Cricket Legends Lunch 2013 for Northcott photos and story; MiSociety Sydney 15 February 2013
Cricket Legends bowl ‘em over at Northcott Lunch
Northcott Cricket Legends Lunch drew together cricketing legends, Northcott clients and supporters along with guests to bowl up a memorable day at the Sydney Cricket Ground.
Northcott chose the Sydney Cricket Ground for their 17th Annual Cricket Legends Lunch– a venue that added enormously to the occasion with the buzz and anticipation at the pre-luncheon session drinks positively ‘Ashes test match’ like. Adding to the cricketing atmosphere an actual match was being played at the SCG, little wonder Northcott organisers are hoping that the Sydney Cricket Ground will become the permanent home ground for this so important charity fixture.
Cricket legends Frank Misson and Geoff ‘Henry’ Lawson, batting on the discussion Panel, didn’t duck the hot topical bouncer with straight bat views on cheating in sport highlighted by the very recent Australian Crime Commission’s report whilst both ‘legends’ declared their belief that at this time Australian cricket appeared to be clean.
Stephen O’Keefe, together with fellow current cricketer Doug Bollinger made up the rest of the Panel selection adding their informative opinions to some fast paced questioning from media personality and presenter Adam Spencer (not kitted out in traditional ‘whites’) MCing like an on the ball umpire.
Stephen O’Keefe, a Northcott Ambassador, is a bright personality and terrific communicator who epitomises the genuinely great spirit behind the work and services carried out by the dedicated Northcott team. Northcott is a not-for-profit organisation that provides support to more than 11,400 people with a broad range of disabilities and their families and carers across NSW and the ACT.
Northcott’s Cricket Legends Lunch was originally inspired by former Australian test cricketer, Frank Misson, and is a major fundraiser for Northcott’s Recreation and Leisure programs with the 17th annual CLL in 2013 raising $110,000 – hearty congratulations to all.
MiSociety is proud to be a continuing supporter of this very worthwhile cause – so stay tuned for details of their next event.
