And then we turned nine


Last Thursday was truly remarkable - thank you to everyone who partied with us for our 9th birthday in North Sydney.


We took over Greenwood Hotel’s Chapel Room, celebrating our milestone with over 120 of you.

Door prizes, great music courtesy of our superb DJ Thomas Knight, bountiful food and plenty of happy faces: Thursday night was magnificent.

Winner winner, chicken dinner


On the night of our 9th we also held a competition, encouraging attendees to snap, tag and share images from our birthday.


To everyone who posted a photo or video and tagged either the Gig Buddies Sydney Facebook or Instagram accounts, thank you.


Your names have gone into the hat to win a DOUBLE PASS to our CHRISTMAS PARTY.


The draw will take place this Friday (10/5) and the winner will be announced in next Monday’s newsletter.

 

Vroom, vroom, vroooooom


And those who attended our birthday had the chance to cast their ballot and name our new car.


After tallying up the votes, the winner is…….. Gigi!

Despite a late and somewhat very suspicious run from the ‘wee baby Sheamus’, Gigi took the honours, pipping Bella in our poll.

And it's been a busy few days for the latest addition to the office. Not only has Gigi travelled around Sydney and the Central Coast, she’s also found time to create an Instagram account!


You can follow Gigi by clicking here.

 

Each and every month we invite buddies to connect with us for our online chats.

Our chats take place via Zoom. To attend get in touch via text: 0422 061 990 or Facebook Messenger.
