The Breed Banquet is a casual seated interbreed dinner catered by Hester Guy with cash bar and guest speaker Nick Allen. A fabulous chance to celebrate the beef industry amongst friends. Monday 15th May, 6pm bar opens, seated at 6.30pm at the Manfeild Stadium Suites, pre-booked and paid tickets only.
About Nick: As a kid, it was Nick Allen’s dream to climb Mt Everest. As he grew, his passion for climbing mountains took hold and became his life goal. Until one day he found himself extraordinarily weak, fatigued, and unwell.
Diagnosed in his early twenties with Primary Progressive Multiple Sclerosis, he found himself dependent on a motorised chair to get around. Unable to walk for more than five or ten minutes at a time; mountains were no longer Nick’s obstacle to overcome.
Come along to be inspired by Nick’s story of unwavering determination and how he navigated such a severe and life-altering challenge, not to mention, a Himalayan peak.
Tickets $60+GST per head to be charged to your breed account. Email Kaylene to book tickets on email@example.com
