Nicholson United Autos opened in Rotorua on January 10.

"We are a newly established business and we jumped at the chance. It's a fantastic opportunity and it feels good to be part of it," Antonievic said.

Supper Club organiser Linley Parry said they were thrilled with the donation and she encouraged people to get tickets.

"There are really good odds of winning this beautiful brand new Nissan Qashqai. You get to choose the colour and it's potentially yours."

The 10th event will be held on Wednesday March 6. It starts at the Novotel Rotorua Lakeside about 5pm where a silent and live auction is held before ticket holders go into a draw to find out where they will be hosted for dinner.

Tickets are $100 a person and sold in tables of eight. The ticket cost covers a three-course meal.

All proceeds raised go towards the operational cost of the Ronald McDonald Family Retreat on the shores of Lake Rotorua at Ngongotaha. The retreat is a holiday for families of sick children.
