Rugby Canada invites you to join them for the “Men of the Match Gala” sponsored by The Globe and Mail on Thursday, June 13th at the beautiful Arcadian Court in downtown Toronto.
This unique opportunity will feature both the Canadian and Irish national teams coming together for an enjoyable evening which will see the Canadian and Irish business and rugby communities coming together as well. Guests will enjoy cocktails and conversation with team members and their coaching staff and then sit down for dinner and the evening program.
Our guest speaker for the Men of the Match Gala is Dr. Pat Parfrey who will speak about his rugby career in Ireland, his move to Canada and the growth rugby has seen in Canada since his arrival. Having earned a cap against New Zealand as a member of the Irish National Team, Dr. Parfrey has been involved in many roles in the Canadian rugby community including President of the Board of Directors for Rugby Canada, coach of the 1999 Senior Men’s Rugby World Cup Team and on a more local level, coach of the Newfoundland Rock.
Highlights of the 2000 Canada vs. Ireland match up at Fletcher’s Field will be shown throughout the evening. Many of those in attendance will remember being at the game and some in attendance will remember playing in the game. A fundraising live and silent auction will also be held.
Tickets for the dinner are $250 per person or purchase a table of eight for $1800.
