Cirque Fire Comes To Town

Cirque Fire Comes To Town

The year's most glamorous circus - the Fire and Ice Gala Dinner - is coming to town on 4 September, raising funds for The Breast Cancer Research Trust.

Sponsored by Revlon, the Cirque Fire and Ice Gala Dinner will see guests indulge in the opulent Louis Roederer Champagne Hour, before dining under the Big Top as the circus continues to unfold before their eyes.

"This year our supporters will yet again have a fabulous evening with sumptuous food and wine, dancing, fantastic circus performances and the opportunity to take home prizes that money just cannot buy”, says The Trust's CEO Alison Taylor.

"All of the money raised on the night will go towards The Trust's core goal of finding a cure for breast cancer in the next decade, so we're aiming to beat last year's fundraising total of $150,000."

Guests, including Trelise Cooper, Petra Bagust and Geeling Ng, will have the chance to walk away with once in a lifetime prizes such as customised Vespas with designs by Trelise Cooper and Zambesi; original Crowded House lyrics; exclusive front row tickets at Karen Walker's New York Fashion Week show; a piece of Cristina Popovici art; a guitar autographed by Paul McCartney; and an uber-luxurious Distinctive Holiday Homes vacation.

The Breast Cancer Research Trust is New Zealand's only not for profit organisation solely dedicated to finding a cure for breast cancer, not just within our lifetime, but in the next decade. The money raised at the Fire and Ice Gala Dinner will help The Trust stop breast cancer in its tracks.

Tickets to Cirque Fire are strictly limited at $250 per ticket or $2,500 per table of ten. To purchase tickets please visit www.curebreastcancer.org.nz or phone 0800 227 828
