Last Friday the Riders of Team Shadforth Financial Group held their first Footy Focus Lunch to raise funds for the 2012 Hawaiian Ride for Youth. The lunch was a great success with the guys already raising over $15,500 at a sit down lunch held at Leederville Oval.
Guests at this unique event were kept entertained by special guest MC Simon Beaumont from 6PR and the special guest speakers Trevor Nisbett (CEO, West Coast Eagles) and Chris Bond (Football Manager, Fremantle Dockers). Trevor and Chris discussed a range of topics including the draft and trade process and outcomes; next season's expectations; who's hot and who's not; and footy as a game and a business. The 130+ crowd were given an exclusive insight in to the running of the State’s two major football teams and were also given the opportunity to question both administrators.
In keeping with the football theme of the day MC Simon Beaumont also played some exclusive footage of Team Shadforth’s Captain Mick Lee back in his heyday as a star player for Subiaco Football Club.
Be sure to keep checking the Hawaiian Ride for Youth website for information on all upcoming Rider events, there have already been some great ones held and some fantastic ones coming soon.
