Sau-vic Gala Ball - Sat 3rd Oct


Recommended Posts

Hello everyone.

Some of you might be aware that SAU-Vic is coming into its 5th Anniversary as a formal club.

To celebrate this tremendous milestone in the clubs history, the Committee has decided to have a lavish Gala Ball to mark the occasion!

There is limited tickets avaliable as per below, so do not dither about deciding on coming to this signifigant event.

We have lined up a guest speaker to come along for the night, that person is Dean Canto.

Dean has been highly involved with V8 Supercars and all forms of motorsport since the 1990's so no doubt has a few interesting things to chat to people about!

Dean's website (if you wanna see some more info) www.canto.com.au

The event also has another meaning, all proceeds from the night will be going to charity. There will be a raffle pricing somewhere between $10 and $20 a ticket.

Various prizes are being organise so rest assured there is something of value there, but more importantly the money goes to help those in need.

The Charity is: The Princess Charlotte Alopecia Foundation www.princesscharlottealopecia.com

Dean is an Ambassador for this charity, please take the time to have a read about Alopecia as one day you might be affected or know someone who is.

Hrm… whats missing… Oh ye - the details :)

Discount Accomodation @ the Marriott

As the Marriott is also a Hotel, they have lots of rooms (yes, a surprise I know)… I am currently in negotiation of a deal for discount Hotel rooms for us.

I wont have an answer until late next week. I will update once I deal is struck of course, so keep that in mind.

You can turn a wonderful night into a magical night with someone special :(

Any questions and so on, please post up here and I will endeavour to answer it (or find out)!



President, SAU-Vic

Accomodation Information.

The Marriott are offering us an accomodation deal as well for those that might be interested.

You need to organise this yourself however, this is independant of the club. We simply organised the deal :down:

A picture is attached to this post, as you can see, its pretty awesome!

Pricing/Room info:

Premier Room - One Night.

$200 - no breakfast (RRP normally $270)

$250 - incl full breakfast x2 (RRP normally $309)

Contact:Marriott Reservations - 9662 3900

Please specify the "SAU Event - Skyline Australia" when making your booking to get the above pricing discounts.

This is a pretty good deal, $70 off just for the night (25% off), so if your thinking of turning a great night into a magical night - a room @ the Marriott will go nicely :/
