‘An evening with Craig Brown and Joe Harper’ has been organised by Aberdeen Football Club’s catering and events partner, Sodexo to raise money in aid of Aberdeen FC Community Trust, the official charity partner of the club. On the evening, guests will have the opportunity to ask the duo questions during an informal chat hosted by the charity’s trustee, Steve Innes.
From 1993 to 2001, Brown was the manager of the Scottish national side. During this time, he was at the helm for 70 international matches, more than any other Scotland manager, and led the team to the Euros in ‘96 and the World Cup in ‘98. Following stints at Preston North End and Motherwell, Brown took charge at Aberdeen in December 2010, where he remained until his retirement at the end of the 2012-13 season. Harper had two spells at Aberdeen, the first from 1969 to 1972 during which he helped the Dons lift the Scottish Cup. He returned in 1976 for a further four years and remains the club’s all-time top goal scorer.
Guests will be greeted with an arrival drink and invited to dine in the ASI Suite, with a two-course meal using locally sourced produce and created by Sodexo’s chefs especially for the event.
Attendees will tuck into a main of slow cooked Scottish blade steak served with a rich red wine sauce, fondant potatoes and root vegetables followed by sticky toffee pudding with vanilla ice cream and salted caramel sauce.
In addition to the duo answering guests questions, after dinner there will be a live auction and raffle with an array of prizes up for grabs.
Stephanie Hoare, Sales Manager at Aberdeen Football Club, said: “We are thrilled to be hosting ‘An evening with Craig Brown and Joe Harper’ at Pittodrie. Our chefs have been working hard to create the menu for the event and we all look forward to welcoming guests on the evening to raise money for this worthwhile cause.”
Tickets for ‘An evening with Craig Brown and Joe Harper’ can be purchased for £35 per person.
