$15,000 Community Giveaway Winners Announced

$15,000 Community Giveaway Winners Announced
Too hard to choose 100 winners, so we approved all 150 applicants instead!

Ninja Valley stands for continuous improvement - amongst our guests, ourselves and our community. In our second month of operation we kicked off our Community Giveaway initiative.

It is with fierce pride that we announce the completion of our first ever Community Giveaway of more than $15,000 worth of digital gift cards to 150 non-profit organisations within the Waikato.

We asked interested organisations such as schools, clubs and charities to apply for $100  that they would put towards their own fundraising efforts as prizes or to reward their hard-working volunteers and members. The total campaign was capped at $10,000.

The plan was to review all applications and select 100 that would receive the $100 gift cards. However, we discovered that we had so many worthy causes that we simply couldn’t choose - so we approved them all. 

Congratulations to the 150+ successful applicants below. We salute you for the great work that you are doing in our community - providing care, opportunities, experiences, skills and fun to our tamariki. 

We have already seen how the gift cards are being used and we’re delighted to have helped in some small way. Thank you for what you do!
