Henderson Cars in Auckland has continued to boost its cultural connection with the Tongan community by providing a free meal and a sponsorship of a major Tongan dancing competition.
The car dealership at 24 Great South Road, Takanini has a free puaka tunu (roasted pig) and ‘ota ika (fish mixed with coconut milk and vegetables) for the public every Saturday during the month of August starting this Saturday.
Henderson Cars has offered a Nissan Veneta van for Kaniva Tonga news as part of a new collaboration to boost the company’s public relation.
Kaniva will help write advertorials and reports on Henderson Cars major community events.
The company’s spokeswoman Stella Heeney said Miss Tau’olunga Faka-Tonga 2018 was divided into four categories.

The dancing competition will feature young girls who will be vying to win the Miss Tau’olunga Faka-Tonga 2018.
It will also feature the Henderson Cars Kaniva Tonga Band during the event at the Henderson car yard.
The company will also live stream from 12-1pm each Saturday showcasing a group dance of each category of the Miss Tau’olunga Faka-Tonga 2018, starting with the Junior Category on Saturday September 4, 2018.
The competition was organised by Tongan choreographer Milika Pusiaki.
The company will move to a big yard at Cavendish Drive in Manukau soon.
The move is part of its ambition to make sure it is close enough to its major Pacific community base, especially the Tongan and the Samoan communities.
