Rock Auction 2018

We would like to invite you to our 29th Annual Rugby Dinner, Auction and Dance at the Delta Hotel on Friday January 26, 2018, starting with cocktails at 6:30p.m, dinner at 7:30pm

We ask you to organize a table of 8-12 and RSVP to Pat Parfrey at the below contacts.

13 Regent Street, St. John's, Newfoundland, A1A 5A4
Telephone: (709)777-8048 (O), (709) 753-7949 (H),
E-Mail: pparfrey@mun.ca

Cost will be $200 per person, with $100 tax deductible donation.

This includes 2 pre-dinner drinks, dinner and wine.

We have borrowed $300,000 for the facility development and have agreed to provide funding from this event for the following:

  1. Building Benvon’s Room to support the hugely successful Active Start program, organized by Simon Blanks, where the objective is to stimulate exercise in preschoolers at no charge to the families.
  2. Extending Riley’s Room, a strength and conditioning facility for high performance athletes that is currently receiving unbelievably high use.

In addition, this event will contribute to the salaries of our professional coaches, Morgan Lovell and Simon Blanks and subsidize travel for our provincial teams across all age groups.

Finally we plan to renovate the Swiler’s upper field in 2018 at a cost of $650,000 and name it after Adele Poynter. Naming rights courtesy of a kind donation by Patrick O’Callaghan.

The Auction is an integral component of our event as we continue our linkage with the Arts Community to provide the best of Newfoundland’s visual arts and crafts.
