Steve Jandrell, Web Genius CEO says, “it never ceases to amaze me how this event comes together each year.  As a local business that reaches a national audience, we are proud to be able to facilitate the running of this event where 12 local Fundraising Partners become the recipients to do good in our community for youth in Kāpiti.  There is a lot of mahi behind the scenes from within the Web Genius team in addition to their usual client workload, so I thank them for their efforts, and we look forward to paying all Fundraising Partners later in April once the event has been held and online sponsorship is closed.”
