The Cocktail Party – The Charity event of the year!

Hosted by Hastings Karamu Rotary. This fundraiser has been running for 28 years in 2018 started a new partnership with the Hawke’s Bay Community Fitness Centre Trust, run under Sir Graeme Avery. The Club is focused on improving opportunities for the people of Hawke’s Bay and our fundraising will help ensure all school children have the opportunity to attend, learn and challenge themselves no matter who they are. The Sports Centre ticks all our boxes. The annual fundraiser will contribute to Trust programmes that will make a real contribution to enhancing community health and sports outcomes across the Hawke’s Bay region, especially for the less privileged school children. Programmes under the trust had already got underway and they hoped through these and the planned new multi-purpose facility to improve the well-being and health of Hawke’s Bay people, while also promoting physical activity and healthy lifestyles.

With Live and Online Auctions here is your chance to come and give back to our community at one of Hawkes Bay’s most famous Charity events.
