25th Anniversary Celebrations

IC Silver and Black Gala

The International Recreation Club celebrated its 25th anniversary in grand style, with the Silver and Black Gala Dinner, held on January 16th, 2015. 

Some 250 members and dignitaries enjoyed the black tie event, which was MC'd by local comedian Naveed Mahbub. Beginning with a poolside cocktail reception, followed by a welcome speech by Club President Mr. Tullio Ferri, guests were then given a brief history of the Club by Vice-President Mr. Kareem Din. Mr. Din also payed respect to the former presidents, committee members and the long-serving staff who, together, have made the Club what it is today.

A four course dinner followed, with musical entertainment by Goan band The Syndicate. A raffle draw was held, and the top prize of a return, business ticket to anywhere on the Etihad network, was won by long-term members of the Club, Tanuza and Guillaume.

The Executive Committee would like to thank all who took part in the event, including the members, organizers, sponsors and staff. Here's to another 25 years!
