Last Chance To Dine With Celebrities For Most ‘Full-Filing’ Tsunami Fundraiser
Ticket order: By phone: 0800 273 759 (0800 2REPLY) $200 per person Or Web: www.avenues.co.nz
Time is running out for ticket sales to the nation’s three Tsunami fundraising dinners (Christchurch: 27 January, Wellington: 28 January and Auckland: 5 February) which are shaping up to be the most enjoyable way to fundraise for the victims of the recent Asian disaster.
Twenty of the country’s finest chefs have joined forces to create an amazing six-course degustation menu that will be served alongside an array of top Kiwi entertainment with some of New Zealand’s finest wines to match each course.
The ticket price of $200 is an absolute bargain for the calibre of entertainment and quality of food and wine – the premium dining experience from such an a-list team of culinary experts at one sitting is quite possibly one that may never be repeated.
As well, the Tsunami Dinners offer the chance to dine alongside celebrities that have lent their names to the cause including John Campbell, Carol Hirshfeld, Frankie Stevens, Mike King, Suzanne Lynch, Tina Cross, Jackie Clarke, Michael Hurst and more.
* NOTE: all proceeds will be going to the Red Cross for direction to where it is needed most in the tsunami hit regions. The food, wine, entertainment, venue hire, wait staff, marketing of the events and the auction items have all been donated for free.
Event venues are being provided at no cost by the Christchurch Convention Centre, Te Papa and SKYCITY Auckland. Event management, marketing and administrative support has been provided free of charge by Avenues Event Management, SKYCITY Entertainment Group, Saatchi & Saatchi and Deloitte.
