The new facility will include one synthetic and two grass hockey pitches with irrigation, landscaping and floodlighting, at Warwick Open Space.

The City of Joondalup has committed $4.5 million to the project and received a further $1.2 million from the State Government, while Whitford Hockey Club will contribute $600,000; the largest single co-contribution from any sporting club in the City.

“The club has a fantastic history of community and it’s because of this strength that Whitford has been able to take the next step to becoming a premier hockey club in WA,” president Len Collier said.

“The fundraising efforts to date have been phenomenal and we need to continue this momentum.”

The dinner will be held at Joondalup Resort from 7pm to midnight, including pre-dinner drinks and a three-course meal.

Television and radio personality Tim Gossage will host the event, with appearances from Hockeyroos coach Adam Commens, Kookaburras coach Graham Reid and some of their Olympic team representatives adding to the excitement.

The night will also include an auction of memorabilia, prize raffles, music and dancing.

Tickets are $100 or $950 for a table of 10.
