An Evening With Pinetree And Friends

An Evening With Pinetree And Friends


With the Rugby World Cup just round the corner, there’s a “must do” event for all passionate Rugby fans. ‘An Evening with ‘Pinetree’ and Friends – The Final Countdown’ is a fundraising event to be held on Friday, 3rd October 2003 (the week before the World Cup) in the ballroom at the Hyatt Regency Auckland. The hot topic for the night will naturally be The World Cup and all things Rugby!

The evening promises to be truly memorable as it features some of Australasia’s finest Rugby guest speakers – All Black of the century, Colin Meads; Australia’s greatest halfback, Ken Catchpole; and Australia’s double World Cup winning centre Jason Little; together with Rugby’s funniest Master of Ceremonies Peter FitzSimons. Special guests also include Fred Allen, Dean Barker, Grant Dalton, John Graham, John Morrison, Waka Nathan, Mandy Smith, and Pat Walsh.

Proceeds from the event will aid Hohepa, Auckland and Hawkes Bay. Hohepa’s mission is to establish and maintain homes, schools, farms and workshops in New Zealand for the curative education and social therapy of intellectually disabled children, young persons and adults - based on the teachings of Rudolf Steiner.

Tickets to ‘An evening with Pinetree and friends – the final countdown’ are $175 per person or $1750 per table for ten.
