Official Supporters Club raise £20k for CITC through Annual Dinner

Pablo Zabaleta was the guest of honour as our Official Supporters Club gathered for their annual celebration at the Etihad Stadium earlier this month.

The dinner, held on 7 October and attended by more than 400 people, is the marquee fundraising event for all branches of our Official Supporters Club with all proceeds going to City in the Community.

A total of £20,000 was raised through ticket sales, raffle tickets, a live auction and a donation of £3,000 by the Norway and Denmark Official Supporters Club.

That money will now be used to fund the activities of City in the Community in Manchester and further afield.

Some incredible items were up for grabs in both the raffle and the auction, including an opportunity to dine in the dressing room, a framed and signed Erling Haaland shirt and tickets in the Tunnel Club for the Southampton match taking place the next day!

Attended by City executives and former players, there was plenty to keep fans entertained.

The main event on the night was a Q&A session with City legend Zabaleta.

Hosted by City Square presenter Danny Jackson, the former full-back talked through his career and love of City before breaking out into his chant still sung in the stands at the Etihad Stadium to this day.

Nedum Onuoha, another well-loved former player and now on the Board of Trustees with City in the Community, spoke of the work undertaken by the Club's charitable arm.

Kevin Parker, General Secretary of the Official Supporters Club said: "It was another fantastic evening at The Etihad. Not watching our amazing team this time but helping to raise funds for CITC.

"Many thanks to all those who attended and contributed so generously on the night either through the auction, raffle or their donation through the cost of their ticket.

"Particular thanks once again to Christine Wardle our Social Secretary for her brilliant work in planning everything."
