We are pleasedto inform you that Portsmouth RFC will be hosting a fund-raising lunch andauction on Friday 22nd May 2020 in central London. The guestspeakers will be Jason Leonard and Vicki Cornborough (both eminent custodiansof the No 1 shirt!) and your presence and that of any guest you may wish tobring along, is required to make this a successful and profitable afternoon forour beloved rugby club!

 

The lunch willcommence from 12 noon at the Smith & Wollensky restaurant in Covent Gardenand will close at 5pm. The ticket price is £90 per person and will include abottomless drinks reception, a 3-course lunch and an auctioneer (as well as theguest speakers).

 

So, not only dowe require you to support your club, we would like you to bring along friends,customers, clients and bosses so that they can enjoy the experience and bid forthe auction lots! There will be a lot of rugby memorabilia in the auction butwe are also looking for donations of say, a weekend break in a hotel or spa ora day spent in the company of Chalky White, you know, really sought-afterprizes that people would bid a lot of money for!

 

We will dine onround tables of 10 and we also require volunteer ‘table captains’ who will beresponsible for their table and filling it with guests. I will be bringing atable of 10 guests with me as will Jon Whitehouse and others but remember, themore tables we sell, the more profit we gain for the club.

 

It would befantastic if the Junior Section of the club could take a table or two and theValkyries the same, if not more! If you know of a company that would like atable, then great, put them in contact with me!

 

This is a superbopportunity to raise serious money for Portsmouth RFC and if anyone can help usprepare and manage this event, or be a table captain, please come forward andcontact me or Jon Whitehouse as below ASAP as we really are on a tightdeadline.

 

To quote thegreat Ian “Foody” Foord: ‘ASK NOT WHAT MY CLUB CAN DO FOR ME, BUT WHAT CAN I DOFOR MY CLUB?’
