SPORTSMAN’s DAY LUNCH:In September 2015, Emu Plains Glenmore Park Lions Junior AFL club will be having our second Sportsman's lunch to raise money for our club and more importantly The Ronald McDonald Family Room located in the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit at Nepean hospital.  The lunch is going to be a club and charity fundraiser. We are hoping to exceed our donation of $16,000 from 2013 and raise over $25,000 for the Ronald McDonald Family Room.  One of our aims and core values of our club is to give back to the community so we are going to be giving most of the money raised to the Ronald McDonald Nepean Family Room. The room provides a ‘home away from home’ for families with children undergoing medical treatment in the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit at Nepean Hospital.

 

The day will be hosted by Fox Sports Andrew Voss and we will be joined by some great guest speakers on the day.  

 

We have a great day planned and spots are limited so please get on board and purchase your tickets as soon as possible.
