Suit & Tie Thing Social Event
Suit & Tie Thing Social Event21 Jan 2022
On Saturday 20th November, the HKFC Tennis Society hosted a sold-out Black Tie Event in the Happy Valley Suites of the Club. Organised by Michelle Page, 120 adults and junior guests attended the fabulous party and successfully raised money for the charity - Youth Diabetes Action. We all enjoyed the photo booth, great music with DJ Alca, a raffle and prizes, all the while appreciating a delicious 3-course dinner. It was wonderful seeing everyone following the formal dress code, a nice change from our usual sweaty tennis clothes!
The highlight of the evening was definitely the photo booth! The event started at 7pm with a champagne reception and everyone was gathering around the photo booth, taking great photos. Throughout the night, there were loads of chances to win prizes. First off, the mini chandelier lamps on the table were randomly given out to a person on each table to take home - a great way to start the evening. A game of ‘Heads and Tails’ was next; it was great to see everyone in the room having fun and getting involved. Jason Wildman was the first lucky winner on the night.
We had 5 lovely young girls selling raffle tickets, and people didn't hold back in their hope of winning prizes ranging from Afternoon Tea, Buffet Lunch and private tennis lessons to a tennis racquet. Funnily enough, ATA Coach Matt won a private lesson with ATA Coach Dom! A big thank you to the Tennis Society, HKFC F&B Department and Australian Tennis Aces for the prize donations.
Youth Diabetes Action charity delivered a truly touching speech about their background and purpose, and $17,320 was raised on the night!
