The Sydney Stingers water polo club have announced that Aussie Boys will help sponsor their trip to the Gay Games in Cologne this August.
Owner of the iconic Oxford St store, Ken Holmes signed a 12-month sponsorship agreement with options to extend.
“We wanted to see if the community would support the team and knowing what a major event the Gay Games has become, we thought this could be an ideal opportunity to partner with Aussie Boys,” Sydney Stingers spokesman Stuart Bruce said.
“Aussie Boys will provide clothing — a full team strip for the Sydney Stingers to wear for the water polo metropolitan domestic league and the Cologne games in 2010. In the past this is something team members have provided at their own cost.”
Aussie Boys will also provide water polo equipment, engage suppliers and seek their support, and allow for and coordinate in-store fundraising activities during the lead-up to Cologne.
In the meantime, the Sydney Stingers hope to increase community awareness of the club and seek ongoing support where possible.
