Big thank you to everyone who has RSVP’d to our Friends of SC event this week. Sadly, we’ve made the decision to cancel this event, due to various happenings in the SC whānau.

It looked like there was going to be a great turnout, and we were so looking forward to seeing you and sharing our strategy to help put an end to ocean pollution 🌊 

The next time we can all get together will be the Sustainable Coastlines Fundraising Ball. So if you haven’t yet got your tickets, head to Humanitix and we’ll see you there!

Hilton Hotel
Princes Wharf

We would love you to join us at the 11th annual Sustainable Coastlines Fundraising Ball on Thursday 29 September 2022. We’re back at our roots at the Hilton Hotel on Princes Wharf.

Your ticket price includes hors d’oeuvres, a three-course plated dinner, beverages from Corona and wines from The Good Grape.  The live entertainment element is still being investigated but as always DJ Murry Sweetpants with the Shoulder Rubs will bring their funky beats for the post dining dance floor.

Doors open at 6pm for a dinner seating at 7.30pm.

All ticket sales, along with the amazing live and silent auction packages up for grabs on the night, will raise funds for our ongoing work inspiring and educating others to look after the coastlines and waterways we all love.


Getting there:

Just head to the Hilton Hotel, Princes Wharf, 147 Quay St, Auckland CBD.  The function starts off in style with drinks from 6.30pm, so please be on time so that you don’t miss out on the fantastic food, drinks, and performances!

Getting dressed:

Our Fundraising Ball is a great chance to dust off the suits and frocks, don the dancing shoes and have a rollicking good night out.


During the evening we will be holding silent and live auctions with celebrity auctioneer Sabine Davison and with an exceptional range to bid on, there will be something for everyone. Get ready to get bidding on the night.


We don’t have any event-specific parking, however, all-day parking is available at the Viaduct and Downtown car parks, which are both nearby, and via Wilson’s Parking on Princes Wharf. Limited paid valet parking is also available at the hotel subject to availability.
