TICKETS for the 10th anniversary Biggest Ever Blokes Lunch prostate cancer fundraiser went on sale yesterday.
Organising committee chairman Neil Macdonald told guests at yesterday’s launch about the the new 2019 Blokes Lunch Ambassador program, with high profile businessman, Hume and Iser Mitre10 managing director Stephen Iser named the inaugural gold ambassador.
Mr Iser maintains a high level of fitness and wellbeing through his commitment to cycling and a local gym, as well as being aware of the importance of a good diet.
The community stalwart encouraged all men to keep fit and healthy, and to look out for one another.
Bendigo Community Health nurse Peter Strange also encouraged men to keep up with their annual health checks and to be aware of what their tests are saying and the power of the information they provide.
Organisers are hoping more than 600 men will attend the 2019 Biggest Ever Blokes Lunch on Friday, November 22 at Bendigo Stadium to help raise funds for Prostate Cancer Foundation of Australia and Bendigo Health.
Guest speakers for Bendigo’s lunch this year include football identities Barry Breen and Mark Maclure, while comedian Tom Siegert should provide plenty of laughs as “The Suburban Footballer”.
Tickets for this year’s lunch are $120 each, or $1200 per table of 10, and are now available from Bendigo Stadium during office hours, or online by searching the Ticketek website.
