The 20th Laurier Football Dinner held at the beautiful Lazaridis School of Business & Economics on April 27th was a great success. Thank you to Master of Ceremonies Mike Hogan who did a fantastic job! Also, thank you to Sportsnet Hosts Sid Seixeiro & Donnovan Bennett who had the room engaged and laughing during their segment. The evening was capped off by us honouring the first inductee into Legends of Laurier Football (Laurier Football Hall of Fame) Legendary Coach Gary Jeffries.
