Thriller in the Chillers
Thriller in the Chiller 2017. Over the past 7 years Thriller in the Chiller has helped raise in excess of $200,000 for deserving local charities. This year, through the help of our contenders and give-a-little we are supporting the Branches Charitable Trust with the aim of raising $50,000.
We will once again be holding a live and silent auction on the night of the Thriller - so stay tuned to find out what the items are going to be and bring your cheque book on the night.
Once we pick our final contenders we will be launching "give-a-little" pages for each of them and we encourage you to show your support for these brave locals by donating to their individual pages. Last year our contenders alone raised over $15,000!

Introducing the Branches Charitable Trust! The Branches Camp is one of New Zealand’s oldest and truest full immersion outdoor education camps and continues to provide Wakatipu High School students the opportunity to experience the outdoors in its truest sense.
With no parents, no power, no internet, no make-up, no flushing toilets, showers or any creature comforts from home the Branches Camp marks a coming of age for our local youth. Over the course of 12 days they come to rely on the things that really count - friendship, teamwork and self-reliance. They are challenged physically and mentally. From abseiling, rafting and three day tramps to cooking their own meals and digging toilets. They learn to appreciate our spectacular natural environment and what it has to offer as well as learning about themselves and their own character. The institution that is the Branches Camp has shaped our local children for over four decades, its legacy is powerful and the experience enduring.
Your support will help ensure the ongoing viability of the camp so that our students of the future will still be able to participate in this unique, amazing and life changing opportunity.
