September 10th was the 2010 HSBC Rugby Charity Dinner featuring John Kirwan. John Kirwan is an ALL Blacks Legend, a World Rugby Winner, the Rugby World Cup Ambassador for 2011, and the current National Coach for Japans’ Rugby Team.
This sold-out event took place at the Shangri-la Hotel, across from the Portico Media office. We were honoured to be the guests of the New Zealand Trade Office, one of the key sponsors of the Dinner.
