Oatley F.C. Gala Dinner 2018 – Wrap up

  • Post category:News
Oatley F.C.’s Gala Dinner was held last Saturday evening at The Kyle Bay. Over 100 Oatley F.C. members and guests dressed up for a night of good food, great company, prizes and purchases, and our DJ kept the dancers going.
The event, hosted brilliantly by Renown canteen BBQ boss John Stanton, was a great success with many highlights, including:
  • Speeches by VIP guests Mr David Coleman MP and Mr Mark Coure MP; who are both big supporters of local football and continue to generously assist Oatley FC.
  • Oatley F.C. President Peter Jones’ speech; commenting on our recent restructure to become ‘Oatley Football Club’ and the advancement in club-wide facilities, and then encouraging Oatley F.C. to look forward with a focus on the development of coaches and players within the club.
  • Presentations and recognition of attending sponsors from Vortex Property Group, Alland Group, and The Currency Exchange
  • 30 year service award to Russell Robinson.
  • The Gala Dinner Raffle; topped off with the “Millionaire Prize” and cash shower courtesy of Paul Spight.
  • The conclusion of the Silent Auction; where we nearly had to pull out the yellow cards as people protected their bids in the last few minutes.
Besides being an entertaining night, the event raised nearly $6,000 which will go towards further improvements to Oatley FC’s facilities, gear and coaching resources. We sold or raffled off 57 items; congratulations to all the winners, and thank you to everyone who placed a bid or bought a raffle ticket.
