LAKE TAUPO, New Zealand -  Since opening on 1 November 2009, Hilton Lake Taupo has worked tirelessly in the community to support a number of local organizations and events. Now the time has come to dust off your stilettos, dry-clean your ball gown, take hold of your partner and arrive in style at the Hilton Lake Taupo SPCA Paws Ball on Saturday, 19 June 2010.

The former Terraces Hotel has had a long history of hosting balls. The team at Hilton Lake Taupo will be pulling out all the stops to ensure that this year’s ball maintains this fine tradition.

“It is an honor for us, being a distinguished five star hotel in Taupo, to host the annual SPCA charity ball and make this a truly memorable event,” says hotel manager Clinton Farley. “It is a fantastic opportunity for Hilton Lake Taupo to be involved in the local community and support such a worthy cause at the same time."

During the black tie evening, drinks will be followed by a three course gourmet dinner designed by Head Chef Shane Yardley. Lively entertainment will be on the menu and a charity auction with master of ceremonies, Austin Harris, will raise further funds for the SPCA Animal Centre Appeal. Each ticket purchased will go into a draw to win the latest Wings and Wheels Hyundai to drive for one month.

SPCA project and strategic manager, Faye Johnson, says “Taupo SPCA is delighted to have the support of the Hilton Lake Taupo in organising The Paws Ball - our inaugural black tie event. The funds raised will be going towards the new Animal Centre and many animals will directly benefit from the generosity of all the people attending this exclusive event”.

Mayor Rick Cooper, who’s going to attend the charity ball, is pleased to see how Hilton Lake Taupo is heavily and actively involved with this event: “It is one thing to have the Hilton hotel in Taupo, but it is quite another thing to be feeling the involvement and support of such a big brand in so many events, fund raisers, and general public good. This is just amazing and very much appreciated.”

Tickets for the SPCA Charity Paws Ball are available for purchase at Harveys Taupo and at Hilton Lake Taupo. Tickets are priced $125 per person.

Hilton Lake Taupo is offering special accommodation rates starting from $180 per night in occasion of SPCA Charity Ball.
