Feast 2022, presented by Archibalds, raised a game-changing $300,000 for child and youth mental health in Waitaha Canterbury. More than 330 people filled the Rakaia room at Te Pae Christchurch Convention Centre on Saturday night for a magical Feast, with the venue exquisitely styled by Kim Chan.
The funds raised are earmarked for Kahurangi - a modern, fit-for-purpose mental health outpatient space for children and young people. Feast was emceed by Māia ambassador Mike McRoberts, with stunning performances by Mel Parsons and Yoomia.
There was lively bidding for ten sensational auction items including backyard cricket with Black Cap Tom Latham, a private whisky tasting with Canterbury sporting legend Scott 'Razor' Robertson, and artwork by internationally acclaimed artist Max Gimblett.
The Māia team of trustees, staff and volunteers were swept up by the aroha in the room and are so grateful to our Feast sponsors and supporters.
