A group 0f  men aged 30+ participated in an exciting AFL football match on the Queens Birthday holiday at Princes Park, South Caulfield, to raise money for Jewish Care and Melbourne Jewish Charity Fund (MJCF).

Organisers Reuben Zelwer and a committee of friends, including David Gold, Yoni Paluch and Dion Epstein, enjoyed the camaraderie of the game while playing for a good cause.

“Turning little efforts into superhuman ones” is their mantra and Zelwer says the game achieved just that. All players provided some memorable moments from taking spectacular marks to kicking the un-kickable goal.

A better result could not have been predicted, with the game going down to the wire with an exciting one point victory to the

Jewish Care team defeating MJCF 10.14 (74) to 11.7 (73).

Needless to say, both organisations were winners as they shared in over $3000 of donations raised from the game. Donations were made by the players, their supporters, family and friends.

The organisers hope to make this game an annual fundraising event
