Waikato’s premier winter event is back. Be transported to a snowflake wonderland for a fabulous night of glamour and sophistication at the LJ Hooker Cancer Society Ball, all to raise funds for a great local cause.
The ball helps fund the Waikato/Bay of Plenty Cancer Society to provide free supportive care services for people with cancer, their families and friends.
Proceeds from the event will help the Cancer Society continue to provide personalised support to anyone affected by cancer in our local communities, raise awareness through education programmes and fund vital cancer research.
Generous support and some entertaining auction bidding at last year’s ball raised $100,000. This year we’re even more ambitious, aiming to top that total with some sought-after auction items, including seven nights for up to 12 people at Casa Melograno! Situated on the eastern side of Central Italy in Le Marche, Casa Melograno is a 19th century granary, thoughtfully renovated by Taupo couple Michelle and Angelo Trediccuci, who dreamed of returning to their beloved Italy. The house sits among rolling hills of sunflowers and is only a short drive to historic city of Fano, on the Adriatic coastline. Cooking lessons, wine tastings, traditional fishing and cycling tours await in the surrounding countryside, or simply indulge in the local beaches and Italian hospitality. An exceptional opportunity to take that dream vacation you've always promised yourself.
Rub shoulders with the who’s who of the Waikato, be entertained by MC Jesse Mulligan, savor delicious food from Kerr & Ladbrook and dazzle on the dance floor all night long to the style of The Pickups.
After the runaway success of last year’s ball, tickets are predicted to sell fast. Tables are limited, so book now to avoid disappointment.
Tell your family, friends and colleagues – don’t miss a spectacular night out, helping make a difference for the one in three Kiwis affected by cancer.
