Stephen from Dunedin dreams of seeing an NBA game live!

Dunedin, Otago

Stephen from Dunedin is a well known and liked character of Otago. He is a huge sports fan and spends most of his free time volunteering at The Edgar Centre, coaching kids.

Recently, just before his 48th birthday, he has moved into his own flat, independently. He spends his time listening to the radio, watching sports on TV and coaching at The Edgar Centre.

At his church, he recently revealed something on his bucket list that he could never achieve on his own. His dream is to go to LA and see an NBA game live! He would also like to go to Disneyland. He is unable to look after himself on such a big trip so I will take him at my own expense. (Jay-Jay)

Please help make Stephen's dream come true for his 50th birthday in 2024. He does a lot for the community and deserves to have the trip of a lifetime.

Thank you

Thank you Sleep Space  28 June 2024

Thank you so much to Sleep Space who generously donated a brand new Queen size bed for auction. It sold for $1600!

Trademe took over $100 for frees and commission though. Grrr.

So I will add $1500 here to Stephen's tally.

It looks like he is going to have the time of his life! I can't wait to share the holiday with you all when it happens.

(Dom and I will post on our Instagram and Facebook and no doubt Stephen will too!)
