2004 MO & ACE Award winning entertainer Adam Scicluna(pictured right) will join Fat Pizza? cult hero Pauly Fenech in hosting a mammoth evening on the Maltese and rugby league calendars when the MRLA present the 2005 Inaugural Miss Malta Knight Pageant in Sydney.
?As a young Maltese-Australian it?s an honour for me to support the Malta Knights at the Miss Malta Knight Pageant?
?it will be a sensational night of great music, laughter and fun and I will be assisting in the presentation and entertainment on the night with the fabulous Paul Fenech (Fat Pizza)?
With twelve fabulous young Maltese-Australian women vying for the inaugural crown of Miss Malta Knight and the grand prize of return airfares to Malta thanks to Breakaway Travel, the Maltese High-Commissioner Mr Ivan Fsadni will also be in attendance along with his entourage of Maltese Consulate state representatives.
Guest speakers including Maltese Iron woman Candice Falzon and rugby league legend Mark Geyer will share a few laughs with the audience before a packed house at St Dominics College on Friday June 10th, with all funds raised on the night helping the Maltese Rugby League Association (MRLA) stage the first ever rugby league game in Malta, with view to a domestic rugby league competition, an event Adam Scicluna is looking forward to being a part of.
?I wish the Malta Knights every success and I look forward to seeing them play in Malta in October? stated the multi-award winning entertainer.
The fundraiser evening will double as an auction with several hot items available including a special piece, ?the greatest rugby league grand final captains? while fully autographed jerseys from the Bulldogs, Parramatta Eels, Newcastle Knights as well as Wigan Warriors will join gloves to champion (PABA & IBF PAN PAC Junior Middleweight Champion) boxer Shannon ?Bulli Blaster? Taylor on a list of auction pieces to go under the hammer by auctioneer and rugby league personality Mr Doug Keen.
With his gloves going under the hammer, boxers Shannon Taylor & up and comer Adam Vella will also take to the stage on the night.
There?s only limited tickets and they are available for the night at $90pp and tables of 12 also vacant and Adam Scicluna is confident a full house will be on hand.
?I believe the Maltese community in Australia is coming of age, it is a community with tremendous pride and history?
