Team Ronan organizers plan BBQ and auction for injured youth rugby player

Rugby supporters and sports fans of all ages are encouraged to attend a special BBQ on Saturday, Nov. 3, from noon to 5 p.m. at the private home of Rick and Mary Reeder located at 1604 Crest Drive, Encinitas, 92024 to support the Team Ronan Recovery Fund.

Proceeds from the event benefit Ronan Nelson, a 4.5 GPA student at Cathedral Catholic High School who was critically injured last spring in a youth rugby match. Ronan suffered a broken neck, had surgery and is now undergoing intensive physical therapy in order to regain the ability to walk.

Team Ronan BBQ guests will enjoy a catered lunch, hosted drinks, entertainment and an exciting raffle. Because many of the costs associated with Ronan’s treatments are not covered by insurance the event will also have a special Live Auction featuring ‘Fund-A-Need’ packages.

Tickets are available online
