Catering to both locals and 'mainlanders' who love fine food, sunshine and of course wonderful Man O'War wines, this event is a sought after soirée on the summer calendar and a vital fundraiser for Auckland's Westpac Rescue Chopper and the Waiheke Island community. 

Over the years, New Zealand food royalty have graced this event. Josh Emett, Ben Bayly, Sean Connolly, Mark Southon, Gareth Stewart and many, many more elite chefs have been a part of this special fundraiser and presented incredible menus.

Fullers are proud to again provide free transport from Auckland City, via Matiatia, to the private jetty at Man O'War bay - strictly limited to the first 300. Guests enjoy the beautiful lunch and fine wines in a relaxed, garden setting like no other in New Zealand. Live music & a charitable auction feature in a most unique afternoon, with the finest food, wine and views this great city can provide.

The Auckland Rescue Helicopter flew 307 people off Waiheke Island last year, which means that fundraising is absolutely crucial for keeping the Waiheke community safe and well. The Man O’War Summer Lunch raised over $250,000 last year for the Auckland Rescue Helicopter Trust.
