Great result for Orewa Beach Festival 2017
The Auckland Westpac Rescue Helicopter Trust will have more money to fund rescues this year thanks to Hibiscus Rodders’ highly successful Anniversary Weekend Beach Festival at Orewa.
Our Beach Festival organiser Sharon Morris was extremely pleased with the event, and so proud that we managed to raise a grand total of $37,000 over last year’s record of $35,000 for the Auckland Rescue Helicopter Trust. A major contributor to the fundraising was the popular auction, where a range of donated goods raised a record of $12,750! “It was wonderful to see so many people looking so happy at the festival,” says Sharon. “We have the perfect setting for the event, here at Orewa, and we’ve had fabulous feedback, with spectators and car owners telling us they had a great time.”

Hundreds of classy cars, an estimated 50,000 plus people and stunning weather combined to make this one of the most successful of the eight Orewa Beach Festivals to date!
Nearly 400 pre-75 and/or American cars filled the Orewa Reserve at the main Saturday event, with excellent numbers also at the Friday evening meet-and-greet and drive-in movie at the reserve, the new Saturday evening What’s Under Your Hood’ contest and the popular Sunday morning show ’n’ shine on the main street, which drew a record crowd of spectators.
Thanks to everyone for another great event... It really was a fantastic weekend and we're already looking forward to 2018!
