Only Events Charity Event Planning Auckland NZ


Our inaugural ball was everything we hoped it would be, and more... Thanks again, Only Events!
Ruth Davy, Chief Executive, WONS


Only Events has been thrilled to help a number of New Zealand charities boost their profiles, increase supporter numbers and attract very generous donations – proving that innovative, fun and meaningful events can make all the difference to fundraising success.

Working closely with our charity clients and their sponsors, supporters and other partners, we take care of all event details, such as:

  finding, securing and decorating the fundraising event venue
  designing the menu and arranging all catering, including waiting staff
  sourcing and negotiating sponsorship from associated organisations, suppliers and others through direct funds, discounts on services and goods for participant ‘goody bags’
  managing fundraising initiatives such as charity auctions
  arranging space, microphones, screens and other equipment for speakers
  coordinating florists, photographers, security staff and other suppliers
  liaising with news and other media
  organising exhibition stands
  tracking the budget throughout and managing the event on the day

Topping it all off: media coverage you just can’t buy - a front page wrap on the New Zealand Herald.

With all the ingredients of fantastic location, superb entertainment and amazing food and wine, it was a fitting celebration of our work – and the astonishing generosity of those who attended simply blew us away. Thanks again, Only Events! ”
