Waitangi Day Meetup Buffet

Saturday, 4th February 2023

Mersea, 699 Avenue of the Palms, Treasure Island, San Francisco

6:00 pm - 9:00 pm

The SF Kiwis board have decided to have a smaller event this year, with a hope to return to our full blown event for 2024.

Therefore, we're putting on a small fundraising meetup (with very limited tickets), to commemorate Waitangi Day 2023 with other Kiwis (and pseudo-Kiwis).

The one thing similar to previous years that we expect is that tickets to this event will be sold out fast, so don't dilly-dally! As it is a smaller venue for this year, there are a lot less seats available.

Anthony Mosse M.B.E. will deliver a short speech, but otherwise it's a meet, greet, and eat all night, with a Taco buffet, including NZ Lamb, and vegetarian options, that will be available for grazing-like activities all evening.

We'll be having a usual raffle as well, with some great prizes including a $300 pair of Sony Headphones (donated by Swyft), NZ wine, a SF Kiwis t-shirt, and other great stuff.

This event is usually the fundraiser that helps us pay our bills each year, but the pandemic has denied us the last 2 years of being able to do this fundraising.

$75 - Member Price

Your membership must be current and paid

Individual member means you and 1 guest at member pricing

Family and Business members may invite up to 3 guests at member pricing

Not a paid member yet? Then click here to become a full paid member. Our membership fees are incredibly cheap still.

However, per the above about Waitangi Day fundraiser tickets for paid members only, we want to also announce that our membership fees, that have been the same price for the last 15-plus years, will be increasing the day after Waitangi Day.

Membership fees are our main source of income, other than events, and due to the pandemic causing cancellation of many events, we have relied on our reserves to pay the bills, but that money is now getting a bit low for comfort. The data tells us that there are many usually paid-up members who have let their memberships lapse, probably because of the lack of event tickets making them renew first, so this is the second notice for people to renew before the fees go up slightly.

The bar will be a no-host bar (pay-as-you-go), so come on down to one of the best views of the city in the area, commemorate an important date in New Zealand's history, and have a good natter with other Bay Area Kiwis, who you may not have seen for a couple of years!

We'll also have supply of the new "original design" SF Kiwis t-shirts for sale. 2 different t-shirt cuts, regular, and a V-neck. All sizes available whilst supply lasts...
