Success Stories

  • Dexion Victoria AFL Grand Final Lunch – Thursday 22nd September, 2022

    Dexion Victoria AFL Grand Final Lunch – Thursday 22nd September, 2022

    The Good Blokes Society annual AFL Luncheon sponsored by Dexion Victoria, was held at the Grand Hyatt with over 400 attendees, including 80 of Dexion Victoria’s valued clients.

    The day commenced with “Good Bloke member” Gabriel Vargas singing the iconic tune of “Up There Cazaly” to kick off the event and set the atmosphere. Following Gab was Master Magician Jackson Aces, who captivated guests with his mind blowing magic tricks throughout the day. International performance painter Matteo Charles, was live on stage and turned a blank canvas into a Michael Jordan master piece in under 10 minutes. The artwork was sold by auction along with two surprise paintings of AFL legends Peter Daicos and Tony Shaw to an enthusiastic bidding crowd.

    A wonderful, insightful and funny panel of AFL greats Peter Daicos, Tony Shaw, Simon Madden and Terry Daniher, hosted by Jason Richardson, shared their memories of the 1990 Collingwood vs Essendon Grand Final clash. They all discussed their careers, families, friendships and entertained the audience with their hilarious banter. Fans were able to get photos with their footy heroes and have their Dexion Victoria Sherrin footballs autographed.

    Melbourne Business & Wellness Lunch – Thursday 2nd June, 2022

    Melbourne’s Business & Wellness Lunch was once again held at the Grand Hyatt Savoy Ballroom with over 280 guests in attendance.

    The day did not disappoint! The audience were captivated by Eddie McGuire’s open mic discussion on all things football and just life in general as Eddie McGuire. Just as captivating was the next speaker Jelena Dokic – Australian tennis coach, commentator, author and former professional tennis player who painfully but bravely shared her story of her younger self growing up with her abusive father. Her courage was inspiring and felt by all.

    MC Michael Roberts welcomed the business panel on stage which included Mark Ploenges (Ozwide Energy), Todd Morgan (Outside The Locker Room), David Kahn (Caspers Pies), Joe Dodd (Amrick), David Amos (Elysium Financial Services) and Scott Ewen (Bold Bridge Capital) who shared their experiences and expertise with the audience.

    Overall, the event was a great success in supporting one another, in raising money for our charity partners and just sharing the ‘Good Blokes Wellness’.

  • Good Blokes Walk For 24 - 2022

    Good Blokes Walk For 24

    The Inaugural Good Blokes Walk For 24 was held on 11th December, 2020 and was an outstanding success. Many members joined in on the walk at various stages to support this wonderful initiative. During the 24 hours there were many conversations shared and stories told that really strengthened the already incredible bond that members have created throughout the life of the GBS.

    Four members completed the full 24 hour walk throughout the Melbourne area and it was inspiring to see many members joining the final stages of the walk culminating at The George on Collins, a major supporter of the GBS. David Kemp, Steve Heavey, Jake Edwards and Shaun Wallis all walked the full 24 hours and as a result the GBS raised $24,000.00 for our charity partners Outside the Locker Room and Regional Education Support Network.

  • Legends of The Valley March 2023

    Legends of The Valley March 2023

    Held at Moonee Valley Racing Club where the evening kicked off with Jim ‘Pumper’ Cassidy reminiscing and sharing his experience on how he felt before and after winning the 1998 Cox Plate with Might and Power. Jim gave a select group of members a pre-event VIP tour of the Winner’s Enclosure and the Jockey’s Room.

    The main event commenced from 6pm with 120 members and guests in attendance. Hosted by Jason Richardson, ‘Richo’ was nothing short of outstanding and helped create an ambience of warmth, friendship, fun and support.

    The evening was about more than just racing. Guest speaker, the one and only Jim “Pumper” Cassidy, took us on a journey from his early days growing up in New Zealand, to what life looks like now post career.

    Our snd guest speaker was yet another great jockey and GBS Ambassador in Greg Hall – winner of the 1992 Cox Plate with Super Impose. Greg talked about his great win and life in general as a Jockey. He then went on to share that since retiring he has been battling alcoholism and depression. Greg mentioned that the support from GBS has been life changing and encouraged anyone to ask for help if they ever needed it. It was a very moving story and one that showcases the heartbeat of the GBS.

    Overall, the event was a great success and for all members who attended it was an evening of great entertainment and connection.

  • Melbourne Penfolds Lunch – Friday 19th August, 2022

    Melbourne Penfolds Lunch – Friday 19th August, 2022

    Back in August we hosted another sold out Penfolds lunch at the George on Collins. 100 wine lovers, members and guests attended and as always appreciated great service and first class food. Our premium corporate partners were able to invite their most valued clients to experience an afternoon of decadence including Wine Narrator and the Master of Penfolds “brand ambassador”, George Samios.

    Everyone thoroughly enjoyed the day and we raised $2,000 to support the 2022 Good Blokes Walk for 24 to be held Friday 25th and Saturday 26th November Midday to Midday.

    Sydney Golf Day

    On Friday 26th February 2021 in conjunction with Balmain Sports Centre we held our inaugural golf day at the prestigious St Michaels Golf Club in Sydney.

  • Squires Loft Cheltenham Golf Day – Friday 2nd September, 2022

    Squires Loft Cheltenham Golf Day – Friday 2nd September, 2022

    The Good Blokes spirit shone through once again at the Squires Loft Cheltenham Golf Day where 100 members and guests played plenty of good golf at the Moonah Links Legends course. Although the weather provided a beautiful spring day and perfect playing conditions, some players still gave unconvincing excuses for their below par scores!

    The day was filled with laughter and activity on and off the course with comedian duo The Nelson Twins, Squires Loft cooked their delicious RIBS on the party hole and Bondi Blue Vodka was flowing. The musical talents of Gabriel Vargas entertained guests throughout the day.

    This year we had record attendance at this highly anticipated Golf Day. Congratulations to our winners Leith Wickstein, Rohan Puls and Etienne Rizzo.
