The event will take place thanks to the efforts of volunteer Russell Garbutt and support from Alexandra-based Pioneer Energy.

Otago Community Hospice chief executive Ginny Green said the hospice fundraising target of $2.5million each year relied on the goodwill of the community to ensure free specialist palliative care for anyone in the region who needs it.

Tickets cost $125 per person.
