Team Sydney hosted a dinner on May 27 that was meant to be the launch for Paris 2018. However, out of respect for some athletes and their situation in Miami Team Sydney kept this event low-key and offered to do another event later in the year.
On Aug 27 we will be back at Claire’s Kitchen (thanks Marc) with a night of great French music, food and great speakers.
Following on from May 27 where Matt Mitcham MC’d and Michelle Ferris and Caroline Layt gave great speeches, I am very happy to announce we have secured more amazing speakers including Kristen Worley (a Transgender athlete taking on the might of the International Olympic Committee) and Christina Horatiopoulos (Tennis Pro and French Open player). In addition, Abbas from Precision Apparel Services will be presenting sports uniform designs for Paris, and Reece Farmilo from OutAndAboutTravel will be announcing travel packages and plans for Paris 2018.
We will also be launching our major fund raising raffle for 2017/2018 being ‘All things French; plus some Aussie’. We have great prizes including
- return flights and package to Paris for a lucky winner courtesy of OutandAbout Travel
- language classes courtesy of our new Sponsor and Supporter Alliance Francaise Sydney – (AFS)
- a dinner voucher from Claire’s Kitchen and
- a six pack of premium Taylors wine from our Sponsors and Supporters GodfreyPembroke and AJB Insurance.
With a bit of luck I might also have some major announcements on the night.
Dinner includes bubbles on arrival, 3 course French dinner with table wine, French music thanks to French Music Trio and fabulous guest speakers and presenters.
President, Team Sydney
