The first ever Festival of Life Event was held at the ASB Stadium in Kohimarama, Auckland on Sunday 6th March 2016. With the support of Youthline, Lifeline Aotearoa, Kidsline Aotearoa, SafeKids Aotearoa, Shine and the Hopeworks Foundation, We were able to create a free family day out to celebrate the lives that we have but also to celebrate the life of those who we have lost through Suicide, Depression Drink/Drug Driving, Alcohol Abuse, Drug Abuse, Family Violence.. and the list goes on.
The Festival of Life is an Annual event where we want to create a safe place for families and the community where they can come and forget about day to day distractions, as well as providing an opperunity for stories to be shared to help prevent these things from happening but also to provide an opportunity for people to discuss their situation with community support groups and others who have had similar experiences, in a caring yet non-threatening environment.
In addition to creating a safe yet non-threatening environment for the community we open our event up to community support groups for free so they have the opportunity to promote their services as a Non-profit Organization but they are also there so the community has the option to talk to someone about any situations or problems going on in their lives at the moment. We also want to help support these Community Support Groups provide their services to the communities so any profits that we make on the day of our Festival of Life Events gets equally Divided back to the Non-Profit Organizations that have attended and supported the event on the day.
