AAAB Events

AAAB organises a number of high profile community events each year which offers great opportunities for corporates to promote their brands the fast growing culturally diverse communities in Sydney’s North West. 

Harmony Soccer Cup

AAAB’s premier event and Bennelong electorate’s largest community based soccer tournament.  

The tournament initially began in 2013 to raise money for the family of a NSW police officer who passed away leaving four young children.  AAAB organised the inaugural match between the Chinese Soccer Association and Ryde Police.  By 2016, the tournament has become an annual event and has grown to include teams from City of Ryde, Ryde Police, Chinese Soccer Association, Korean Soccer Association, Medibank, Commonwealth Bank and United Community Cultural Centre.  The event is an outstanding example of the cooperation and harmony between our diverse cultural communities. 

The next match will be held on Saturday 25 March 2017 at Eastwood Oval and is expected to attract even more teams, 300+ attendees and spectators.

 

Grandparents Day Afternoon Tea

 

AAAB is an event partner of NSW Grandparents Day, an initiative of the NSW Department of Family and Community Services.  The event is celebrated in October annually.  In 2016, AAAB hosted an afternoon tea for over 150 multicultural seniors at the Eastwood Taiwan Market area where they enjoyed cultural performances, games and raffle draws.  Participating community groups included Eastwood Chinese Senior Citizens Club, Eastwood Croquet Club, Ryde SES, Indonesian Welfare Association, Sydney Korean Women Association, Feng Hua Chinese School, Italian Women of Marsfield, Tzu Chi Australia – a truly diverse gathering!
