Westpac Chopper Gala & Charity Auction | August 2022

On Thursday 11th August 2022, we had the pleasure of planning and delivering the second annual Westpac Chopper Gala – A Night Out To Save Lives. This important event raises much needed funds to keep the Canterbury Westpac Chopper in the sky saving lives. We are delighted to announce that this year’s event raised $130,000 for the Canterbury Westpac Rescue Helicopter, equating to the funding of 26 lifesaving missions, an amazing achievement!

Guests were treated to some of the best local entertainment, locally sourced produce, and a beverage selection featuring some of the region’s awards winning wines, beers and spirits. Overall, it was a truly memorable evening for all involved and one that couldn’t have been achieved without all of the amazing efforts and generosity from our event sponsors and partners.
