IN LAS VEGAS
WE HAVE A WINNER
All you had to do was Jam… Video it, YouTube it and get all your family and friends to Support it! And that is exactly what you did in your droves. We had a swell of donations in the run up to competition close. The excitement was immense.
Thanks to all who took part in Money4Jam and donated to win these once-in-a-lifetime prizes. Now, if you’ll give me a drum roll please. We have a winner …
In first place with an incredible video and stunning fundraising total is:
Our b-boy breaker – Jaden. Let’s all “Do the Jaden”! He is truly an inspiration and like one of his sponsors said, “Justin Timberlake would sure be lucky to meet you”. Hey Jaden, if you don’t choose to go into the entertainment business in a few years, please come and use your fundraising talents for StarJam. A remarkable fundraising total of $5931, yes! that’s $5931.
You have a choice of one of three prizes, and we know you’re a mad Justin Timberlake fan so pretty sure which prize you are going to go for. Two tickets to Las Vegas (thanks Air New Zealand!) to meet Justin Timberlake at a VIP meet and greet before taking your seats at the Justin Timberlake and Friends Concert on Saturday 1st October 2011. PLUS! Go wild with $US3000 spending money donated by our friends at Kiwibank. Wow, what a prize!
Thank you our kind sponsors!

They were like a thoroughbred racehorse approaching the finish line and with a massive donation in the final hour grabbed second place – many congratulations! Now, what is it to be, a trip across the ditch to meet Stan Walker or meet our kiwi legend Neil Finn in Auckland? Enjoy the prize Stop! Jammer Time. and thanks so much for the fundraising efforts.
In third place are the coolest and craziest dancers Hamilton has ever seen, their dancing Jam was certainly dazzling and their fundraising efforts reached a fantastic $1583. Well doneHamilton East Dazzling Dancers! Now, all we want to know is which two of the thirteen of you gets to claim the prize? That will be an interesting discussion between you.
