Gentleman's Evening Do

Before anyone asks, there will be a ladies version of this, with details to come....but before that we have the Gents version, with this message from Chris Founds:

As you may be aware, Mumbles RFC U14s are raising money for LATCH, The Welsh Children’s Cancer Charity. Dylan Gunner, a 14 year old boy from the team, was diagnosed with a Brain Tumour and is now going through 12 months of treatment. The LATCH Organisation has been magnificent with their support to both Dylan and his family and will continue with this support throughout his treatment. Dylan is a local boy and has been playing rugby for Mumbles RFC from the age of 6. We started our activities with a sponsored walk before Christmas and we raised well over £4,000, which was fantastic!!

We are now organising a dinner at Langland Golf Club on Friday 26th April.  We are limited to 9 tables of 10 so it will be on a first come first served basis. The seniors, youth, old fogies from the club, South Gower and Dunvant have all asked for tables, and whilst of course I would be willing to sell to them to make the money, I would personally prefer to fill the room with our Junior section.

The tickets are priced at £250 for a table, if you can’t take a full table then we will try and fit all numbers in, just let me know how many tickets you want (£25 each). Full details for the evening will follow, but it will be a Lounge suit affair with a three course meal. We have secured Dai Vaughan (Chairman of Dunvant RFC and an excellent speaker) to do the after dinner speech, there will be a raffle (with good prizes, not your usual c**p), an auction, including a signed Swans shirt (Michu’s) and more.

I need to know how many tickets you require by 8th Feb and then money, by 1st March. As you can imagine this takes a lot of organising on top of running and coaching the U14s team so please help me here by replying promptly.

It would be great if I didn’t have to sell tables to other people and we sold out just with the Junior section!!!!! Thanks and Best Wishes, Chris.

So it is £25 a ticket, and 10 on a table. Please let Mike know if we can raise a Wildcats table. Or combine with another age group. Very unfortunately, I (Mike) cannot be there on that night, so I won't be able to get the ball rolling. But if someone is interested and can coordinate then please let me know and I'll help as I can.
