Since 2008, Te Omanga has showcased some of Wellington's finest culinary talent through this major annual fundraising event. Vintners' Lunch now enviably attracts large numbers of well-networked guests from right across the wider Hutt Valley region. Through the purchase of tickets for the event, as well as auctions on the day, Te Omanga can ensure all the money this key event raises goes directly to the hospice so we can continue to provide our free service to the community we share. This year we're excited to bring this fabulous fundraiser back to the Hutt Valley, and the very heart of the community who benefit from our services. On Sunday 3 August 2014, we will be welcoming our guests to Trentham Racecourse, for an afternoon of fun, friendship and great food. Six top Wellington Chefs will be creating a divine degustation course for each of our 300 guests. Each Vintners' Lunch course is expertly matched with wines to enhance the flavours and visual delight of each beautifully presented plate.

- Ivan Nugraha - Wellington Racing Club
- Sebastian Lambert - Le Cordon Bleu
- Ryan Tattersall - Cobar Restaurant
- John Allred - Osteria Del Toro

Te Omanga's Garden of Appreciation
This joint project between Te Omanga Hospice, Hutt River Vallley Rotary Club and the Hutt City Council, since November 2005 has enjoyed the support of local families looking to create a permanent tribute to a loved one or to commemorate a special event or memory. Engraved bricks are laid along the pathways in the garden, each one a lasting reminder of someone or something special. The garden is located in Bracken Street in Petone and has increasingly become a popular space in which to spend time in quiet thought, in remembrance and reflection.
The established trees, the bird life along with the tranquil ambience make this a place to appreciate the services provided by Te Omanga while at the same time providing a permanent record. Quality clay bricks are supplied for $100.00 each, which entitles people to have a loved one's name or message (containing up to 28 letters in 2 lines of 14 characters, including spaces), engraved on the brick. If you would like to remember someone special this way, please contact Te Omanga's Fundraising & Marketing team on email@example.com. Thank you.
