ASB is pleased to sponsor the Auckland Diwali Festival for the second year running.

For 2016, ASB is taking its support one step further as ASB staff from across the city prepare for a Saturday night performance on the festival’s main stage (October 15).

ASB’s Carmelina D’Souza and Ruzbeh Palsetia have driven the ASB staff, family and friends’ performance, and recruited external choreographer Kesha Surti from Khottey Sikkey. More than 40 of them have been rehearsing up to three times a week for the past month.

ASB Head of Community, Sponsorship and Events Mark Graham said that the Bank is pleased to support the Auckland Diwali Festival for the second successive year.

“ASB is proud to be involved with the Auckland Diwali Festival. Bringing the bright lights, vibrant colours and exquisite cuisines of India to the diverse Auckland community, the festival is becoming a special date in the Auckland cultural calendar and an important celebration of the city’s diverse community,” he said.

Embracing diversity

ASB is proud to embrace diversity, acknowledging that its people and customers come from diverse backgrounds and bring a wide range of skills and experiences to their jobs. Diwali is a significant day for many ASB people and its customers.

ASB’s support of the Auckland Diwali Festival sits alongside existing sponsorships of the Auckland Lantern Festival, the ASB Auckland Marathon and the ASB Classic.

As a leading provider of integrated financial services in New Zealand, ASB has a genuine commitment to its community partnerships and fostering the arts across the country.
