EVENT: ABA Celebrates Christmas in Style
Date: 16th December, 2014 Time: 06:00 pm - 09:30 pm
More than 80 ABA members and friends entered into the festive spirit at the Association's Christmas Party on 16 December. The event was held in rooms at the Arab British Chamber of Commerce Building in Mayfair. Guests were entertained by musicians playing a variety of Christmas music and jazz variations.
The ABA is grateful to National Bank of Egypt for its sponsorship of the Party and to a variety of local traders and friends who provided gifts for the raffle.
The Christmas Party is the last of the ABA's three social events for 2014. Earlier this year we held an Iftar, and last month we held our Annual Gala Dinner. We also held five seminars on banking and financial subjects and a book signing.
A selection of photographs from the event is attached below.
