ, while smaller businesses like Oneroa BP, Island 2000, Pneuma Health, Oneroa Dental Surgery, Harrop and Hargrave, and United Travel Waiheke also contribute to cover event costs. More businesses con- tribute products for spot prizes, all of which show- case the generosity of the community, Ms Tidey says. And this year, as W2W celebrates its 20th anni- versary, every 20th per- son registered will receive a prize. Visit www.wharf2 wharf.co.nz to enter or pick up an entry form from Fullers at Matiatia Wharf or BNZ in Oneroa. Cruisy days on Auckland harbour Auckland based: P&O superliner Pacific Pearl is one of several cruise ships bringing tourists to downtown Auckland. Cruise liner spotting season is in full swing with several vessels docking in and departing from downtown Auck- land each week. Most dock at Princes Wharf by the ferry ter- minal, giving Waiheke commuters an oppor- tunity to view their size. Some liners dock at neighbouring Queens Wharf. On Monday, P&O cruise superliner the Pacific Pearl departed its Auckland harbour home for New Caledonia. The 63,500-tonne, 1800-passenger ship is the largest liner to have called Auckland its home. The Oceanic Dis- coverer arrived this morning and leaves at 5pm. Australian-based liner Dawn Princess arrives for the day on Friday, and the Sea Princess guests have a day in Auckland on Sunday. Next Wednesday the Pacific Pearl returns from Noumea in the morning, before heading off to New Caledonia later that day.
