The BMD Wynnum Manly Seagulls are closing in on our biggest event for 2022, the Sportsman’s Dinner on Tuesday 9th of August.
This major event helps to fundraise for the Seagulls Foundation, which supports player welfare, junior development through the McDonald’s Seagulls Academy, and infrastructure improvements at BMD Kougari Oval.
Wayne Bennett will headline a blockbuster night of entertainment, where he chats one-on-one with MC Pat Welsh before he starts the Redcliffe Dolphins head coach role in 2023.
Joining Wayne on stage will be QLD State of Origin legend, Shane Webcke. We look forward to hearing from Shane about playing at NRL and representative level, as well as some behind-the-scenes stories while being coached by Wayne for so long.
Greg Ritchie, former Australian Test cricketer turned comedian, will also perform on the night, and based on previous reviews, there will be tears of laughter across the room.
In between our special guest appearances, there will be a live auction for 4 incredible items with outstanding value.
Additionally, a major raffle will be held across the evening with the grand prize of a 7-night trip to Fiji + $2500 Helloworld flight voucher being handed to one lucky winner.
And just when you thought it couldn’t get any better, a silent auction containing 40 memorable items will run throughout the night with participants able to text through their bids from the comfort of their seats.
All funds raised will go straight to the Seagulls Foundation and are incredibly important for the success of the BMD Wynnum Manly Seagulls both on and off the field.
There are a few tickets left for this event which can be purchased here: www.wynnumseagulls.com.au
The Seagulls would like to thank BMD as our Principal sponsor, Premier Partner Bartons Motor Group, and all Seagulls sponsors that will contribute to the night by attending or donating a prize.
We are looking forward to a big one on Tuesday night!
