If you’re in the San Francisco Bay Area for Rugby World Cup Sevens 2018 San Francisco, come over to Oakland and support Women’s Rugby at a great event, Wednesday night! As a fan of Women’s Rugby, myself, I’m happy to tell you about it.
Women’s Rugby is a sport that has some of the most amazing people you will ever meet. In interview, after interview, I’ve done over the years, the one characteristic that women rugby players have is the they’re great teammates – that’s all they talk about. And that follows through all aspects of life. But the sports that produces such great people can’t exist just on a wish – it takes money.
That’s why Women’s Rugby stars Morgan Roberts and Nicole Strasko formed this special event.
The night before the Rugby World Cup Sevens 2018 San Francisco gets started with a Thursday evening opening ceremony, join “Women For Rugby,” a new non-profit established June of this year, and tdedicated to helping USA Rugby programs, as it hosts a grand party fundraising gathering for USA Women’s Eagles 7’s Rugby.
On Wednesday night, July 18th at 6PM, come and help Women’s Rugby, and enjoy evening appetizers, a meet and greet, and jersey ceremony for the Women’s Eagles 7’s Team, and official fundraising kick-off for new non-profit program, “Women For Rugby”!
The event will be held at the Oakland Rotunda, the old Liberty House Department Store, that is a modern Oakland landmark building today and located at 300 Frank H Ogawa Plaza Oakland, CA 94612. It’s just off BART 12th Street, Oakland City Center Station. Exit the station via the north escalator at Oakland City Hall / 300 Frank H Ogawa Plaza, and the entrance to the Rotunda is just 50 feet forward and to the right.
