Huddersfield Town chairman Dean Hoyle has called on some of his high-profile colleagues from across English football to help him raise money for the Town Foundation through a unique event.
Dean will hold his first Chairman’s Lunch at a Huddersfield venue on Friday, September 26 – and he’s invited some of his most esteemed colleagues to join him.
Heading the VIP guest list is Dr Assem Allem, owner of Premier League club Hull City. The 74-year-old Egyptian businessman made his name as a manufacturer of industrial generators, but has since hit the headlines as the man in charge of Hull City, leading them to the top flight and never failing to give his forthright opinion on many matters.
Dean and Dr Allem will be joined by Wigan Athletic owner Dave Whelan. Another of the game’s big characters, Dave is the mastermind behind the Latics’ meteoric rise up the English football pyramid to a long Premier League stint and a landmark FA Cup win in 2013. Aside from football, he is also the man behind the success of JJB and DW Sports.
The Chairman’s Lunch will include a drinks reception and a three course meal in the company of many leading Yorkshire businesses and some familar faces before the line-up of chairmen take to the stage.
Proceeds from the event will go to the Town Foundation, the club’s registered charity, which works with children and young people in the community.
Tables and individual seats are available for what promises to be a unique insight into the most important role in football. Contact email@example.com for details.
Town Foundation trustee Sean Jarvis, who will also attend the event, said: “The Chairman’s Lunch promises to be an absolutely intriguing day. I believe it is must for any football fan!
“It’s fantastic that these gentlemen are giving up their valuable time for a worthy cause in the Town Foundation.
“The money generated from this event will help the charity continue to make a difference in our community.”
