Last weekend's Wigs on the Waterfront raised more money than ever before, says Karen Ritchie of the Cartier Bereavement Charitable Trust. Volunteers with their plastic buckets collected $4,405.80 for the Trust, which will be used for funeral costs for those who die from HIV and AIDS-related illnesses. “Along with a thousand dollars from Wayne Clark at Family bar, and another grand from the people who booked the front tables at Soul Restaurant, the day made a huge difference for the Trust,” says Ritchie. A huge number of performers took to the flowery-decorated stage on the day, including Daphne Bush, Cindy from Samoa, Miss Ford, the girls (and Mr Gay Waikato) from Hamilton, the Caluzzi and Finale girls, Elvis, Mika and his dancers, Ramon, Buffy and Bimbo, Queenie Aotaeroa and contestants from Queen of the Whole Universe pageant - plus MC'ing by Christchurch's Miss Mole, Ribena and Buckwheat.     Ref: (m)
