Boy, Oh Boy Wowee of the Week – Week 17
THE WEEK SEVENTEEN BOY, OH BOY WOWEE OF THE WEEK GOES TO…
Southern Power AFC for the “Power 4 Cook” fundraiser on the weekend. Saturday saw the Southern Power AFC band together to raise money for one of its favourite sons and 2 time Premiership player Adam Cook, who earlier this year had an incident that has left him in a wheelchair. The Senior side ‘donned the sash’ (Adam’s a big Essendon fan) in a one off jersey for the day which were auctioned off at a function that evening. In addition, a portion of the ticket price for the trivia night function and well as some of the canteen takings from the day were donated along with monies from silent auctions of memorabilia and a fantasy horse race (won by Puppeteer Graham). One of the Powers players Chris Briody, also shaved his head for the great cause which raised over $1,100. A huge shout out to the Western Magic football club who off their own bat whipped the hat around their own playing group and donated money to the cause also. Most would have never played against Adam or even knew who he was but as they said on the day, ‘We may do battle on the football field, but we all look after each other and we are the one community’. An extremely touching and generous donation which Southern Power and Adam are extremely grateful for. Across the day almost $12,000 was raised for Adam in addition to nearly $2,000 which has already been donated to his Go Fund Me Page. Please continue to support Adam in his Mission 2 Walk at https://www.gofundme.com/power-4-cook
NOTEWORTHY NOMINATIONS GO TO…
The AFL Sydney Masters Community for the completion of their Inaugural season. Saturday saw a historic occasion in Sydney football as the AFL Sydney Masters played their first ever Grand Final at Olds Park. This year eight clubs took part in the competition that was the first of it’s kind in NSW and ACT. With a footy for fun mantra, Masters AFL is for players over the age of 40. We would like to congratulate the Masters football community on a great season and the St George Dragons AFC for winning the Inaugural Premiership.
St George Dragons player Rodger Corser, for wearing his AFL Sydney Masters Premiership medal on national TV! The star of hit TV show ‘Doctor Doctor’ did a mad Monday press run with his Premiership Medal around his neck, showing it off proudly at many TV and radio interviews. Rodger spread the the word for the AFL Masters competition and for this we award him something as good as a Premiership medallion… a Boy, Oh Boy Wowee of the week nomination.
