Every year around late July or early August we host The Vintners’ Lunch, which is our largest annual fundraising event. The event began in 2008 and showcases some of Wellington’s finest culinary talents through a six course degustation luncheon with matching New Zealand wines. Tickets are limited and cost $200 each. Tables are for ten people. This year Vintners’ Lunch is on Sunday 23 July 2017.
Each year, the hospice secures the talents of six Chefs to create original courses. In 2016 we were privileged to have James Scott – Eva Beva, Laurent Loudeac – Hippopotamus, Mark Hartstonge – Boomrock, Ryan Tattersall – Cobar Restaurant, Brent Bonner – Sarah Searancke Catering and Ant North – Ant North Catering as our Chefs.
The ongoing success of Vintners’ Lunch ensures we are able to raise funds which enable us to continue to provide specialist care to people with a life limiting condition.
Vintners’ Lunch 2016 sold out in April, and raised over $100,000 in the room on the day through our generous guests bidding on both Silent and Live Auctions.
