They do a lot of work in the North Island,” Klatt said.The banquet begins at 5:30 p.m. with cocktails, viewing of auction items, raffle ticket sales and a silent auction.

After dinner there will be door prizes, a live auction and raffle draws.Tickets for the event are $50 and limited seating is available.
