Footy Finals

WIRV Footy Finals Luncheon

The Annual Footy Finals Luncheon at Crown Palladium is WIRV’s signature function. Running for more than 20 years, the Footy Finals Luncheon has been held each year since 1997, and attracts an average of 700 guests from the insolvency, restructuring and wider industry group.

Undoubtedly the largest networking event on the Melbourne insolvency calendar, this event is not to be missed. With a new celebrity host and panel of football celebrities each year, as well as a charity auction, this event provides an afternoon of great entertainment over a 3 course sit down lunch, followed by further drinks and networking at Club 23.

In 2018, the event was hosted by Sam Kekovich and our speakers included Susan Alberti AC, Brendan Fevola, Charlie Curnow and Peta Searle.

Each year WIRV carefully chooses a charity to showcase and support as part of the luncheon, and hosts a live and silent auction as part of the event in order to raise funds for the charity.

In recent years, WIRV has supported Her Heart, SisterWorks and Maddie Riewoldt’s Vision, to name a few.

Save the Date! WIRV’s next Footy Finals Luncheons will be held on the following dates:

23rd Annual Footy Finals Luncheon – 13 September 2019
