Skycity Variety Academy Awards’ Long Lunch

Variety - The Children’s Charity - and SKYCITY are combining their vision of fun and entertainment to bring the 77th Academy Awards direct to Auckland on Monday 28 February.

The Long Lunch offers an afternoon of sumptuous food, continuous entertainment, glitz and glamour in the company of local celebrities.

Since its establishment, Variety – The Children’s Charity, has raised more than $1 million to help disadvantaged New Zealand children. Every year Variety is the driving force behind a number of events designed to be both fundraisers and ‘FUN’ raisers. All proceeds from the event will be distributed by Variety to New Zealand children in need.

SKYCITY Auckland is a long-term supporter of the Auckland community and children’s health, through its five-star sponsorship of the Starship Foundation, as well as being a major sponsor for Kidz First Children’s Hospital.
