Regatta Bar & Eatery on Takapuna's waterfront hosted the North Harbour Club’s Bastille Day fundraising dinner on Wednesday July 14th. One hundred and forty guests – many looking very French – enjoyed a seven course degustation menu with matching wines provided by valued club sponsor EuroVintage. Seafood on the night was provided by Intersea and the meat by Carve Meat Co. to support the charity. Host Andy Ruzich of Regatta spoke about the menu, Ben Longhurst of EuroVintage spoke about the wine matches, Kate Luxton of Carve spoke about the sensational meats provided. Club President Phil Brosnan welcomed and thanked the attendees as well as the generous event sponsors. Funds raised during the hugely enjoyable evening went towards the North Harbour Club’s annual AIMES Awards – scholarship grants awarded annually (since 1995) to young people achieving excellence in the areas of the Arts, Innovation, Music, Education, Sport and Community Service. AIMES Award recipient and singer Tayla Alexander entertained the lively and colourful crowd that included members of the Benefitz and Channel Mag teams. Benefitz was also a sponsor of the event.
