The event was held at Fashion Island last week and the 90 who attended were not only treated to a fashion show, but also visited shops at Fashion Island for special treats. Other shops stayed open with special discounts on the night -- before the event went upstairs for the fashion show. The refuge's chief executive Heather Henare spoke on the night and said communities and local busi- nesses walking beside the beating heart of the refuges throughout New Zealand was a critical part of the organisation being able to help women. I think I can speak on behalf of our 40-plus refuges to say that our path towards creating safe houses, 24/7 crisis call response and edu- cational programmes for women and children could not have happened without local community and busi- ness support,'' she said. One did not have to go far to dis- cover the strong support that the Nelson Women's Refuge had, she said. She acknowledged that philanth- ropists, and supporters, had been vital to the organisation's success when people thought it was just feminists wittering on about stuff that was not necessary, or false''. The organisation had to help society understand that the nasty reality that there was a terrible leg- acy of violence towards women and children happening in Aotearoa. You, businesses and communities have been a partner with us, some- times a silent partner, but nevertheless an important partner in helping us build a society free from viol- ence,: she said. I would like to thank you for that respect, support and encourage- ment over the years. Please keep it up.'' She acknowledged the significant sponsorship relationship the refuge had in Nelson with The Car Com- pany and Sandy Warren from Haven Realty. She said that even small partner- ships were significant for providing inspiration for its hard-working volunteers and also the women they dealt with. She thanked smaller supporters in Nelson like the Super Muffin Heroes, Ann Todd Lambie, the staff of Super Liquor, the Entertainment Books and even the work of the local Sorop- tomist Club. Nelson Women's Ref- uge manager Trudie Brand said that using fashion to help support women in their time of need was a great idea. She thanked the team at Fashion Island man- agement team and busi- nesses for their support. All money raised from the night would stay in Nelson. During the past fiscal year the Nelson Women's and Children's Ref- uge supported 3774 individuals through one of the services it pro- vided.
