On Saturday June 3rd, there will be an Avalon fundraising night for their W16 team, who are touring Vanuatu to highlight local women’s football, assist in the cyclone recovery effort and provide charitable donations.
Avalon Soccer Club’s annual tour to Vanuatu started in 2012 as a mission to promote women’s sport on the islands, with the tour running successfully for eight seasons before COVID unfortunately brought it to a halt. The Avalon W16 team are now re-establishing this wonderful initiative and the 2023 tour starts on June 30th. They will play a number of matches – including two against the Vanuatu Under-16 national team – plus coaching clinics, school visits and donation deliveries.
Avalon’s fundraising night has a Tropical Party theme and will take place at Avalon Surf Club, from 7pm – 11pm. Entry includes free food from Alfonso Pizza and Paella, live music from local bands, a DJ, a lucky door prize, a free welcome drink and a very special football panel being assembled for the evening! There will also be an online raffle with $5,000 worth of prizes available.
Tickets are now on sale, so click the below link to be involved in this special night! All funds raised will be used to deliver donations, contribute to cyclone recovery and fund community projects on the islands.
Meanwhile, tickets for the $5,000 online raffle can be bought by clicking below – winners will be drawn on the night.
