Since 2010, AA Insurance has been a proud sponsor of youth charity, New Zealand Blue Light. Blue Light works in partnership with the New Zealand Police to deliver an extensive range of youth programmes and activities. We support Blue Light because of their great community focus. They strive to make our young people stronger and our communities safer. As a way of recognising the incredible work they do for New Zealand communities, we arranged for the Blue Light team to have an afternoon of fun at the G9 Golf event at Eden Park.
The G9 Golf event sees Eden Park transformed into a nine-hole golf course for a week. Players tee off from nine different locations around Eden Park, including a bonus longest putt competition in the home team changing room. The event is all about having a unique, fun and memorable time, something we wanted the Blue Light team to experience.
New Zealand Blue Light CEO, Rod Bell, arranged for Blue Light staff, families, supporters and volunteers to come along to enjoy the day together. It was an afternoon full of fun, and with many keen golfers among the group, the competition was friendly but fierce!
As a partner of Eden Park, AA Insurance also supported the event by sponsoring the fourth hole on the course, which was appropriately named ‘The hole course covered’. With the G9 Golf event now wrapped up for another year, the Eden Park turf team are now preparing for a big season of sport this summer!
