The lure of 14 cruisy nights in the South Pacific - while helping bring a smile to families of sick kids - will hopefully be a winner at this year's Supper Club.

The popular annual fundraiser is back on April 2 to raise money for the Ronald McDonald Family Retreat in Ngongotaha.

And this year Harvey World Travel Rotorua, Holland America and Rotorua Airport have combined to donate the major prize up for auction - a 14-night South Pacific island cruise for two with the five-star Holland America line, as well as flights to and from Sydney and a night's accommodation in Sydney before the cruise.

Supper Club organiser Linley Parry said they had again been "completely spoilt" to receive such an amazing prize to auction off: "We are phenomenally blessed to get the amount of support we get."


Mrs Parry said she expected the prize - to be taken in early December - to be tremendously popular.

"I think anyone would love to go."

Mrs Parry said she was grateful to Deborah Kay from Harvey World Travel for organising the prize, as well as Rotorua Airport for coming on board with the flights.

Other items up for auction on the night include a Storm Davenport painting, a totara carving by artist Joe Kemp, and a fully refurbished spa pool from Stuart Pinfold at North Island Spas and Servicing, as well as plenty of other items.

Tickets for the event are "completely and utterly sold out", with a waiting list of people wanting tables.
