Colenso bid wins Robbie Williams tickets, CDs

Editor News Make a Comment

ColensoBBDO to be entertained this week by Robbie Williams in support of BOTAB charity The New Zealand Music Foundation.

Not content with simply winning the top gong for best band, Colenso BBDO have also taken out this year’s CAANZ Battle of the Ad Bands silent auction held in aid of The NZ Music Foundation and are set to enjoy Robbie Williams’ sellout Let Me Entertain You tour show at Vector Arena in Auckland tomorrow night (Tuesday).  The team will enjoy VIP red carpet pre-show treatment, drinks, food and platinum seats for the event.

The lucky concert attendees have also received CD copies of Williams’ Swing When You’re Winning, Take The Crown and Swings Both Ways albums together with the blu-ray DVD of the extraordinary Live In Tallinn concert, where he played to 70,000 on Independence Day in the Baltic nation of Estonia.

Colenso BBDO’s winning bid contributed to a fundraising result from this year’s goth-themed ad agency band extravaganza that has allowed The New Zealand Music Foundation to provide vital instruments to support music therapy to people with life-limiting conditions at a Wellington hospice.

The actual amount of Colenso’s winning bid – as part of the ‘silent auction’ procedure – has not been made public, although the organisers (sounding as if they’d hoped for more) told M+AD it was “over $1000”).

The cash was handed over to the foundation last week by Colenso suit Mitch Lovich.

“We’re thrilled that BOTAB, which is a tradition on our calendar now and such a great night for all, is also able to make a difference through music to the lives of Kiwis in need with The NZ Music Foundation.” said CAANZ ceo Paul Head. “Colenso BBDO have really got into the spirit of it and to get hold of these hot VIP tickets for the agency is a fantastic reward for their generosity.”

The New Zealand Music Foundation general manager Peter Dickens said: “We’d like to congratulate Colenso BBDO and also give our thanks to the great teams at Universal Music NZ and Vector Arena. Music Therapy as part of palliative care is incredibly effective and the generosity shown by Colenso BBDO will bring comfort, help and support to many families at a very difficult time.”
