“It was the most successful event we had in eight years of doing it,” he said.

“Because of Josh Kennedy and the fact the Eagles won the premiership.

“We got over 130 people for dinner and 144 people came for the golf day, the field was packed.

“I haven’t seen the final count yet but I’m confident that we raised over $35,000.“
