Our 49th Annual Dinner and Dance was held on Saturday 19 November 2022 at our favourite venue, St. James’ Court hotel, after an absence of three years due to Covid restrictions. This black-tie event speckled with club blazers was attended by some 60 members and guests, albeit down from previous years, but we were glad to be back.
An all-inclusive ticket provided pre-dinner drinks, an excellent Indian plated meal and dancing to a disco rhythm. It was good to see so many regular supporters many of whom we had not seen for some time, and it made for such a warm and pleasant evening.
As we sat down for dinner Sunil welcomed the guests, including Ethan Youel from Diageo our sponsors. After the superb meal San conducted the traditional presentations of the silverware to the season’s prize-winners. Amidst warm applause Ravi Kannan and Chetan Singh were each awarded the Maroon Jacket for their lifetime dedication to the Club and received the Adelaide Cup donated by the Eighties batch of Aussies, and now sponsored by Johnnie Walker. Ethan also rewarded each Achiever with an inscribed bottle of Blue Label whisky.
The raffle proved to be a tremendous success. The whole event was captured on camera (see a selection of photos under KCC Dinner – 2022 in the GALLERY).
Finally, we thank all those who attended for their unstinting support and for making the event such a memorable occasion. So on to our 50th year celebrations in 2023.
