Prime Minister and PNC Leader, Peter O’Neill, said PNC is a party for the people and all Members are rallying together to provide support for victims of the disaster.
“We have already seen generous support from the private sector, both in donations and contributions in-kind through the provision of goods and services,” the Prime Minister said.
“The PNC Red Ball for earthquake relief will be an opportunity for the People’s National Congress Party to bring together our supporters to raise funds for people during their time of need.
“The fundraising dinner will be held at the Sir John Guise Indoor Stadium on Saturday, the 14th of April.
“The evening will include entertainment and opportunities for businesses to make a contribution, as well as to provide further information to the business community on relief activities.
“PNC is the largest political party in the National Parliament and we have a duty to our people to bring together all the resources we can to support the efforts of the Government and our disaster relief workers.
“We all have to make a contribution in any way we can, and this is one of a number of activities being undertaken by our members as a party alongside individual efforts currently underway.”
The Prime Minister once again thanked partners in the business sector and the international community for their unwavering support in dealing with the earthquake disaster.
“Companies such as Oil Search and ExxonMobil, and our friends in Australia, New Zealand, China, Israel and many other countries have mobilised and are working alongside our Government agencies.
“This is truly the work of partnership and we thank all who are contributing to relief efforts.”
Tables for the fundraising dinner can be booked before the 9th of April through the PNC office on telephone: 325 3999
