The North Harbour Club's annual Lexus of North Shore Charity Rugby Lunches are always popular and the 2019 event proved to be no different. Over 350 people were at QBE Stadium on Wednesday 21st August to hear CEO of New Zealand Rugby Steve Tew. Unfortunately Tew was unable to attend due to the funeral of former All Black Bruce Deans in Christchurch. His replacement, none other than his Chairman Brent Impey, proved to be a fantastic speaker – delivering Steve Tew's intended presentation and more. MC for the event was former All Black and North Harbour Club Ambassador Ian Jones. AIMES Award alumni Joseph Bergin also spoke and a highlight of the lunch was the charity auction raising funds for the North Harbour Club AIMES Awards programme. Shane Cortese, also a North Harbour Club Ambassador was the auctioneer and oversaw some lively bidding for some amazing prizes, including a trip for two to London with back-stage passes to the Phantom of the Opera. Also auctioned was an electric ride-on car for children donated by Lexus of North Shore.
