Dîner en Blanc – Postponement Announcement

strong>Dîner en Blanc – Postponement Announcement

March 14, 2014.

With Cyclone Lusi forecast to hit Auckland on Saturday 15 March and Civil Defence warnings in place for the Auckland region, the organisers of Dîner en Blanc Auckland have made the difficult but carefully considered decision to postpone the event.

The safety of guests travelling to and from the event is as much of a concern as their safety while at the event and the organisers could not put the guests of Dîner en Blanc Auckland in unnecessary danger.

The event was scheduled to be held in Auckland, at a secret location, on Saturday 15 March.

The new date for the event is Saturday 29 March.

Guests will be communicated with via the official Dîner en Blanc Auckland channels, http://auckland.dinerenblanc.info;
https://www.facebook.com/DinerEnBlanc.Auck; and via email.

If guests can’t attend the event on the new date they will have until 10.00am Tuesday 18 March to inform the organisers.

Any guests who can’t attend on that date need to email Diner en Blanc Auckland at; auckland@dinerenblanc.info

Dîner en Blanc Auckland will then issue all refunds by 9.00pm Thursday 20 March.

Dîner en Blanc Auckland will issue full refunds for any food and beverage purchased and for event attendance fees.

Membership and administration fees charged by Dîner en Blanc International will also be refunded.

Once refunds have been issued, registration to attend Dîner en Blanc Auckland will be reopened to all those on the waiting list. The date and time for this will be announced as early as possible.

These places will be secured on a first come, first served basis.

We thank everyone involved in this event for their patience. We are working toward the best solution, with the best intentions for all involved.


ENDS
