Press Release;
 
Australian Football Legend, Kevin Sheedy AO to headline the
Free Throw Foundation’s first Basketball to Footy Luncheon in Adelaide
 
The Free Throw Foundation is delighted to announce AFL Legend Kevin Sheedy AO will be its next guest speaker at its luncheon event on the 18th of July at the Festival Function Centre.  
 
‘Having someone like Kevin Sheedy talk to our guests will truly be a highlight for 2019. His knowledge and wisdom will be something not to be missed’
Free Throw Foundation Chairman David Spear said
 
The Free Throw Foundation are thrilled to host their first Basketball to Footy luncheon event and are looking forward to not only bringing local AFL and Basketball people together but members of the wider South Australian sporting community. Kevin will share some of his successful coaching career anecdotes coupled with personal insights, stories and tales, including his views on the ever increasing aspect of more basketballers successfully turning to football.
 
“When fellow Board Member, Vicki Sporn approached us with the opportunity to have ‘Sheeds’ generously donate his time for our first Basketball to Footy event we jumped at it. In addition to raising the profile of the foundation, all funds raised will go directly back into supporting kids in the basketball community here in South Australia”.
 
Kevin Sheedy AO, a four-time AFL premiership coach and Australian Football Hall of Fame member, is an icon who transcends sport. While no one is bigger than the game, he is as big as it gets and a master storyteller to boot. As a player and coach over five decades his record is unsurpassed and the ANZAC day games and Dreamtime at the G are both outcomes of his passion and commitment to the game and our culture. Kevin is challenging, opinionated and always interesting and few speakers are able to motivate like he can.
