President’s Luncheon a Big Hit
There was just as much activity happening off the ground as there was on it on Sunday, with the Williamstown Football Club’s President’s Luncheon continuing to be a huge success with great food and big names entertaining a room packed with guests.
Jeff Corfe, or as he is more famously known, ‘Joffa’, was the first guest speaker of the day, entertaining those in attendance with tales from his early days and how football came to ‘save’ him.
Next up was Managing Director of hockingstuart Williamstown, Joanne Royston, who spoke about the now eight-year partnership they have had with the Club as a major sponsor, and why they continue to be a leader when it comes to Victorian real estate.
The headline speaker for the day, Collingwood champion and current senior coach, Nathan Buckley, then delighted the crowd with anecdotes from his past, and spoke fondly of the two times he lined up as a Seagull during the Williamstown-Collingwood alignment.
Signed jumpers by Buckley then went up for auction, with Gary Jeffs taking home a signed Collingwood guernsey, while Joanne Royston took home a signed Williamstown Hall of Fame guernsey, as pictured below.
