With 50+ ladies in attendance they were treated to gourmet chicken and champagne luncheon, were entertained by musician Nathan Lippiat and we able to browse and participate in a number of stalls set up on the day.
It was a well organised event and great set up and Coburg FC General Manager Craig Lees echoed those remarks in an email to the club. It was also great to have the support of our VFL team who dropped down on the day after their morning recovery session.

As a final note. It hits close to home when we hear that one of own is affected by a form of cancer. The Nephew of one of our Sponsors Electech Australia Pty Ltd has been diagnosed with a rare form of bone cancer called Ewings-Sarcoma. His name is Lorenzo Santalucia and he is just 9 years old.
Michelle also organised a bucket collection on the day for the young boy who is a beloved supporter of Geelong Football Club and we also thank everyone who donated.
We will also be running further fundraising to help this little fella get the necessary treatment. Our club has already demonstrated its commitment to these causes so we will be asking you to dig deep again to help over the next few weeks.
