The Mullumbimby Giants will be hosting their major fundraising event for the year this Friday night, which includes a line-up of A-list speakers including world champion surfer Layne Beachley and Australian league player Chris Johns.
‘Chris also played for the Broncos and helped get the Melbourne Storm going, he was their first CEO,’ club member Mel McKenzie said.
Other speakers on the night include former Queensland netballer and Firebirds player Katie Walker and former Australian cricket captain Jodie Fields who retired with a test average of 66.
‘All up we have some pretty awesome past athletes and inspirational speakers. It will be an awesome night,’ she said.
The night will also include music and auctions. All the fun this Friday March 29 at the Mullumbimby Leagues Club from 5.30pm. Tickets need to be pre-purchased at Mullum Newsagency or Stewarts Mensware.
After the party the Giants first-grade team will be looking to collect their first win for the season after losing to Casino, playing away last weekend.
In a close game played in hot conditions the Mullumbimby side lost 24-18.
The Reserves also lost 26-12, but the women’s tag team won 16-0.
This weekend the Giants travel to New Park to take on the Kyogle Turkeys.
The Giants first home game at Les Donnelly Field is not until round four against the Tweed Coast on Sunday April 28.
