Vaughan Soccer Club's year-end REP Banquet is one of the loudest and best banquets to attend! The party shook the banquet hall floor to the late hours of the night, it was a good time for all! A long tradition of Vaughan Soccer, this banquet celebration is a great way to get everyone together, one last time... Due to our increasing popularity/membership numbers, we celebrate the end of the outdoor season with 2 banquets. The year-end-banquet for youth born 2004 and older was held on September 9th. Exactly one week later, on Friday September16th the final banquet celebration was held for the 2005 and younger age groups. This year's REP/Competitive Banquet parties rocked and shook the dance floor - literrally!!! ...and with Veriation Music creating an event atmosphere like no other, the evening started with the perfect music for our members, who were dancing and celebrating with delight. A special thank-you to Riviera Parque Banquet Hall for creating a magnificent first-class environment providing high quality service and a memorable experience for all.
In attendance at Vaughan Soccer’s year-end-celebration were Vaughan Soccer's Board of Directors, Staff, VSC's technical leaders, and several City of Vaughan Council members. Just before dinner was served, Mayor Maurizio Bevelacqua took centre stage and announced his special contribution of $2500 to ALS Canada in honour of previous Vaughan Soccer Club president Danny Pellegrini. Accepting the generous donation was wife Barbara, and daughter Sarah Pellegrini. This is the second year in a row, where the Mayor lead and encouraged our members to support the cause and remember Danny’s contribution to the club and community. One week later, at the 2nd banquet we had Councillor Marilyn Iafrate, Regional Councillor Gino Rosati, Regional Councillor Mario Ferri, and Regional Councillor Michael Di Biase who joined us. This time Councillor Marilyn Iafrate took the stage with a progress report and announced that the City of Vaughan was working on providing our community with additional turf soccer fields - more news coming soon... stay tuned!
At our September 16th banquet, the younger members were served with 'an appetizer' before dinner was served: all our members were dazzled by the 'mad soccer skills' on display by MadSkills!
Their ability to manipulate the beautiful ball was breath taking and inspiring to our audience! Special thanks to Photolific for supplying the amazing pictures! What about you, do you have asome pictures you wish to share? Whynot share them with us on social media [#vaughansoccercl]:
The night was a busy one! Our youth were everywhere, after receiving their end-of-season trophies, finishing their the dinner meal, the dancing and partying was sure to follow. Having fun in a safe environment, Vaughan Soccer's year end celebration is a perfect way to bring the summer to an official end! We thank all the REP/Competitive teams for their support. The countless hours our members put in, the support they provide their kids, and extended family... Our club is driven by volunteers that put in their time day in, day out!!!
