CHARITY AUCTION

Each year The Tauranga Gala Dinner invites a local charity along to raise funds and awareness via a charity auction at the event. Our 2021 charity partner is Tauranga Te Papa Rotary, who will be raising funds for Cure Kids, the Bay of Plenty Youth Development Trust and Rotary's charitable causes.

Cure Kids is a national foundation that enables high-impact, New Zealand-based medical research to help save, extend and improve the lives of children diagnosed with serious life-impacting and life-limiting health conditions. Cure Kids is the largest funder of child health research outside of the government.

The BOP Youth Development Trust provides a fitness-based service to young people and their families, which challenges and expands a young person's horizons, perceptions, values, abilities and actions through fitness training, education, social interaction and role modelling. The Trust is based in Tauranga, and runs the Tauranga Boxing Academy, which empowers local youth to become the best version of themselves.

At The Tauranga Gala Dinner, 100% of the auction proceeds go to the charity's cause and has become a very important way for local organisations to raise funds. The Tauranga Gala Dinner provides this opportunity risk-free to the charity. We know this type of event is a great platform for charities to host an auction, which also adds an extra element of excitement to the evening as well. There are always some incredible and usually-unattainable items or experiences up for grabs, which you won't find anywhere else. You could be lucky enough to be going home with a piece of history or a money-can't-buy adventure!

 

The charity auction is run separately from the commercial arm of the event, with all charitable funds and donations going to the charity.

 

COVID-19 RESPONSE

Events are safely able to operate under Alert Level 1, and we aim to deliver an event that is safe for all patrons. Working alongside the team at Trustpower Baypark , we will be ensuring that all safety advice will be followed at the event and making sure that our guests' wellbeing is front of mind. This may include hand sanitiser stations, regular cleaning of bathrooms and high-use areas, contact tracing protocols and other requirements that may come up prior to the event.

We also advise our guests to follow the below guidelines:

  • Wash your hands regularly and before you eat

  • Make use of the hand sanitiser stations supplied

  • Follow hygienic cough and sneeze etiquette

  • Do not attend the event if you feel ill
     

On the unlikely chance that New Zealand's Alert Levels change, and previous restrictions around large events are re-introduced by the government in such a way that would cancel this event, then your booking will be fully refunded. Your peace of mind and wellbeing is of most importance to us.
