Burleigh Bears v PNG Hunters – Sunday 23 April 2017

On Sunday 23 April 2017 thew inaugural footy match between Burleigh Bears and PNG Hunters was played out with a win to the PNG Team.

The Burleigh Bears hosted the day with all proceeds going to the Burleigh Heads RSL Sub Branch and Mates 4 Mates. About 30 visitors turned up from the Burleigh RSL, Legacy and a number of individual Veterans, including a number of serving Defence Force members. The Burleigh Bears were very generous in their support for all Veterans and the organisation of the day with drinks and food being provided. All those present had a wonderful time and a chance to parade in front of the crowd who were very appreciative towards the Bears and the Veterans. The footy crowd were supportive of the Burleigh Heads RSL with generous donations.

A number of quality photos of the day were taken by Mrs. Vanessa Hafner, the wife of Colonel David Hafner, who is presently serving overseas. The photos depicted below were provided by courtesy of Vanessa Hafner and are much appreciated by the Burleigh Heads RSL Sub Branch.

The Burleigh Heads RSL Sub Branch look forward to working closely with the Burleigh Bears throughout the year to further assist in supporting Veterans in the Burleigh Heads area.
