Club celebrates major upgrade

ATHERTON International Club is preparing to celebrate the venue’s major redevelopment in style this Saturday with a Grand Opening event that will showcase what the club has to offer.

Club marketing and administration officer Tash Greskie is excited about the grand opening on Saturday.

The event has been planned to celebrate the $3 million makeover the club has had over the past nine months, transforming it into an expansive modern venue that offers patrons comfort, entertainment and great service. 

Starting at 4pm on Saturday, the grand opening will feature a live broadcast by Radio 4AM, then live music from 4.30pm by wellknown performer Mark Burton who will entertain the crowd with his country rock style.

The club is looking to increase its membership through the event, with patrons given an added incentive to join up and be in the running for a $5000 travel voucher which will be drawn at 9pm. 

The voucher will allow the winner to arrange the holiday of their choice with Travel Experience Atherton. But wait there’s more….. the club will be giving away a $5000 travel voucher every Saturday night for the following three weeks! 

The only requirement is that members must be present to claim the prize. Members can get multiple tickets into the competition – every time they visit the club during the week, they get another ticket in that Saturday’s draw. 

With social membership only $7.50 a year, there is no better time to join up. Apart from the holiday voucher, patrons attending the grand opening this Saturday can win great prizes throughout the evening through the Lucky Wheel. 

Every half hour from 4.30pm to 8.30pm, the wheel will be spun and another prize given away. At 5.30pm, the official opening of the club will take place, with president John Wilkinson and Member for Kennedy Bob Katter doing the honours of cutting the ribbon.

From 6pm, free canapes, prepared by Michael’s Cuisine, will start to be served around the venue and given the restaurant’s reputation for fabulous food, these will be a must to experience and will be available right through until 9pm. 

The popular Wolf Lane Distillery will also be on site, offering patrons the chance to try their Grapefruit Spritz or Expresso Martinis. 

Given that patron receives a free drink ticket when they enter the venue, it’s an ideal time to give these a try. From 7pm, Carrizma, who regularly appear at the club, takes to the stage in the function hall and will entertain until late. 

The Atherton International Club grand opening is a celebration of how far this venue has come over the years so take some time out, go along and see what a wonderful venue this is.

The club will be running a special courtesy bus to Tolga and Yungaburra for the event. 

Pick-ups will be from the post office at both Tolga and Yungaburra at 5.30pm and 6pm respectively and returning later in the night. Give the club a call on 4091 4970 to book your spot now.
