Echuca-Moama Biggest Blokes Lunch will be in a new location this year, having outgrown the Echuca Harness Racing Club’s pavilion.TRENT HORNEMAN August 15, 2014 3:48am
Echuca-Moama’s Biggest Blokes Lunch has a new home.
Dungala Centre at Moama on Murray Resort will host up to 400 blokes for an afternoon of beers, bites and banter to raise money and awareness of the Prostate Cancer Foundation Australia.
After two packed years at Echuca Harness Racing Club’s pavilion organiser Garet Stobaus said the time was right to make the move.
‘‘Owner Anthony Stevens has done us a great deal and it is a great setting to host the event,’’ he said.
Last year more than 300 attended the event, raising $50,000 for PCFA, with the inaugural event in 2012 raising $40,000.
Crowd favourite and former Australian fast bowler Damien Fleming will be back to entertain the crowd, along with former Test batsman and current Big Bash star Brad Hodge and former Deniliquin footballer, Test cricketer, TV personality and racehorse owner Simon O’Donnell.
Blokes attending will be able to bid on a range of items, with all money going to the prostate cancer charity.
Items for auction include a three-day Darwin fishing package, two two-day corporate hospitality passes to V8 Supercars at Phillip Island, a six-course meal (with drinks) for 10 at Oscar W’s at the American Hotel, a cricket bat signed by Test great Matthew Hayden, a signed copy of Damien Fleming’s book Bowlologist, a marquee for 10 at March’s Echuca Cup, motorsport memorabilia and hospitality and dining packages.
There are six tables of 10 left for this year’s blokes lunch on Friday, October 10.
Tables are $1200 but single tickets can be arranged.
