CHARITY AUCTION

Each year The Tauranga Gala Dinner invites a local charity along to raise funds and awareness via a live auction at the event. For 2020 our charity recipient is the Graeme Dingle Foundation.

 

The Graeme Dingle Foundation is a nationwide with an office based here in the Bay of Plenty. They do an incredible job of working with local at-risk youth, and focus on increasing efficacy and confidence in our young people. They provide value-based programs in schools, mentorship pathways in high schools,  peer support systems and much more!

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 charity's 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

 

We are excited to be able to get back to what we love! Bringing events to town and letting our community come together for an entertaining night out.

Events are safely able to operate under Level 1, but there is still work to do! Working alongside the team at Trustpower Arena, 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
     

If 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.
