Renowned radio personality Roger Hau’ofa was taken aback during a fundraising dinner for the proposed Gordons Marimari Lutheran Church in Port Moresby at the Grand Palace Restaurant last Friday.
Mr Hau’ofa, master of ceremonies on the night, was pleasantly surprised to receive a wooden bowl from Siassi Island in Morobe province.
The dinner was well attended by about 400 people, who paid K200 each, with pledges totaling about K43, 700 made.
The fundraising committee is made up of an all-woman crew, who since 2006, have raised about K300, 000 of a targeted K1 million.
Work on the proposed Marimari church building, designed by Rumbam Engineers, is expected to start in 2011.
Those who made pledges during the dinner included Rumbam Engineering (K10,000);  Kelly Naru (K8,000); Mondo Clothing (K6,000); Savo & Grace (K3,500); Dr Joseph Pagelio and family (K3,000); Sed Limited and Dr Korimbo (K2,000); Paul Mawa Lawyers (K2,000); Mr Kit Moya (K2,000); Gabriel Samol and family (K2,000); Rev Somi Setu and family  (K1,500);  Pacific Software (K1,000); Wendy Mawa (K500); and Thomas Laka (K200).
