Easter is over and all your chocolate has probably been eaten, but we've got the Gala Dinner to look forward to!

Join us for an evening of fun, glamour and celebration. Local Government Minister Nanaia Mahuta will be delivering the opening address and Oscar Kightley will be our MC.

With 92% of Gala Dinner tickets already sold, purchase your ticket today because there might not be any left on the last day of registration (10 April).
