Hawke’s Bay Wine Auction

Every year a group of very talented and successful winemakers and artists, supported by select group of Hawke’s Bay businesses come together to donate, showcase and celebrate their works on a national and international stage with a charity auction. The success of this event allows all contributors to acknowledge those less fortunate in our community by gifting auction proceeds to Cranford Hospice. In 2018, the Hawke’s bay Wine Auction raised and donated $260,500 to Cranford Hospice. MRD is proud to be a platinum sponsor of this important charity event.


For the last 5 years, MRD have been proud to sponsor the Harcourts Art X exhibition. A worthy cause that raises funds (Over $900,000 to date) for the Hawke’s Bay community and showcases some of the finest art from artist from across New Zealand.
