Fight For Christchurch - 30th November 2012 - CBS Arena, Christchurch

Posted by Dean Norrie on November 30, 2012 at 6:50 PM

Hi There,  ,

 

 

The Star Photographers team were very lucky once again to get to photograph the "Fight For Christchurch" Charity Event 2012 at CBS Arena, Christchurch, 30th November 2012.

Hosted by 3 of New Zealand's best - Brendan Pongia, Haley Holt and Leigh Hart.

It was a night of celebrity and glamour with big names like Gold Medalist Olympian Sofi Pasco, All Black Andrew Ellis and Radio & T.V man Jason Gunn attending.

It was an amazing event with pyrotechnics, pre fight build ups, great fights, entertainment and music.

Fight For Christchurch is Justin Wallace's brain child to give back to Christchurch's needy Charities and from humble beginnings in April 2010 at Cowles Stadium $38,000 was raised, in 2011 $120,000 was raised and to this years whopping $135,000!! Well Done Justin.

The night was full of excitement an introduction of Loud Pyrotechnics, Tron Dancers with Mirror Ball Man being lowered from the ceilings lighting rig, the grande entrance of the celebrity hosts Brendan & Haley in Hot Rod's and Man of the People Leigh Hart running out of the changing rooms as a pumped up fighter with his entourage of hotties.

The fights were of the highest standard with 3 rounds of 2 minutes, the contenders had prepared well putting on the greatest spectaclel!

The Charity Auction raised $35,000 on the night, with a beautiful boxed mountaineering Ice pick signed by Sir Edmund Hillary going for a massive $11,000.

A Big Glove Competition was held with 2 people from the audience slugging it out for 2 rounds of 20 seconds using huge boxing gloves.

The best coustume went to a man dressed as a Mexican Fighting Hero.

The Grande Finale also amazing with more pyrotechnics, entertainment by emerging rock band "The Make Believe" and talented singer Laural Barrett.

The after party was held at The Christchurch Casino, It looked like it was going to be a banging good night.

It was a truly brilliant evening!!
