BRINGING BACK BUCK!!
National Tribute – Sir Wayne Shelford is an evening celebrating the achievements of the inspirational former All Black captain both on and off the rugby field.
The televised function will be staged at North Shore’s Eventfinda Stadium with Sir Buck's family, friends and former All Black and North Harbour colleagues sharing their favourite ‘Buck’ stories. Proceeds from the event will benefit North Harbour community rugby.
The Sir Wayne Shelford event follows the successful staging of National Tribute – Sir John Kirwan. The 2019 function was a sell-out with seven hundred guests entertained by Sir JK’s closest ‘mates’ sharing amusing anecdotes about the guest of honour. Sir John nominated proceeds of his event go to support junior rugby at his beloved Auckland Marist Rugby Club.
Event promoter, Sports Inc.’s Kelsen Butler, is looking forward to bringing the special function together.
“The evening is going to be very entertaining with plenty of great stories to be shared. I’ve no doubt the likes of Eric Rush, Glen Osborne and Frano Botica will have a few ‘Buck’ yarns that have never been heard before,” said Butler.
National Tribute – Sir Wayne Shelford will see seven-hundred guests treated to a three-course meal before the attendees become the live ‘studio’ audience as the eighty-minute event goes to air on Sky Sport. There will also be three-hundred individual seats available in the 'Bringing Back Buck' 'Terraces' where attendees get to watch the television show go to air.
Included in the evening’s activities will be an auction of memorabilia and money-can’t-buy experiences with proceeds benefiting North Harbour community rugby, Shelford’s chosen cause. David Gibson, North Harbour Rugby CEO, is delighted to be involved.
“He is a man of great mana. A true legend when it comes to North Harbour and New Zealand Rugby. He continues to inspire many Kiwis through his community and charity work. We feel absolutely privileged that he has chosen to support community Rugby in the province.”
