The Annual Sports Luncheon is held in early January each year and attracts 300 + patrons, who enjoy a great afternoon of entertainment with well-known sporting identities, comedians, and song and dance to keep everyone well and truly entertained.
Five events have been held to date. Four at the Sorrento Yacht Club and the 2020 was held at the Portsea Golf Club.
Each year has a specific sporting theme.
- 2016 – Rio comes to Sorrento (Olympics theme)
- 2017 – Grand Slam comes to Sorrento (Tennis theme)
- 2018 – The Ashes come to Sorrento (Cricket theme)
- 2019 – Aussie Rules comes to Sorrento (AFL theme)
- 2020 – Women in Sport comes to Sorrento (Female sports theme)
The event is MC’d by a well-known identity, and the Sports Panel is made up of famous sporting personalities in their specific field.
The comedians have been hilarious and Jason Coleman and his dancing troupe really set the scene for the day.
These events have raised over $280,000 to date, the funds of which are donated to various worthy charities and to those in need in the local community.
We could not have put these events together without the fabulous support of our sponsors
APT, RT Edgar, Mercedes Benz Brighton and Mornington, Kay & Burton, Coastcom, Bendigo Bank, and the many local businesses who generously donate great items for the auction and raffle segments on the day.
The event would not happen without the many patrons who support this event each year to whom we are indebted to.
This event has become one of the iconic summer events on the Mornington Peninsula.
