Cricket Match Connects Fayette Business and Community

Friday, April 17th, 2015

WEATHER POSTPONEMENT:  Now scheduled for Saturday, May 2, 2015

Employees from Panasonic Automotive Systems Company of America and Aventure Aviation will face off in Fayette County’s first cricket match Saturday, April 25 at Riley Field in Peachtree City.  Team Panasonic will square off with Team Aventure Aviation starting at 10 a.m.  The match is free and the public is invited.

The idea for the match was born from a meeting hosted at the Fayette Chamber of Commerce in late 2014. Panasonic executives contacted the Fayette Chamber in fall of 2014 hoping to find ways to help employees and their families who recently moved here from South Asia assimilate and feel more connected to the community. Panasonic has approximately 300 employees from South Asia.

The Chamber reached out to several member businesses, including Aventure Aviation, and invited their employees of South Asian descent to gather together and share needs, challenges and commonalities. One idea from that gathering was to bring the much-beloved sport of cricket to the community and invite all local residents to attend the match.

“The ultimate intention of this cricket match is to have a ‘family fun day’,” said Zaheer Faruqi, President & CEO of Aventure Aviation. “We see this event as a way to bring these employees together and allow them to connect with one another other. At the same time, they can share their love of this sport with the rest of the Fayette community.”

Adalene Holley, membership development manager for the Fayette Chamber of Commerce stated, “When the Chamber helped this group gather together for the first time, it was immediately apparent that all have a heritage and culture important to each of us.” Holley continued, “Traditions are supported with access to ethnic foods, sporting events, cultural and faith-based celebrations that make us feel at home, no matter where we live and work.”

Holley noted that while the April cricket match will mark a first connection point for these employees from India, this initiative will surely blossom into other areas and among other cultures that are active in Fayette County.

“Awareness and familiarity of other cultures is where understanding begins,” said Holley. “As we discover more about one another, we come together as a community.  I love that this is a priority for Panasonic Automotive and appreciate Aventure’s leadership bringing it to fruition.”

Panasonic and Aventure Aviation Face Off in a Cricket Match!

WEATHER POSTPONEMENT:  Now scheduled for Saturday, May 2, 2015

Employees from Panasonic Automotive Systems Company of America and Aventure Aviation will face off in a Fayette County Cricket Match to be played on Saturday, April 25 at Riley Field in Peachtree City.  The idea for the match was born from a meeting hosted at the Fayette Chamber of Commerce in late 2014.

Panasonic executives contacted the Fayette Chamber hoping to find ways to help employees, who recently moved here from India, assimilate themselves and their families to their new lives in Fayette County.  Panasonic has approximately 300 employees from India, alone.  So, the Chamber reached out to several member businesses, including Aventure Aviation, and invited their employees of Indian descent to gather together and share needs, challenges and commonalities.

At the meeting, many topics and ideas were discussed that could help these employees feel more at home and connected to their new community.  One idea  was to bring the much beloved sport of cricket to the community and a match was quickly organized.  In addition to the employees and their families, all Fayette residents are invited to attend and enjoy this international sporting event.

“The ultimate intention of this cricket match is to have a ‘family fun day’,” said Zaheer Faruqi, President & CEO of Aventure Aviation and attendee of the initial gathering at the Chamber.  “Ultimately we see this as a way to bring this community together and allow them to connect with one another other, while enjoying a pastime that they already know and love.”

“Awareness and familiarity of other cultures is where understanding begins.  If we discover more about each other, we come together as a community, so I love that this is a priority for Panasonic Automotive.  When we got together for the initial meeting, I learned that the basic pieces to fulfill are just like the cultural backgrounds I have experienced:  access to ethnic food, sports and cultural/faith-based celebrations!  So while we connect using cricket at this point, there is no telling how this initiative can blossom within other areas and among other cultures.   ” , said Adalene Holley of the Fayette Chamber of Commerce.

In this first ever Fayette County cricket match, a team of employees from Panasonic will square off with a team from Aventure Aviation between 10 a.m. and 5 p.m.  The match is free to attend and everyone is invited.   Players, fans and spectators are encouraged to bring a pot luck lunch that can be shared during the lunch break to encourage networking and socializing.
