NRL's fashionable next generation
The iSelect Titans’ much anticipated Women in League lunch in May will have a special feature this year – a fashion parade featuring some of the players’ children.
And the cute factor that will wow the women on May 2 at Jupiters was certainly evident today when Ashley Harrison’s son Ethan and Will, and Siuatonga Likiliki’s twins Paxton and Cruz, did a catwalk rehearsal at Burleigh Heads-Mowbray Park Surf Club in preparation for the big day.
The popular children's fashion label Duke of London will be showcasing their yet to be released autumn and winter collection at the Women in League lunch.
The Gold Coast based label, now worn by international celebrities including Mason Kardashian and Gwen Stefani's boys, is also a huge hit within the funky NRL community.
Around 100 women attended the inaugural lunch last year and the interest has built from there and the luncheon is now regarded by the women in and around the game as one of the best events on their calendar, all part of the NRL’s celebration of the role women play in rugby league.
Titans’ players and their partners attend and this year will be significant in that professional rugby league’s first woman chairperson, Rebecca Frizelle, will be present in her role as head of the Titans’ board.
A major raffle will be held on the day with profits going to a charity which is close to the hearts of the Titans - 4ASD kids, which was established by former player Mat Rogers and his wife Chloe.
4 ASD Kids was begun by Mat and Chloe after learning that their son Max has autism. Their dream is to be able to change the lives of families with children battling with an Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) by assisting them to access the early intervention treatment that they believe is critical to giving these kids the best chance at leading a normal life and reaching their full potential.
Tickets to the lunch are still available at $120 per person or $1000 for a table of 10, by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org or by contacting the Titans on (07) 5656 5650.
