Dear Friend,

On behalf of the Rt Hon Mike Moore, we are delighted to invite you to join Robert Kennedy Jnr (nephew of President John F Kennedy and son of Senator Robert Kennedy) at a special charity dinner in Auckland to raise money for a very worthy cause.

During Mike Moore’s three year tenure as Director-General of the World Trade Organisation, one of the most moving speeches he witnessed was by Robert Kennedy Jnr who will now be the first Kennedy to speak publicly in New Zealand.

At “An Evening with Robert F Kennedy Jnr” you will be challenged, inspired and uplifted by one of Time Magazine’s “Heroes for the Planet” who will bring all his Kennedy charisma, style and passion as an advocate for the environment.

Event highlights include:

• Live keynote speech by Robert F. Kennedy Jnr including Q&A with the audience
• Pre-dinner drinks followed by a three course gala dinner with fine wines and beers
• Live entertainment by Dave Dobbyn and backing musicians
• Master of Ceremonies Simon Dallow from TV One News
• An outstanding live charity auction including lunch with Robert F Kennedy Jnr on 17th December at Mercury Island hosted by Sir Michael Fay, a luxury 2 week holiday in South Africa including lunch with Nobel Prize winner and former President Klerk, a trip to Marlborough on Barry Colman’s private jet, a signed copy of President Barack Obama’s book and a guitar signed by Bob Dylan.
