ANZAC Day Gala Ball
The opportunity to acknowledge ANZAC Day here in the UAE is one we embrace at AusBG and we were honoured to hold our annual ANZAC Day Gala Ball on Thursday 25 April 2019 at the Ritz-Carlton Grand Canal, Abu Dhabi.
AusBG was delighted to welcome over 250 members of the Australian community including the Ambassadors of Australia and New Zealand, VIP's and distinguished guests. Thank you to Commodore Mark Hill who generously took the time to be our guest speaker at the event.
Our Australian themed menu, featuring Aussie beef, was perfectly paired with Western Australia's very own Madfish wine. Our specially selected Land Down Under playlist topped off a sensational evening shared with friends and colleagues. We look forward to enjoying it all again next year.
We would like to thank our amazing sponsors and supporters, without them and their support events like our ANZAC Gala Ball are just not possible.
Etihad Airways provided us with two return tickets to Australia for use in the silent auction and raffle. The Captain's Club donated a 12 month Pearl membership for live auction as well as two raffle prizes and our sponsor Spinneys Liquor continued their ongoing support assisting with beverages for the evening and working with Madfish Wines. Those of us who were still on the dance floor late into the evening were treated to some Aussie pies and mini quiches courtesy of Springbok Butchery.
AusBG would like to extend their gratitude for the generosity of ATS and Polytronic for their purchase of the RSL poppies and Legacy pins that were gifted to guests on the evening.
Thank you again to all of those who attended the event and to our sponsors and supporters.
