The New Horizon show promises fun and great easy-listening music but has a serious purpose. Organiser Jim Morrogh is passionate about youth mental health and this is the third show he has put on to raise funds for local organisations that work in this area. This year, funds go to the Hibiscus Coast Youth Centre in Orewa and Windy Ridge.
Jim says that the show is about celebrating love, kindness and whanau and trusting and supporting one another. “In particular, it’s about assisting organisations that help young people who are in desperate need of comfort and support,” he says.
This year’s show includes the talents of Gray Bartlett, Dennis Marsh, Ronnie Antonio as well as The Violin Guy Nick Jones, and The New Horizon Band.
There are two shows, both at the Orewa Art & Events Centre, Orewa College, 76 Riverside Road, Orewa, on Saturday, April 13 at 2pm and 7pm. Tickets cost $25 and can be purchased from Eventfinda, phone 0800 289 849.
