Stetsons and moonshine at Pembroke Wild West

Posted at 6:00am Thursday 08 Aug, 2019 | By Abby Costen newdesk@thewanakasun.co.nz

Wanaka's Holy Catholic Primary School is excited to announce that the first wave of tickets are now available for Pembroke Wild West on Saturday September 7 from 7.30pm to 11.30pm. 

Following the success of the Roaring 20s Soirée back in 2017, which raised $12,000 for the school, this fundraising event will take place in the Pembroke Pavilion at Upper Clutha Rugby Club and welcomes the community for a fun night of fancy dress, music and dancing. 

Friends of Holy Family Catholic School Wanaka (FOTS) chair Sarah Jamieson says party-goers can also expect “moonshine cocktails and both live and silent auctions.”

The money raised from this event is designated for Kapa Haka outfits and a luggage trailer for the school's community-use van, which was bought last year thanks to grants from FOTS, Lion Foundation, Callis Charitable Trust and Otago Community Trust. 

Holy Family School principal Jo McKay says: “We have been incredibly grateful to FOTS, who have, in the past 12 months, completed the fundraising for our new school playscape and given a donation towards the purchasing of a school and community van. It would be fantastic to be able to raise the funds for a luggage trailer, to enable us to use the van to its full potential and to kit out our Kapa Haka performers in culturally appropriate outfits. This is a great opportunity for our community to have a fun social night out, mixing and mingling and for a good cause at the same time.”

The Saloon Table tickets are valid for eight people, cost $700 and are currently available for purchase via email. Individual tickets will go on sale on Monday August 12 for $65 and will be available for purchase from Mitre 10 Wanaka or email fots@holyfamilywanaka.school.nz.
