Ranger South Blue September Breakfast
Date: Saturday, 27th September 2014
Location: Sopheze Espresso Garden, Timaru
Time: 07:00 AM-09:00 AM
Ranger South is a local South Canterbury commercial and industrial construction company.

We have invited our carpenters and also the staff from Ranger Specialist Coatings (painting and coatings specialists) and Can Frame (frame and truss manufacturers) to attend a fundraising breakfast at Sopheze Espresso Garden (Mitre 10 café) on September 27th.

The doors open at 7am and at the moment, a hot buffet breakfast is booked to be served at 7.15am, but this is flexible to suit a speaker’s needs. If interested, Stuart could either speak before or after the food is served. There would be less noise to speak over if he spoke before the food was served. My suggestion would be that he deliver a short talk (max 5 min?) at 7.15am. We would provide him with a complimentary breakfast. Would it be appropriate to also give him a box of chocolates? Does he have a speaking fee I need to factor in?

We would like a brief talk about the work of the Foundation, the risks of prostate cancer and the importance (and ease) of getting a prostate check.

Please let me know Stuart’s response. We would be delighted to have him come and speak to us.
