What an amazing day, check out the 2015 VAV Photos!
THE VAV EVENT was successful beyond our expectations. We estimated 10 teams but ended up having 15 teams making up approximately 80 players on the day. We had a lot of positive feedback from players who thoroughly enjoyed themselves and would like to see another event.
We had 15 sponsors who donated $1500 to Chrysalis and a myriad of prizes and free giveaways.
As an organiser it was fantastic to see so many people volunteer to help run the event. Everyone was happy to help out and we had an organisational team of 20 or more people on the day.
The event achieved its two primary goals which were to raise awareness about domestic violence and bring the community together have fun!
It’s an event that will undoubtedly be bigger and better next year.
