CASE STUDIES
Charity Event / WONS Charity Ball

Why Only Events?

Having missed out on securing some crucial funding for its work, Auckland-based WONS decided to get creative with its fundraising. It developed the concept of a May Day Charity Ball, with the aim of raising its profile, attracting generous donations and injecting some mid-winter glamour, excitement and sophistication into the city’s social scene.
Timing the Ball to coincide with WONS’s 21st anniversary of working with women and their families to promote wellness, the team was looking for an event with innovation, panache and brilliant audacity. Having worked previously with Only Events, they knew just where to find it!

Meeting the challenge

Only Events went all out to make sure that, if you hadn’t bought your ticket to this event, you’d always wish you had. For the 300 celebrities and supporters who arrived at the stunning Auckland Museum Events Centre in their best frocks and black ties, the evening was first class from start to finish – from a red carpet and bubbles on arrival to a delicious three-course dinner, cool entertainment from Iva Lamkum and irresistible dancing music from ‘The Mermaids’.
The highlight was of course the Charity Auction, with guests vying for a myriad of opportunities that included a signed Fender guitar from the Rolling Stones.
Topping it all off: media coverage you just can’t buy, including a write-up in the New Zealand Woman’s Weekly – check it out here! and a front page wrap on the New Zealand Herald. Both events were also featured in 'The A List'.


Delivering the results

Our inaugural ball was everything we hoped it would be, and more. With all the ingredients of fantastic location, superb entertainment and amazing food and wine, it was a fitting celebration of our work – and the astonishing generosity of those who attended simply blew us away. Thanks again, Only Events! ”
