Gathering of Geezers 2018

The Century Batteries Gathering of Geezers motorsport legends dinner in Wanaka has now raised just on $100,000 for two local community trusts since its inception.

The sixth annual Geezers dinner will be held on the 22 November 2018 at the Warbirds and Wheels Museum at Wanaka Airport honouring 25 ‘Geezers’ – men and women who have achieved the pinnacle in their chosen motorsport discipline or those who have made an outstanding contribution to motorsport.

This year’s superdraw of amazing prizes from the world of sport, luxury accommodation and breathtaking experiences will be raising proceeds for the Upper Clutha Children’s Medical Trust and the Lake Wanaka Coast Guard. The Children’s trust helps local families who have sick children while the Lake Wanaka Coastguard protect and serve all Lake users and the environment.

More than 300 guests from around New Zealand will attend the dinner with Sky TV’s Stephen McIvor back as MC.  “What makes this event different is that it honours people from all aspects of motor sport under one roof on one night. Over the past few years we’ve had legends of circuit racing, motor bikes, drag racing, power boat racing, speedway, jet sprinting, rallying and a whole lot more recognised,” says Stephen.

This year we will be announcing some impressive new sporting names who will be joining us as esteemed Geezers, so keep up to date with all the news on our Facebook page.

Amongst the prizes and laughter will be a beautiful dinner, where the guests will be wined and dined with local gourmet produce.

An individual ticket is $350 and $3000 for a table for 9 people with your very own Geezer being the tenth around the table!

To secure your table please email admin@warbirdsandwheels.com advising of number of tables or tickets required and details for invoicing.

Alternatively, you can make payment to the Geezer Charitable Dinner bank account 06-0594-0100868-01 using your company name as a reference and email to book your spot.

Once you have booked and paid for your Geezers table, tickets and details will be emailed to you.

The Sixth annual Gathering of Geezers will surpass any other so we look forward to seeing you there for a night of motorsport passion, all in aid of two worthy charities.
