We’re looking forward to an awesome night, with a three-course seated meal, beverage package and performances from some of New Zealand’s top musicians. Performers include Aotearoa’s leading (and world-renowned) concert pianist Michael Houstoun, NZ’s top jazz ensemble Nairobi Trio, the sensational contemporary singer/songwriter Hollie Smith, and the critically acclaimed up-and-comer Bella Kalolo and her 8-piece band The Soul Symphony.
For those who have bought tickets: in the interests of saving paper we won’t be mailing these out. Your name will simply be on the door, along with the number of tickets you’ve bought. If you bought tickets for a group or table, just make sure the rest of your group knows who bought the tickets: they’ll need to tell us what booking name they’re under. Event is strictly R18: Sorry kids! Please remember to bring your photo ID on the night.
If you’re looking for the perfect suit for the ball, our good friends at Exclusive Suit Hire have plenty of top-of-the-line options for hire. And, in support of our cause, they’ll be donating $10 from every suit rental to Sustainable Coastlines! To sort your suit out, head to one of Exclusive Suit Hire’s locations in Auckland CBD, Botany, Mt Eden or Albany, call them on 0800 266 466, or visit their site at www.exclusivesuithire.co.nz. Cheers guys!
Table and group bookings?
During the three-course meal we’ll be seated at tables of ten. If you’re interested in booking a table for you and your crew, all you need to do is write ’10’ under quantity on our ticketing page, and you’ll have a table set aside especially for you.
For group bookings of less than ten, all you need to do is select the quantity of tickets you require. We’ll do our best to seat you together, however numbers may dictate that some groups are split across tables. That way, you’ll get to meet some awesome new people while you enjoy your meal!
A little help from our friends?
Please feel free to forward this email on to your friends, clients, contacts, siblings, parents, in-laws, colleagues, etc and invite them to join us for what is certain to be a fantastic occasion.
If you have access to a printer, please feel free to decorate your walls with our event poster to help us promote the Ball.
This is going to be fantastic
It gives us great pleasure to announce The Sustainable Coastlines Charity Ball, to be held on Saturday 18 September at the Hilton in downtown Auckland. Those of you who attended our Aotea/Great Barrier Island event earlier this year will remember the Hilton’s kind support in offering a superb location for our early morning departure, and it’s great to be working with them again.
The evening promises to be one of glamour, world-class entertainment, mouth-watering food and drinks, and generally feeling great about giving something back to the coastlines we love. Aotearoa’s leading concert pianist – Michael Houstoun – will start the evening off in style while Hollie Smith – the sensational singer / songwriter – will play an amazing acoustic set.
All ticket sales, along with an art auction during the evening, will help raise funds for our ongoing work on projects to sustain and protect our coastlines. Shortly we’ll be announcing a live band to add to the line-up, further details about the ball and will be making tickets available for purchase on this page. Keep checking back here as we’ll be releasing further information closer to the night.
