The sensational New Zealand born, San Francisco based Opera Singer, Ms Isabella Moore joins as guest artist on the evening because she believes in the vision of sharing our gifts with the expectation of realising potential and creating new opportunities.

Eighty six years in business and currently power-driven by young and very inspirational fourth generation women, the Eveni Carruthers brand traces its origins to the coldness of Dumfries Scotland, arid, dusty Melbourne Australia and finally, balmy, peaceful Fijian and Samoan islands.
It has since developed the brands - Eveni Pacific - a modern take on traditional elei formal wear, Koko Pacific a premium resort and contemporary elei wear, Eveni Sport - Athleisure and urban street wear, EveniKIDS- clothing & accessories line for children and Garlands Pacific - a range of home decor and furnishings.
Eveni Carruthers has retail outlets and distributors in Apia, Faleolo International Airport, Sheraton Samoa Aggie Greys Beach Resort Faleolo, Salelologa Savai’i and KS Mart Tafuna in American Samoa which are supported by online stores. www.evenipacific.nz and www.evenipacific.com.
Proceeds from the unique performance will contribute to the Pacific Women’s Professional & Business Network Inc scholarship fund to support Pacific women in furthering their studies and other relevant opportunities.
