2017 Charity Ball
The 12th Anniversary CANZA Ball was held on 9 December
We had a great time and raised over 62,000 CZK for Pink Crocodile School.
Exclusive Tour of the Czernin Palace
Thanks to the generosity of Martin Klepetko, Director of the Asia Pacific Department at the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and his team, we were delighted to be able to offer an exclusive chance to see the interior of the Czernin Palace, the home of the Ministry in Prague.
This is the largest of Prague's baroque palaces and has served as the offices of the Czechoslovak and later Czech foreign ministry since the 1930s. It was commissioned by the diplomat Humprecht Jan Černín z Chudenic, the Habsburg imperial ambassador to Venice and Rome, in the 1660s. The tour will include the opportunity to see Jan Masaryk's apartment as well as historic state rooms.
The building is not normally accessible to the public, and so this was a unique chance to see some recent and not so recent history.

Did you know that famous street artist Banky's Australian works have all been removed/destroyed?
At this event we recreated our own version of Banksy's most iconic image
- "Bansky's Girl".

Thanks to all those who came along to the ceremony and Barbecue. As well as having a great day out, you raised nearly 4,000 CZK for the New Zealand Returned Services Association Poppy Day appeal plus a good amount for CANZA from drink sales etc.
