In a commitment to supporting World Cancer Day 2024, Ticketmaster New Zealand has partnered with Canteen Aotearoa and raised $8,800 for the cause. 

Across March, Ticketmaster New Zealand set out to raise funds for Canteen Aotearoa as part of the global Ticketmaster World Cancer Day initiative. A donation upsell across all events, allowed fans to donate while purchasing tickets to their favourite events. The funds raised will go directly to Canteen Aotearoa. 

World Cancer Day is a global initiative held every February 4th to raise awareness of the global impact of cancer, improve education and work together to ensure as many preventable cancer deaths are saved, and access to treatment is equitable for all. 

Around 4,200 rangatahi are impacted by cancer every year in Aotearoa. Canteen Aotearoa is a safe space where rangatahi aged 13-24 impacted by their own diagnosis or cancer in their whānau can connect, share the tough stuff, and get a break from cancer.

“Through our global World Cancer Day initiative, we are proud to play a small part in supporting the important work that Canteen Aotearoa are doing for rangatahi impacted by cancer,” said Anjelica Devoe, Ticketmaster New Zealand Managing Director.

Nick Laing, Chief Executive of Canteen Aotearoa, said, “We want to extend a huge thank you to everyone who has participated in the initiative, raising both awareness and funds for the rangatahi we support. As Canteen receives no government funding and relies entirely on the generosity of the community, your support directly helps ensure that rangatahi don’t have to face cancer alone.”

We want to thank everyone who has joined in on our initiative to raise awareness and funds for the global issue of cancer.
