Yashili NZ Launch Fundraising Campaign for Heart Kids

Yashili New Zealand Dairy Company have partnered with Chinese master pianist Lang Lang as part of a fundraising campaign for Heart Kids to support children living with congenital heart conditions.

As the event sponsor of Lang Lang’s 2016 Auckland Piano Recital at the Civic Theatre on 12 June, Yashili New Zealand donated one hundred Ruby-seated concert tickets to Heart Kids as a fundraiser.

“I can’t think of more important work than helping to make a difference to the survival of children,” said William Zhao, Yashili NZ General Manager.

“I am confident that this is the start of a meaningful and beneficial relationship between Yashili NZ and the champions of children at Heart Kids.”

The charity tickets are priced at $250 and are available at GrabOne. All sales profits will go to Heart Kids.

Lang Lang, who is the United Nations Messenger of Peace and Goodwill Ambassador for the UN Children’s Fund (UNICEF), said he was pleased to see Yashili’s great efforts to ensure every child has the best start in life.

“I am happy my concert ticket sales help raise funds for Heart Kids, and I look forward to hearing continued good news coming from Yashili and HeartKids’ future partnerships,” said Lang Lang.

“We are grateful to Yashili for supporting our work with their generous donations to Heart Kids, which will help us to continue providing practical and emotional support to the 12 babies born with a heart defect every week in New Zealand. We look forward to working with the Yashili team more closely to further raise awareness and funds for our Born Fighters,” said Rob Lutter, CEO of Heart Kids.

Heart Kids New Zealand is the only organisation in New Zealand dedicated to providing lifelong support for all those affected by childhood heart conditions.
