Pink for a Day

To raise funds and awareness for the New Zealand Breast Cancer Foundation, the Negociants Auckland office went Pink for a Day. A delicious morning tea was put on for a gold coin donation. As well as the pink treats, we had a pop quiz, and sampled some of the great Rosé wines in our portfolio from around New Zealand and Europe. Eight Kiwi women are diagnosed with breast cancer every day, so we are very proud to support such a worthy cause.
