Ben Campbell Building Group Sportman’s Charity Dinner

Girls Campus shines for charity dinner

NRL Cowboys House may have farewelled students for end-of-term holidays but the Girls Campus was full of life and laughter for the Ben Campbell Building Group Sportman’s Charity Dinner.

Guests including Ben Campbell, Matthew Bowen and Dale Shearer enjoyed a night of entertainment from the Wulgurukaba Walkabout Dancers, chats with rugby league legends, live auctions and an inspiring interview with House student Krystian.

All profits and fundraising from the evening were generously donated to NRL Cowboys House.

Thank you to Ben Campbell Building Group and all contributors for your support and for making this a fantastic event!

NRL Cowboys House celebrates 2017 with friends…

The valuable contribution of the Friends of NRL Cowboys House was acknowledged in an intimate ceremony celebrating the program’s inaugural year.

Some images used on this page comprise original artwork that has been applied under licence from the copyright owner, Mr Albert Bosen. Cowboys acknowledges Mr Bosen’s assistance, sensitivity and generosity in allowing his artwork to be used in this way.

Cowboys and Johnathan and Samantha Thurston acknowledge the intrinsic value of Indigenous artwork, because it reflects the stories, culture, traditions and customs of Indigenous people. Mr Albert Bosen’s artwork, referred to on this page, is a beautiful example of that value and his sharing, as a custodian and spiritual keeper of the stories, cultural traditions and customs of his people, of his artwork with us is respected and highly valued. Cowboys and Johnathan and Samantha Thurston acknowledge – as should all Australians – that the improper or unauthorised use of Indigenous artwork, in any form, is disrespectful and hurtful to the people represented by that artwork.
