Churchie Ashes Luncheon

Posted on 15 December 2021

Churchie hosted its annual Ashes Luncheon at the Brisbane Convention and Exhibition Centre on Tuesday 7 December,  the day before the much-anticipated start of the Ashes series at the Gabba.

MC Evan Bancroft welcomed the 1020 guests on behalf of Headmaster Dr Alan Campbell, thanked our numerous valuable sponsors headed by Porsche Centre Brisbane and introduced our charity for the day, MND and Me Foundation, by way of a truly touching video.

It was a wonderful luncheon full of networking, entertainment and fun. The panel, consisting of Matthew Hayden, Michael Kasprowicz and Graeme Hick, entertained the very attentive audience with cricket stories of days gone by and a summary of the ensuing test match.

Our guest speaker, ‘Dr Paulo Maestro—psychologist to the stars’ enthralled everyone during his 40-minute address before finally revealing that he was, in fact, not a psychologist to the stars but a corporate imposter!

A fiercely contested bowling competition drew plenty of attention and the raffle and auctions were wonderfully supported by our very generous guests and supporters.
