Spectacle promised for gala dinner occasion

Spectacle promised for gala dinner occasion August 2008

When you arrive at a business event to recognize Manukau’s top businesses including the Westpac Manukau Business of the Year, and the Marley New Zealand Small Business of the Year, you don’t expect to be greeted by swirling red-hot Chinese lion dancers. Nor do you anticipate seeing circus performers swirling above your head while waiting for the main course. Or for a ‘slow jam’ college band to provide the dinner music while you dine.

But at a Gala Dinner held to celebrate the 2008 Westpac Manukau Business Excellence Awards this Friday 5 September, that is exactly what you will get. The evening, often described as the ‘Oscars’ of Manukau business, is designed to entertain as well as to inspire.

The Larry Morris Band will also have a starring role – fitting because in Larry’s career he has performed alongside big names like The Who, David Bowie, and Tom Jones, and the aerial tissue dancers from the New Zealand Circus promise to delight.

The event will be held on the evening of Friday 5 September, at the TelstraClear Pacific Events Centre in Manukau. Tickets are available by completing the attached form or contacting Enterprising Manukau on 09 262 2244

Only a limited number of seats left so BOOK your tickets NOW!
