League stars feature
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 firstname.lastname@example.org or phone 925 9942.
