Lara Giants 25th Birthday Dinner
The year was 1992, Paul Keating was Prime Minister of Australia, the very first Big Day Out concert was being held & West Coast defeated Geelong in the Grand Final. It was also the start of a little basketball club know as the Lara Giants. A club that has since continued to grow to be one of the biggest in Geelong with 40 teams and over active 300 members.
On Saturday June 17 2017 from 6:30pm we are celebrating 25 years of the Lara Giants at the Lara Hotel. This is sure to be a great night out with a two course meal, consisting of a entree & a main. From 9pm we will be entertained & have the option of hitting the dance floor or reliving some of the good times. All for the cost of $40 per head. Of course, drinks will be available at bar prices & Bookings are essential as seats are strictly limited & will sell out.
So gather your current team or your old team, prepare your stories of the time you hit the match winner on the buzzer & set yourself for a great night out. There will also be a couple of special presentations.
