Phil, you must take a great deal of the credit for all the compliments we have received. The auction made more than reserve on every item and I have heard nothing but praise for you ‘expertise’. Everyone at the function has said that the Gala was the ‘best yet’ and are already looking forward to next year.

EJ lunch moved to the Pleniary
Friday, 27 September 2019
Fortuitously the organisers of E J Whitten lunch last year decided on a venue change from Atlantic wharf to the Pleniary. Over 700 people in Grand Final spirit were entertained comedian Vince Sorrenti and AFL legends, Leigh Matthews, Mick Malthouse and Alastair Clarkson. Hosted by Luke Darcy the audience supported the auction well which raised money for mens health. Ted Whitten Jrn gave a fitting tribute to two great friends of the foundation, past chairman, Peter Burnett and Danny Frawley both who died this year.
