#2220 ... Sculptured Egg

Investigating the egg ... Courtenay Place. One hundred of these eggs have been placed around New Zealand as part of the Whittaker’s Big Egg Hunt – the first event of its kind Down Under which showcases giant eggs designed by top New Zealand artists all in support of Starship. New Zealand’s leading artists and designers have turned giant eggs into unique masterpieces. 100 eggs are hidden throughout Auckland, Wellington and Christchurch in historic, landmark and public spaces where you will be able to join the hunt and go into the draw to win the ultimate prize – a unique 340g 18ct Gold Whittaker’s Slab, which has been made by Partridge Jewellers. The Whittaker’s Big Egg Hunt aims to raise funds for the Starship Foundation, a charity which supports the national children’s hospital to provide world-leading care for almost 120,000 patient visits each year. As part of the partnership with Starship, Whittaker’s is donating at least $150,000 to Starship through specially marked products in participating stores by donating 10 cents from every iconic 50g Peanut Slab, 20 cents from every pack of its top selling Fairtrade Creamy Milk block and 20 cents from its Creamy Milk Easter Mini Slabs sold throughout the hunt. Starship will also raise funds by auctioning off all 100 giant eggs – with 80 to be auctioned on Trade Me and the other 20 to be sold at a gala event in April.
