The Sydney Convicts are taking off their clothes once again to raise money so the club gets the chance to win the Bingham Cup for a third year in a row.
The money raised also helps fund our regular entry in the suburban ruby union competition, fundraising coordinator Kevin Perry said.
The Bingham Cup is next winter but we have to be prepared and raise money. Last year we sent over 50 players and 30 support staff. It’s full-on, particularly given the size of the club.
Not everyone can afford to attend, so the money raised helps subsidise the costs. Rugger Bugger is vital for this.
It’s the eighth Rugger Bugger fundraiser for this world champion rugby team. The Convicts being exposed at the Midnightshift Club this Saturday, 2 May.
We have two guys from the club, Stu Fenton and Jase Brown, who work together to choreograph the Full Monty show, Perry said. We do get naked and it’s a very hot group of guys. We have new released music that we have had remixed by top DJs. We are making it a night of variety with five separate shows with lip-synching and drag shows.
Pre-sale ticket holders are entitled to enter a draw to win a date with a Convict, which will be drawn on the night.
This is something extra to say thank you to all our committed supporters. One of our hot players put up his hand to go on the date with the lucky winner, Perry said. It’s going to be a fabulous evening and who knows how the night will end.
info: Discounted pre-sale tickets available at themidnightshift.com or at the Midnightshift Videobar for $20. Tickets are also available on the night for $25. Doors open at 8pm.
Update: The original version of this article mistakenly stated the event would be held Sunday 2 May rather than is Saturday 2 May.
