The year 2017 marks Finland’s 100th anniversary as an independent state. It is an important year for Finland, full of events created through joint efforts. Auckland Finnish Society is planning to organise a memorable World’s First Independence Day Dinner Gala for our members and all Finns and people with Finnish associations living in New Zealand.


As much as we pride on our independence and don’t like asking anything from anyone, we are a small society with very limited funds and could use all the financial help we can get this year due to this momentous occasion.


Trademe_infoPlease help our society with raffle prizes or even a small donation.

Whether it’s a small raffle prize, or an item we could auction off in a silent auction or on our TradeMe account, do let us know if you have something that would help us in some way. Or if more convenient, we are more than happy to receive a small cash donation that we can be put directly towards the costs of this year’s special events.

If you have other co-operation suggestions or any questions, don’t hesitate to get in touch with us at


Cash donations can be deposited directly to our bank account:
