Sensational auction prize gifted by GCH Aviation

Just imagine boarding a private jet and being whisked away for a fully-hosted day on the Waitematā Harbour to watch the America’s Cup. It’s a once-in-a-lifetime experience – and it could be yours!

Thanks to the truly remarkable team at GCH Aviation, this incredible experience is up for auction at the Colliers’ International Christchurch golf tournament, being held on Friday 26 February – with all proceeds going to Māia Health Foundation.

The entire experience has been donated by the GCH team, and it’s valued at more than $20,000 (although we think it’s priceless!). All transfers to and from the airport are included and the winners of the auction will be fully hosted with lunch aboard a super yacht.

The lucky bidder will win two seats on GCH Jet Operations' private jet, for the most decadent ever flight from Christchurch to Auckland. After arrival in Auckland you will be transported to a super yacht, where you will sail off into the Waitamatā Harbour to be in among the action on the water for a day that features the global stars of sailing. 

You will return to Christchurch on the private jet that evening.

GCH’s private jet is a Bombardier Challenger 604, an elegant aircraft with a comfortable widebody cabin that can accommodate ten passengers. It’s first class in every seat!

If you’re not attending the Colliers’ golf tournament you can bid remotely for this prize at auction. Bidders can pre-register with Anna Small anna.small@colliers.com in advance and an agent will call you at the time of the auction.

Funds raised at Colliers’ annual charity golf tournament go directly to Māia’s child and youth mental health project. We're on a mission to help fundraise for a modern, fit-for-purpose new facility for Child, Adolescent and Family (CAF) Outpatients. You can find out more about the project here.

Thank you to the team at GCH for supporting Māia Health Foundation to help take our health services in Canterbury from #GoodToGreat.

The Auction will take place on Friday 26 February from 5.30pm -6.00pm at the Christchurch Golf Club, Shirley.

Terms & Conditions: Date to be arranged by GCH. There will be other guests on the same flight.
