Bottle Auction

Auckland H.O.G. Chapter Meeting & Bottle Auction

Kiaora Auckland HOG whanau.
Members, new members, family and friends are invited to the Akarana Golf Club for our monthly Chapter night and annual Bottle Auction fundraiser for MDN.

Bar and Menu are available from 6.30 pm. Share a drink or two and a meal with members before the meeting commences at 7.30 pm with the bottle auction to follow soon afterwards.

Special Event: We welcome you all to our annual bottle auction, one of our key fundraising activities for Muscular Dystrophy Northern, which will be held at our June chapter night. For those that are new to the experience, several pointers:

  • Bring a wrapped bottle (or two if you want) that will be pooled and auctioned
  • Please, NO booby prizes - bottles of water no longer cut the mustard and are no longer hip. 
  • Our very experienced chief auctioneer will seek to extract your best bids as donations to MDN
  • Please feel free to buy your own bottle back if you so wish. 
  • We will have EFTPOS there and can also accept telephone banking deposits, just in case you forget to bring any cash. 
  • If you can not make it or miss out on the auction, please feel free to make a small donation to MDN. 

So please, come and show your support for MDN - this is a key event in their calendar too - and Trevor and Joy would love to see you on the night.

Date: 27/06/2022
Time: from 6.30 pm-9.00 pm.
Location: Akarana Golf Club, 1388 Dominion Rd, Mt Roskill. <Click here for Map>

Join the Auckland HOG Chapter in Paihia for Labour Weekend.

There will be an Auckland Chapter ride and 2 night stay to Paihia over Labour Weekend, with all Chapter Members and their partners welcome to come along and enjoy the event.
