The Big Aussie Sports Day & BBQ

On Saturday, August 7 2021, over 420 keen picnickers gathered in Prospect Park on a beautiful sunny afternoon. Friends and families lay down their picnic blankets and settled in for a healthy dose of community spirit and good Aussie fun!

We were joined by two AAA Scholars, Olivia Chindamo and Camilla Caldwell, who performed acoustic pop-up sets throughout the afternoon. The white bread-onion-tomato sauce snag was the talk of the park (most went back for seconds!); a dry Weetbix eating competition and Australian thong toss prompted some good-spirited competition; and no smiles were quite as big as the ones on the faces of our lucky raffle winners.

This event would not be possible without our partner organizations; America Josh, Australian Women In New York, Advance and Sponsors, Cigna Global and OFX. We would like to thank all the businesses who generously donated to the raffle; Boomerang Bites, Bourke Street Bakery, Dinkum, Starward, Treats From Oz, Tribal Towels, Uplift Food and You Are What You Sleep.

Thank you to everyone who came out to make the event a success!
