Kate dedicated her life to teaching and influenced the lives of so many young people here in the Wakatipu, opening their eyes to the world of performance and helping them to gain confidence on and off the stage. Sadly, Kate passed away from cancer at the young age of 45 leaving her husband Teaukura (T) and her three young girls Anika, Aya and Malia. The Kate Moetaua Foundation will provide an opportunity for her children to carry on the work that their Mum started through distributing money to talented and aspiring young sports people and artists here in the Wakatipu to help them achieve their dreams and fulfil their potential in these disciplines.

A range of charity auction items has also been announced for next Saturday.
