The 18th AFL Western Derby Breakfast was held in the Riverview Room at Optus Stadium on July 4. Once again the fantastic Mr Trevor Jenkins hosted the event and panellists included WCE Senior Coach Adam Simpson and FFC Senior Coach Ross Lyon. Shannon Hurn and Michael Walters also attended and were interviewed by Trevor, as was Kara Donnellan the FFC AFLW Captain. Guests also heard from SAS Resources Fund Chairman Mr Greg Solomon and the Commanding Officer of the SAS Regiment.
This year guests were able to participate in a raffle, which included a return trip for two flying Qantas and staying two nights at the Mantaray Ningaloo Beach Resort – congratulations to the very lucky winner! Auction items included Eagles and Dockers VIP game day packages as well as signed and framed Guernseys. The silent auction item was a Burley Sekem football signed by the Eagles and Docker’s senior coaches.
Once again our thanks go to our supporters, including the Hon Liza Harvey and the West Coast Eagles executives who supported this event. Thanks also to our corporate sponsors and supporters (Burley Sekem, Qantas and Mantaray Ningaloo Beach Resort). We'd especially like to express our gratitude to the Eagles and Dockers Football Clubs - to their coaches Adam Simpson and Ross Lyon - your attendance is particularly appreciated. Special guests Shannon Hurn, Michael Walters and Kara Donnellan – thank you for supporting the morning. Many thanks to Mr Rob Druitt, SASRF Board member who was our auctioneer for the morning. Our excellent host Mr Trevor Jenkins always greatly entertains and once again was integral to the success of the morning. The Fund would also like to thank Venues Live and Perth Audio Visual for all their assistance.
To those who attended – thank you, we hope you enjoyed the morning and look forward to seeing you at our next event.
