Byron local Pat Rafter

Pat Rafter and Gold Coast Suns head coach Andrew Raines joined up to 70 people at a fundraiser for the Byron Bay’s junior AFL team last Friday.

MC for the night Shaun Rehn was able to get some insightful and very funny stories out of the well-known former world number one tennis player Pat Rafter, who bought a property at Broken Head last year, co-organiser Cindy Peterson said.

The event was a great success and would go a long way to helping more than 100 juniors who play for the Byron Magpies, she said.

The Junior Magpies annual fundraiser was held at The Beach and included an auction.
