A SPECIAL GUEST: PETER SCHWAB
AFL great Peter Schwab will be joining us!
Peter had a distinguished playing career in the AFL/VFL, with a 12 season career with Hawthorn. Not only did Peter win three flags, but he also missed the 1989 Grand Final after a suspension for striking an Essendon player.
Peter has gone on to hold coaching roles with Richmond and Hawthorn, and even managed the AFL Umpiring Department for 2 years!
We are very lucky to have hosting the Vietnam Swans AFL Grand Final Party in Saigon!
AUCTION ITEMS AND RAFFLES
Last year’s auction items were superb, including signed playing jumpers from GWS Giants, Sydney Swans, Collingwood Magpies and Alex Jesaulenko. Brisbane’s Eric Hipwood even chipped in a pair of signed footy boots. We’ve gone up a level for 2019, with details to be announced soon.
Games and raffles are also a big tradition at our events: Pick the margins, first goalkickers in each quarter, best players will add to the excitement of the day. We have a long list of very generous supporters, including our donors from 2018 (who will surely be back again!):
