Pieter Brits, of Dunedin law firm Downie Stewart, devours
a fresh Bluff oyster at a fundraiser for the city's neonatal
intensive care unit yesterday.
About 150 people bought $80 tickets to the event, organised
by Harbour Fish.
Fresh Bluff oysters were shucked on site at the Dunedin
Public Art Gallery, while diners enjoyed champagne, canapes
and live jazz music.
Harbour Fish has held the fundraiser once before, in 2012.
That year about $2000 was raised for the neonatal intensive
care unit at Dunedin Hospital. Organisers hoped more would be
generated by yesterday's event.
