Canteen hosts the X-Shot Battle Arena at Armageddon Expo

26 Jun 2024

Canteen made a significant impact at the Armageddon Expo in Tāmaki Makaurau by hosting the exhilarating X-Shot Battle Arena, drawing over 900 enthusiastic participants. This dynamic event not only provided entertainment, but also raised $4600 in vital funds to support rangatahi impacted by cancer.

Attendees immersed themselves in friendly competition within the X-Shot Battle Arena, showcasing their skills and camaraderie while contributing to Canteen's essential services. The success of the event was further bolstered by an additional $2000 raised through fan photo opportunities with the popular personalities of Viva La Dirt League.

The sponsorship between Canteen and Armageddon Expo exemplifies the power of community-driven initiatives in making a positive impact.

Being part of hosting events like the X-Shot Battle Arena not only raised crucial funds for Canteen's services but also raised awareness about the challenges faced by rangatahi dealing with cancer. Canteen continues to expand its outreach and support through such engaging community fundraising events.

We want to say a big thank you to Armageddon Expo team for inviting us to host, and to Zuru X-Shot for supplying us with the awesome X-Shot blasters!

Our partnership tiers are closely tied to our community fundraising programme, which both offer ample opportunities for organisations and corporations to get involved in supporting Canteen.
