Briars Rugby host Women in Sport Fundraising Gala
Briars Rugby Union Club will host a Women in Sport dinner on Saturday night to raise funds for their women’s team who will head to the Dubai 7s tournament in December.
The night will see an action packed program of raffles, auctions, lucky door prizes and panel discussions featuring six elite female athletes to highlight the current situation for women who compete in high performance sport.
The night will be hosted by Ladies Who League founder Mary Konstantopolos with panellists being bobsleigh athlete Sarah Blizzard, W-League player Aideen Keane, Super Netballer Amy Parmenter, Lauren Cheatle from the Sydney 6ers Women’s Big Bash, Iron woman Lizzie Welborn and Heptathlete and 100m hurdler Gillian Ragus.
“The event is celebrating the achievement of female athletes and hoping to raise money to support the team competing at one of the biggest Rugby 7s tournaments in the world. I envision through the panel discussions on the night we will also highlight the disparity in support that female athletes receive compared to their male equivalents” David Lannan, Briar’s Womens Rugby Club President.
