Your chance to be part of the 2008 All Blacks

Your chance to be part of the 2008 All Blacks…

Two days before the All Blacks take on England in Auckland, Graham Henry and members of his All Blacks team will auction off a spot in the 2008 squad… or at least a sneak preview at their Captains Run the day before the big match - in support of Save the Children at the Hyatt Regency Auckland on Thursday 12 June, from 6.30pm.

With John Campbell leading the question and answer session, Team Talk with Graham Henry and members of the All Blacks will be a star-studded night supporting Save the Children New Zealand, the official charity of the All Blacks.

Neil Waka is MC, comedian Mike King will perform, and stars attending include Paul Holmes, Frank Bunce, Murray Mexted, Rodney Hide, Carly Flynn, Lana Coc-Kroft, Kelly Swanson-Roe, Claire Chitham, Suzy Clarkson, Hilary Timmins, Toni Marsh, Erika Takacs and Sacha McNeil.

Save the Children is a non-political, non-sectarian development agency that delivers immediate and lasting improvements to the lives of children worldwide. Save the Children New Zealand is the Official Charity of the All Blacks, a relationship that began in 2005 as a direct response to the Asian tsunami. Funds raised from this event will be directed to Rewrite the Future, a programme which provides educational opportunities for millions of children in the world affected by armed conflict.
