Fundraising Event for Our Rising Stars


6pm, Saturday 6 November 2021, Lake Hawea Hotel

Enjoy a spectacular Central Otago inspired feast at the Lake Hawea Hotel including music, entertainment, live and silent auctions and a raffle.

It’s been a challenging couple of years for our development and Olympic athletes getting the on-snow training and competitions they need to progress in their sport. Despite this, our members have had great success both here and overseas. Now it’s time to help them with the next step!

Some of our athletes are hoping to make it to the Olympics in Beijing, compete on the World Cup circuit or on the Freeride World Tour. Others are hoping to compete in the Junior Freeride World Tour, the Junior Freeski & Snowboard World Champs, FIS Alpine Races, FIS International Alpine European Children's Events and other international events in North America and Europe during the Northern Hemisphere season. Let’s get behind them to help make this happen!
We will be selling tables of 8-10 seats and individual tickets. Our committee has been busy securing raffle & auction items to fundraise on the night. Drop us a line if you wish to add an item to raffle or auction. If you can help out on the night please fill out our volunteer registration form. Our athletes & snowsports community appreciate your support!

Tickets: $125 per person or $1000 for a table of 8-10 people.

To purchase tickets or a table, please fill in booking form and we will be in contact with payment details. For queries, please email Rod Grant
