Hospice Tairawhiti Shaken Not Stirred Casino Night

Lawson Field Theatre, Vogel St, Gisborne.
17 May 2013

Cost: $75 per ticket

High rollers, big spenders, social butterflies and James Bond aspirants are invited to an evening of glitz and glamour, cocktails and canapés at the Hospice Tairawhiti Casino Fundraiser.

This James Bond casino fundraiser is a new twist to previous years wine and art auctions.  Instead of a seated dinner, cocktails and canapés, live music and casino entertainment will be held at Lawson Field Theatre on May 17.

Guests are urged to rally a group of friends and come dressed to kill for “Shaken Not Stirred.” Ticket entry includes $1m in chips to play on the night.

Hospice Tairawhiti (previously Gisborne Palliative Care) General Manager Barbara Grout said last year’s Medieval wine and art auction was a huge success, raising over $19,000.

“We thank the community for the support they have given the Hospice Tairawhiti wine and art auction and look forward to adding this new event to our fundraising repertoire,” she said.

Guests will have the opportunity to give generously while having a great night out with the wine and art auction remaining an integral part of the event. 

“Hospice Tairawhiti are delighted to confirm Indevin Independent Winemakers and Craigs Investment partners as major sponsors for Shaken Not Stirred. Their ongoing support is a driving force behind the success of our events and testament to their support of our community,” said Mrs. Grout.

Hospice Tairawhiti has been caring for the terminally ill and their families since 1980. They rely on grants, donations and funding to continue to provide these services free to the wider Gisborne region.

Opportunities to donate wine and art and Sponsorship are still available for this popular event. Tickets are $75 and can be purchased from ExpressPR, 130 Ormond Road.

For any enquiries, please contact auction co-ordinator Nicola Chrisp on 8677444 or email

Peter Brown (1921-2005) was one of New Zealand’s finest exponents of the classical painting tradition.

By virtue of his outstanding ability in drawing and perception of form he was a master at capturing the
essential character of his subjects.

His landscape, portrait and still life paintings are fine art of the highest quality and can be found in
collections around the world.

All at McGregor Wrights have been honoured by our association with this fine, dedicated artist and
special man.
