Project Description

Our first event at Smith and Wollensky featured England & Harlequins Legend Danny Care. Guests arrived to a canapes, networking and drinks reception whilst our corporate partners were joined for a private pre-show with Danny and Former England Cricket Captain Chris Cowdrey.

70 guests were then escorted into an intimate space and seated for an hour of Q/A with Danny and Chris, video footage and audience questions. Danny discussed the highs and lows of his career, what it has taken to reach the pinnacle of the sport since moving his rugby from Leeds Tykes to Harlequins, his relationship with Martin Johnson, Eddie Jones and his view on the current Saracens saga whilst honestly portraying the impact of his incredible family and what it means to "play for them." He credited Harlequins RFC and everything they had done for him.

Mr Damian Hopley (RPA Chairman) spoke openly about the work of our charitable partners Restart and the work they do to improve the lives of our elite rugby players in the UK.

Photos and signings then commenced as every guest had the special chance to meet and have a photo taken with the England half-back before cracking onto a discounted supper in the stunning Smith and Wollensky.

Thank you to those guests for coming! What a special night!
