The dinner will feature appearances from Norths, Queensland and Australian legend Ian Healy, South African great Barry Richards and Brisbane Heat star Chris Lynn.
Taking place on Saturday the 15th of December, the dinner will be hosted at the Gabba Legends Room and will support the Norths Cricket Foundation and raise money for the development of the Australian National Cricket Campus development.
The National Cricket Campus will include upgrading Allan Border Field and the National Cricket Centre in Albion, plus the development of the Shaw Road precinct, located at Norths home ground in Kalinga.
The Shaw Road Precinct would see the venue upgraded to enable it to host senior men’s Domestic One Day matches, women’s International series games, International A series and Tour matches. It would also deliver increased community access to junior and senior club cricket.
Among the proposed additions to the Kalinga precinct are:
- A new Pavilion between the Ian Healy Oval and Alan Pettigrew Oval catering for male and female teams,
- Lighting of the main oval and training areas,
- Provision of 16 new turf practice nets and wickets,
- Renovation of the playing surfaces and wicket blocks.
Tables are available for $1,500 or individual seats are $160. Contact Northern Suburbs on 0434 225 219 or firstname.lastname@example.org to secure a ticket.
