Fundraiser Night for Injured Players
Dear Supporter, Player, Sponsors, Committee and Friends,
Most of you have heard or read the news lately (Herald Sun & Leader Newspapers) that 2 of our footballers in Jason Vaughan and Paul Evans had their necks broken in the same game of Football for Mordialloc.
This event has had a major effect on not only the two players, but both their families as they struggle through the recovery process.
I am happy to say that, at this point, both men are expected to make a full recovery, but neither guy will ever play contact sport again.
These two guys are a major part of our club and both brilliant sports people, and to see these injuries occur, is horrific.
I cannot comment on the incidents as they are currently under investigation by both the league and the AFL. We will publish the results on our website though.
Folks, as Vice President of this club, I , along with many others at the club, have struggled in dealing with this situation, and watching these two guys go through their initial injuries and now their recovery and rehab. I struggle to put it into words, the devastation this has had on the guys and their families. In an instant, their worlds have been turned up side down. Family holidays cancelled, Careers put on hold, Businesses effected, They cannot drive the family car to pick up children from school. Taking a shower is a struggle.
On the Wednesday 7th July, the Mordialloc Supers and Masters Teams will be holding a Fundraising Night to support both families.
The event will be held at the:
Mordialloc Sporting Club,
Level 1 (Upstairs)
528 Main Street Mordialloc.
Time: 7pm - 10.30pm
Tickets $50.00 per person
Ticket includes: Beer Wine and Soft Drinks from 7pm - 9pm

Auction and Raffles
Folks, we are aiming to have over 200 people attend, and this email is to not only ask you to dig deep for me, and the guys, I am also asking if, in any way, you would be in a position to donate any goods or services that I could either Auction off or Raffle. Or if you know of any one that could help, please pass on my details to them.
Alternatively, you could make a cash donation to the night. ALL money raised will be split 50/50 between the 2 families. Cheques and Money orders to be made out to the Mordialloc Football Club.
