A Community Intiative

The Star Insurance Classic and Custom Bike Show is for the community and about the community. First and foremost the event is giving to the community.

All profits from the Show will go towards the funding of education for staff of The National Burn Unit and and Assisted Education Scholarships.

The show is run by the The Rotary Club of Papakura. This club is one of New Zealand’s most established Clubs with a membership of some 50 Rotarian’s. We are no strangers to holding substantial fund raising events and pride ourselves in the professional manner in which we approach and carry these out. Each year the Rotary Club of Papakura contributes a considerable amount of time and money to both the Greater South Auckland Community and as well as internationally.

Everyone who works for the Show gives there time to the show and the community for free. Apart from all the volunteers at the event, the brand development, online strategy and implementation as well as some aspects of the offline event strategy have been created collaboratively by drrobertdavis.com.  Colin Macdonald is overseeing all aspects of project management and strategy for the Show.

But best of all it is about you. The individuals and clubs who show their motorcycles at the Star Insurance Classic and Custom Bike Show.  You the public who come to the Show and are amazed by the beauty and power of these motorcycles.

The community is online!

A key part of the Show is the online community. This is how we extend the event and giving beyond 2 days in a year to the whole year. This is how we create a sustainable brand and event. Importantly, it is the primary way in which costs are reduced and profits are maximized for the event. We are reminded that all profits from the Show will go towards the funding of education for staff of The National Burn Unit and and Assisted Education Scholarships.

So, please like us, follow us and SHARE us. This is how we will increase the awareness of this important cause and contribution to the community.
