The 2016 Grassroots Sports Luncheon

The Grassroots Sports Luncheon, has quickly emerged as the must do corporate luncheon on the Gold Coast and its back for its seventh year on June 3rd at Jupiters Casino. 

Our Grassroots Ambassador - Australia’s most popular comic entertainer - Vince Sorrenti will be our esteemed MC and once gain he is set to have the audience in raptures with his unique brand humor and entertainment.

Our event has featured some outstanding and quite brilliant comedy performers and this year we are delighted to have secured Darren Carr whose stage show is exceptional.

Darren is one of Australia’s most popular stand up comedians and he has been specifically chosen to appear at Grassroots 

Each year’s Grassroots events seem to get better and better and we are expecting another massive day this year.

Whilst each of the six Luncheons to date have been overwhelmingly successful and highly entertaining, in just six years, the event has distributed approximately $220,000 to participating community based Australian Football Clubs.

With just weeks to the 2016 event, we recommend that you book your table now through your local Australian Football Club. To be held at Jupiters Casino on Friday 3rd June, the Luncheon will again include a star-studded line up of speakers. Vince Sorrenti and Darren will provide plenty of laughs whilst, in between, our Sports Panel will feature Barry Hall (only player to kick 100 goals in a season at 3 different clubs) and Alastair Lynch (3 time Premiership player). This will be hosted by Richard Champion.

The Grassroots Luncheon is a unique event in that AFL Community Clubs on the Gold Coast are participating and are the stakeholders of the event.

The event achieves 3 things:

  • It brings together Australian Football Clubs on the Gold Coast for a united event
  • It provides a vehicle for much needed fund raising to assist in the running of participating Grassroots Clubs via profit share with all proceeds going back to the Clubs
  • It provides the catalyst for a major annual Australian Football event on the Coast

If you’ve been before, you know how good the event is and you will want to come back and you need to book your table now. If you’ve never been before, you need to get yourself a seat or book a table. You won’t be sorry!
