In a matter of only hours Rotorua's Supper Club 2018 will get under way.
Last year the annual fundraiser raised a whopping $142,000 for the Ronald McDonald Rotorua Retreat and this year's auction prizes are better than ever.
This year's travel package, put together by Helloworld owner and manager Deborah Kay with generous sponsorship from Singapore Airlines and Windstar, is a 10-night cruise to Europe for two on the luxury liner Wind Surf.
The cruise takes in Italy, Croatia, Montenegro, Greece and Slovenia and is valued at $20,000.

Also up for grabs is a $20,000 kitchen, bathroom or reception package and a Ray White package that includes $10,000 off real estate fees if you're buying or selling a home.
Supper Club organiser Rob Parry said recent New Zealand My Kitchen Rules team Rotorua's Natasha Whitewood and Hera Waitai, and runners-up Heather Andersen and Mitch MacDonald would be cooking for tables of eight at the Ronald McDonald Family Retreat.
"We will also be having Vanessa Baxter from Masterchef cooking for a table at the NZ Fire Station, which you would not often do. We are also lucky enough to have Pure Cruise taking a table out on to Lake Rotoiti.
"We are also lucky enough for the first time to have some tables being set up in a marquee on the field of the Rotorua International Stadium."
In total, 44 lucky tables will experience the best cuisine that Rotorua can offer.
Supper Club takes place tomorrow night.
