Our Sponsors


We are thrilled that Cook Brothers Construction has come on board as the Principal Sponsor of “Too Many Cooks”. As well as having the perfect name to sponsor this event, the Cook Brothers Construction team are all-round good guys who have been long-time partners of the Cancer Society and supporters of Daffodil Day. Here’s what they have to say:

“Cook Brothers was founded in Otago in 2015, and has had a focus on giving back to the community ever since. We have been donating to the Cancer Society from as early as 2007. The great work of the Cancer Society was really brought to light when we sadly lost one of our team members to cancer around this time. However, by far our biggest contribution has come from our Daffodil gardens which started up in 2017, and has raised $75, 820k to date.

The team at Cook Brothers Construction have faced the battle of both fighting and losing loved ones to cancer. Members of our own team, families, industry peers and contacts have experienced living with cancer in one way or another. For our team particularly, we feel it isn’t enough to just build in a community – you need to build community. The Cancer Society touches so many lives, for us it is a very worthwhile cause.’
