The annual GABA Charity Auction & Dinner is the major fundraiser for the GABA Charitable Trust, which has given out community grants and tertiary scholarships totalling over $175,000 throughout the last decade. In the current economic climate, the real need for GABA grants amongst the gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) communities has never been greater!
GABA Gold’s scintillating master of ceremonies has been confirmed as popular television personality Alison Mau. Her personal troupe of glamorous assistants for the night will include Pacific drag icons Buckwheat and Tess Tickle; contemporary dancer Christopher Olwage; and New Zealand’s Queen of Burlesque, Miss Leda Petit. Back again as GABA auctioneer is Michelle Maitland from George Walkers Auctions.
The evening’s programme of live entertainment provides a platform for high-achieving young musicians, with performances from tenor Cameron Barclay, a Dame Malvina Major emerging artist for New Zealand Opera; duetting double bassists Darija Andzakovic and Adam McCoy; trumpeter Nick Hall, an APO Young Achiever; and APRA award-winning composer and DJ Samuel Holloway.
The GABA Gold theme is in keeping with the gilded opulence of The Great Room at The Langham. In addition to the charity auction and classically-inclined line-up of live entertainment, the black tie (optional) occasion will include a superb three course meal and complimentary beverage on arrival.
