League stars fea­ture

Central Leader - - NEWS -

There’s a bunch of kids train­ing hard for the Spe­cial Olympics World Sum­mer Games be­ing held in Los Angeles next year and the Cen­tral Leader is go­ing to help get them there.

Our fundrais­ing arm, the Mad Butcher and Sub­ur­ban News­pa­pers Com­mu­nity Trust, has teamed up with some big names of rugby league to hold a spe­cial lun­cheon at the Eller­slie Con­ven­tion Cen­tre on June 20.

The lunch will cel­e­brate the ca­reers of three lo­cal lads who went on to be­come stars of the game at an in­ter­na­tional level.

Broth­ers Kurt and Dane Soren­son both started their ca­reers with the Mt Welling­ton War­riors be­fore putting on Kiwi jer­seys and the leg­endary Gary ‘‘Whiz’’ Free­man was a North­cote Tiger prior to his big leap to star­dom.

All three are fly­ing in from Aus­tralia for the event.

Tick­ets cost $100 each and will also come with a free en­try ticket to the 7.30pm Voda­fone War­riors v Bris­bane Bron­cos match at Mt Smart Sta­dium, on June 21. Email diana.broom field@far­i­fax­me­dia.co.nz or phone 925 9942.
