The Edmund Rice Dinner at the Brisbane Convention Centre last Saturday evening was an amazing success. A crowd of 600 filled the function room where they were engaged by inspiring addresses from Br Damian Price, legendary Rugby League coach Wayne Bennett and CEO of the NAB Cameron Clyne. MC for the evening was former Wallabies’ captain, Paul McLean.
Brisbane schools were well represented by present and past staff as well as by old boys and partners. We are also grateful to the considerable corporate support given to the cause. Auctioneer Brendan Tutt lead the generous guests to ensure that the evening was very successful in raising funds for Christian Brothers’ overseas and Australian ministries for the disadvantaged.
Congratulations to Anthony Ryan of the Province Development Office in Brisbane and his generous supporters for this memorable achievement.
