2020 Gala – Postponed
Sadly, due to the ongoing uncertainties with Covid-19, we have reluctantly decided to postpone the Gala Dinner, originally scheduled for the 18th March 2020.
WE ARE NOT CANCELLING, WE ARE POSTPONING THE GALA UNTIL FURTHER NOTICE
We had a wonderful programme of entertainment, some amazing prizes and over 300 tickets sold. Special thanks to Eric Rush, Sir Michael Jones, Jackie Clarke, Richie McCaw and Punialavaa for all their help and support with what was going to be an exciting Gala event.
This Gala will be back when the world settles down and it will be better than ever.
Thanks to the generosity of those who donated such incredible prizes for our auction, we will still have these wonderful experiences and items available, as well as some new prizes to add to the auction.
Nobody can be sure when life will return to normal, but when it does we will be ready and eager to continue our work, raising much needed funds for those who need it most in Samoa.
We look forward to updating you sometime in the future with more details about the Gala Auction and we thank you for your understanding and ongoing support.
Samoa gives a lot to New Zealand sport, so it’s time to give back!

Former All Black captain Richie McCaw speaking about our previous fundraising:
“I felt privileged to help raise the funds to assist Ben. It was very satisfying to me to have so many other All Blacks, Kiwis and Silver Ferns get behind us. Ben is a courageous young man and deserves all the help we can give. Through him, we have become aware of many other people with spinal injuries in Samoa and Fiji whose lives are very bleak. So I want to do what I can to make their loads a little lighter so they can live with dignity and purpose.”
