Join us for the 3rd year of Sparkle - Hawke’s Bay finest black-tie fundraising dinner in aid of Family Works East Coast, that attracts national guests from NZ.
Previous Sparkle guests know how captivating this evening is with layers of surprise throughout. Entering the tree lined avenue at Trinity Hill, guests catch their first sense of the excitement to come. Bubbles and oysters will be served in the oversized ‘Sparkle’ clam. Laughter, glamour and mingling will take place before the Sparkle ‘reveal” that as always, will amaze our guests and engage all their senses.
Top local chefs will produce culinary sensations sourced from the very best local ingredients and paired with the finest award-winning Hawke’s Bay wines. Entertainment throughout the evening will surprise and delight guests. With a short snappy auction for a good cause, it will be a truly memorable evening!
