XC Towards 2018 Cocktail Party – September 18

On Thursday September 18 the Ski & Snowboard Australia Cross Country Committee invites you to a Cocktail Party in Armadale in Melbourne. The evening will be a celebration of Australian cross country ski racing, featuring athletes and images from the Sochi 2014 Winter Olympics and Australian Cross Country Ski Team.  A range of goods, services and other offers will be also available at a silent auction, with all proceeds going to the XC Towards 2018 fundraising project.

Tickets are available via the Try Booking website.  Click on the image below for more details.

XC Towards 2018 (formerly Towards 2014, Towards 2010 and Towards 2006) is the fundraising umbrella for the National Team, which in 2013 raised over $25,000 towards athlete expenses overseas. Nearly $10,000 of this was generated at the Cocktail Party last October. For the 2014/2015 season Australian athletes will be competing at the 2015 World Championship in Falun, Sweden, the 2015 World Junior/U23 Championship in Almaty, Kazakhstan, the 2015 World University Winter Games in Strbske Pleso, Slovakia, and on the 2014/2015 FIS World Cup circuit.  With most athletes needing to raise $6,000-$8,000 each in order to prepare for and compete at these events, every donation counts. Donations can also be made directly via the SSA website.

Join the Australian Team athletes and other members of the skiing community in celebrating Australian cross country ski racing!
