As mentioned previously, Manly Sailing has a new owner Finn Irvine, since the beginning of this year. Therefore, we wanted to celebrate this occasion as well as all the developments and improvements that we have done with Manly Sailing throughout the year, as well as celebrating some exciting things that are yet to come.
We invited families, friends as well as suppliers to us here at Manly Sailing on Monday 17thof September to celebrate our launch and it was a wonderful afternoon. The event started at 4pm and the guests enjoyed an hour of mingle with celebratory drinks and BBQ as well as yummy cheese platters from the Artisan Cheese Room. Our launch was mainly upstairs at Manly Yacht Club’s balcony where guests enjoyed the afternoon sun and a beautiful sunset. In addition, we opened up our office and our additional space downstairs so that guests could see all the changes that we have made with their own eyes and I personally heard more than one WOW!
After the mingle, the guests enjoyed a welcoming and enlightening speech by the owner Finn Irvine himself. We would also like to thank James Griffin who is representing Manly in the NSW Parliament for his encouraging speech, thank you.
We would also like to thank the Artisan Cheese Room again for their Hamper prize among two other prizes that we had as we encouraged guests to purchase raffle tickets for the chance to win amazing prizes, but most of all, to support Soldier On and Bear Cottage. We collected $440 in total from these raffle tickets and as promised everything will be donated equally to Soldier On and Bear Cottage and we wish both of these organisations the best.
We appreciate that you all came as we had the chance to chat with you all and hopefully you made some good connections too. We really enjoyed meeting you all and we are looking forward to seeing you around this upcoming season.
