Cameron Smith's guest appearance
CURRENT Australian Kangaroos and Queensland Maroons captain Cameron Smith will be the special guest at a dinner next week at the Central Queensland Leagues Club in Bundaberg.
The 302-game veteran with the Melbourne Storm will be the main guest at the dinner on Friday, November 13.
A prize, which was won through a promotion during the 2015 NRL season, was won by the Western Suburbs rugby league club that now has Smith in the region for a dinner.
Manager of the leagues club Marion Callow says the club was shocked when they heard they had won.
"We were in disbelief," Callow said.
"To secure one of the stars of the competition, and have him come to Bundaberg, is a huge coup for the region."
Smith will be here for the weekend after the dinner, but won't run any clinics in Bundaberg.
Despite that, the club says people will not want to miss out on the chance to meet the premiership star.
"There won't be many chances to talk to, and meet a current NRL star, in a relaxed environment," she said.
"We will be holding a question-and-answer session with him as well, so people will be able to ask Cam some questions."
Tickets for the night are still available at $85 a person and $800 for a table of ten.
Merchandise will also be available in an auction to raise funds for the Western Suburbs club.
After finishing in the semis earlier this year, in the Bundaberg Rugby League, the Western Suburbs rugby league club is hoping the funds can build a successful 2016 campaign.
"We will be looking to sell memorabilia with Smith's signature on a range of items," Callow said.
