Club Five Dock RSL’s Annual Presidents Black Tie Dinner raises over $61,000 for The Sydney Invictus Games.
The 2018 President’s Black-Tie Dinner was held on Friday, 7th September 2018 with the beneficiaries being ‘The Sydney Invictus Games’. The word ‘Invictus’ is Latin for ‘unconquered’ and embodies the fighting spirit of our wounded, injured and ill servicemen and women.
Club Five Dock RSL is excited to announce that the night was a huge success, raising over $61,000.
Club Five Dock RSL, in partnership with Five Dock RSL Sub Branch achieved this great result through the generosity and support from our community.
When Club Five Dock RSL announced the Club Grants donation of $25,000, Five Dock RSL Sub-Branch surprised everybody on the night by matching the $25,000. The rest of the funds were raised through ticket sales and raffles.
The room looked fantastic with the Black and Gold theme matching the Invictus colours. Head Chef, Jeffrey Huang presented a delightful 3 course menu that had everybody talking while guests were entertained with great hits performed by Uptown Funk.
President of Club Five Dock RSL and Five Dock RSL Sub-Branch, Robert Ridge was delighted with the result and pledged to continue to support Invictus and veterans.
A big thank you to our community partners City of Canada Bay Council, ClubsNSW, Sub-Branches of the Western Metropolitan District, surrounding Club support and Club members who attended on the night as well as suppliers donating stock on the night.
