Weekend Sun   

Rock on for charity

The Great Rock Hunt will raise funds for BOP Charity A Day of Magic.

Tauranga's Great Rock Hunt will take place this weekend in the Tauranga CBD.

Hundreds of prize rocks will be dispersed around the city as part of the fundraiser for A Day Of Magic Charity.

The charity strives to provide 'A Day of Magic' to every Bay of Plenty local who is suffering from a terminal illness and facing end of life. 

Live entertainment, activities including face painting and rock searching will kick off at 11am.

Hundreds of prize rocks have been donated by local businesses such as CBD Kitchen, RYE Bar & Grill, Barrio Brothers Tauranga and Robert Harris.

Five gold magic rocks will be hidden around town, with one of those offering a 3000-metre tandem skydive.

Registration is a gold coin donation, and registration opens at 10.30am at Red Square.
