The day of the highly anticipated Forbes Rugby Club President’s Lunch has finally arrived with the annual event taking place this Saturday afternoon at the Grinstead Oval.
Once again the occasion has attracted a record number of interest, with well over 1,000 people expected to attend.
Chris Sweeney, Committee Chair of Forbes Rugby Club President’s Lunch said:
“We’ve cracked the 1,000 mark with tickets sold out in approximately four weeks. The event is so popular because it brings together club and community to celebrate the start of the rugby season.”
“Members of the community and many people from far and wide get together to attend an event that provides an opportunity for conversations, chats and camaraderie, especially in tough times so that you don’t have to look at those dry paddocks,” said Chris.
The President’s Lunch is the rugby club’s major fundraiser, with a variety of community groups benefiting from the proceeds each year.
This year’s President’s Lunch will take place in an even more magical setting with the new fence that’s been put up around the oval by farmer tradespeople, which was partially funded by the Forbes Rugby Club.
The lunch will see the return of the Peter Murphy Foundation, which supports locals in need as well as an astounding line-up of auction items for the afternoon.
Special guest for this year and supplying the afternoon’s entertainment will be Vietnamese- born Australian renowned author, comedian and artist, Anh Do.
