GOLD sponsors 2023


Mataura licensing trust

The Mataura Licensing Trust is privileged to be bestowed with the naming rights for the 34th MLT Hokonui Fashion Awards 2023 and to continue our long association with this iconic Gore event.


The Trust distributes all profits back to the local community by way of investment into high quality services and much needed facilities, and through financial support of community networks, sports clubs, music events, senior citizens, educational grants and a focus on well-being.

​We help people and organisations by investing in local community projects where it is most needed and where it will make the most impact. We are locals supporting locals.


The trusts Community foundation

The Trusts Community Foundation supports the Mataura Licensing Trust in funding events. 


The foundation was established in June 2010 and it's mission is to provide funding for a wide range of clubs, charities and community groups - in fields as diverse as sport, arts, culture, health and education. It is a nationwide not-for-profit company. Funds come from gaming machines operated in some Licensing Trusts, hotels and sports clubs around New Zealand.


Gore district council

The Gore District Council partners with organisations throughout the District to deliver a calendar of varied events, many professionally run by dedicated volunteers, that brings New Zealand to our doorstep.  The No8 wire can-do-attitude of locals, combined with high-end events, embodies Rural City Living.
