Gordon McQueen to speak at FC United Fundraising Gala Dinner

FC United is holding its third Fundraising Gala Dinner on Friday 9 October 2015 at Broadhurst Park and we’re delighted to announce that former Manchester United and Scotland defender Gordon McQueen will be the guest speaker.

The Gala Dinner is an important fundraiser for the club and part of a range of different events and initiatives that are helping to generate the funds to enable the club to sustainably finance the continuing development of our new ground and community facility in Moston, north Manchester. The previous two Gala Dinners raised a combined total of £40k. Our supporters have raised - and continue to raise - a magnificent amount from their own pockets and events like this are a vital opportunity to raise funds from other sources to complement everything else we are doing.

The dinner, which will be hosted by acclaimed TV and radio sports broadcaster Tony Lockwood, promises to be a memorable occasion with the former Manchester United and Scotland footballer talking about his career in football and the media and answering questions from the audience. FC United manager Karl Marginson will also be in attendance to answer questions and there will also be a comedian on stage during the evening.

Guests will be welcomed with a drinks reception, a three-course meal with wine, accompanied by music and an auction and raffle with some unique items and experiences on offer. The event will take place in the function room overlooking the pitch at Broadhurst Park and those who attend are promised an enjoyable night.

Tickets for the Fundraising Gala Dinner cost £1,000 + VAT for a table of 9 (a saving of £125) or £125 + VAT per person. Space is limited and we expect tickets to sell quickly so those interested in taking tables or booking place are encouraged to contact us as soon as possible to reserve their places at what promises to be a very special evening with great guests and good company.
