Tauranga Gala Dinner 2017

Tauranga’s 5-Star Corporate Entertainment Event!

Join us for an evening of entertainment and hospitality at its finest. Always a highlight on the social calendar, The Tauranga Gala Dinner will once again deliver a night to remember. With gourmet meals, fine beverages, special guest speakers and performers, rubbing shoulders with community leaders and a charity auction for CanTeen, 2017 is set to be another stellar night at ASB Arena!

This year will be a case of chatting to the chatterboxes. The legendary Andrew Mehrtens will be taking centre stage, alongside fellow All Blacks great, Frank Bunce. The perennial entertainers are both sharp as tacks and not short on wit. They will be joined by broadcasting heavyweights Scotty ‘Sumo’ Stevenson and John McBeth, who will definitely have a yarn or two up their sleeves to add to the mix.

Last year’s event sold out of VIP and Premium Tables quickly. Don’t miss your chance to be a part of Tauranga’s annual 5-star event – book now!

The Charity Auction is run as a separate component of the event, with all proceeds from the auction going to the charity’s cause. This is operated separately from the commercial arm of the event, which is underwritten by Events Innovated Ltd with no risk or expense placed on the charity.
