We invite you to attend the inaugural Moraine Lodge 2019 Gala Charity Ball which will be held in the beautiful Moraine Lodge, Mt Cook Lakeside Retreat, Lake Pukaki.
In true high country style, our inaugural gala ball promises to be a glamorous and fun event for all ages, well as long as you are over 18!
Dust off your best and most splendorous gowns and black tie gear and walk the red carpet to the sound of the piper as you enter the lodge. Here you will be greeted with a glass of bubbles, a kaleidoscope of colour, the odd swishing kilt and a roaring fire.
Take the dance floor when you are ready to show off your dance moves, ballroom, swing, rock and roll, waltz, salsa or whatever, all to the vibe of the Little Green Men.
Or, if you just like to converse or soak up the atmosphere, join the companionship beside the fire or outside under the stars around the braziers. There is a space here for everyone.
A full gourmet supper will be served and the cash bar will be available.
We would love you to join us for a fun and very flash night in support of a great charity.
In 2019, the Gala Ball will raise funds for the Malaghan Institute for medical research into Cancer.
The Malaghan Institute is New Zealand’s world-leading independent biomedical research institute. Its cutting-edge research focuses on harnessing the innate potential of the immune system, the body’s natural defence mechanism, to find new treatments and cures across cancer, asthma and allergy, infectious disease and gut and brain health. The Malaghan Institute is currently working towards conducting New Zealand's first CAR T-cell clinical trial, a revolutionary new approach to fighting cancer using a patient’s own immune cells.
