Queensland Annual Lunch
Qld lunch celebrates Winx, Origin miracle and more
It has become a ‘must-attend’ for Brisbane business people who love their sport and it’s looking like this year’s Men of League Foundation Queensland annual lunch is set to live up to tradition and be a spectacularly entertaining event.
The 15th Queensland annual lunch on 6 September will be compered by former Queensland Test batsman and corporate funnyman Greg ‘Fat Cat’ Ritchie, who stole the show with his brief but hilarious speaking stint last year.
The 800-plus who attend the RNA Convention Centre event will enjoy the theme of the day which is ‘great sporting moments’. And there will be plenty of sports stars who were involved in great moments to share their memories.
Channel 9’s James Bracey interview an illustrious panel of Queensland State of Origin heroes who will take the audience’s minds back to 1994 and the classic match-winning try at the Sydney Football Stadium that Nine’s “voice of rugby league” Ray Warren describes aptly with: “That’s not a try; that’s a miracle.”
Veteran sporting scribe and long-time Australian Olympic swimmers’ media confidante Ian Hanson will interview an incredible panel of guests in part-owner of the champion mare Winx, Peter Tighe, two-time premiership-winning Brisbane Lions player Tim Notting and his wife Jodie Henry, who happens to be a triple gold medal-winning freestyle swimmer at the 2004 Olympic Games in Athens.
