Established in 2010, the Carlton Football Club Bequest Society has proved to be a wonderful forum connecting lifelong Carlton supporters and their families with Carlton greats from the past and present.
Our Bequest Society patron, Carlton Legend Geoff Southby, warmly welcomes our Society members at two distinctively themed functions each year, which are free of charge.
The first function is held in the January school holidays, when Bequest Society members are invited to bring along their children and grandchildren to meet current day players. There’s the opportunity for photographs and autographs, as well as the chance to have a kick on the hallowed turf of Visy Park. Of course, Captain Carlton is also on hand to join in the activities!
The second function is held mid year, and is more a celebration of the glory periods of yesteryear. Bequest Society members enjoy lunch with Carlton identities, hear their stories, and have the chance to take photos with their heroes and the premiership cups. Mike Fitzpatrick, Greg Williams and Mil Hanna are among the Carlton greats who have attended the function to date, while Michael Malthouse has offered insights into the team’s plans and progress.
If you are interested in becoming a Bequest Society member, please contact the Club on 9387 1400.
