About the Event

WHS Foundation and Jarden present....Gather & Feast - Annual Charity Gala Dinner and Auction.

Join us for an unforgettable evening at Rātā to raise funds for youth education in the Wakatipu Basin.

After the cancellation of 2020's Gala Dinner and Auction, it's time to once again gather our friends and partners to support Wakatipu High School.  Despite the challenges the last year has bought our community, with your support, we funded $200,000 in programmes for 2020 and have pledged to fund another $200,000 in programmes for 2021. 

This evening is all about having fun, meeting our valued partners, and remembering why we are here: to promote the advancement of learning, sporting, and cultural education at Wakatipu High School by looking forward and giving back.

Gather your friends and feast on a delectable four-course meal crafted by Rātā Head Chef Jonathan Williams and enjoy delicious Central Otago wines and beer while you support our local High School knowing the proceeds of this evening will produce tangible and lasting benefits to our students, the school and the community overall.


$245 per person including a four-course meal and a selection of Central Otago Wine and Beer
