Welcome to the Wanganui.org website! This website features the latest in web development technology, allowing us to take the pulse of our city on a real-time basis.

A massive thank you to everyone who came to the ball and our sponsors who helped us to make $10,000 to give to our charities this year. We couldn't have done it without you! Preparations are already underway to make next years ball bigger and better than this year. We'd love to hear from anyone who would be interested in being a sponsor or friend of the 2018 Poppy Ball.
