Anthony lends hand

DO you think you are smarter than a footballer?

Or can you play mini-golf better than rugby league star Anthony Minichiello?

Well, here's your chance to find out the answers to both questions - Minichiello will be at the House With No Steps at Alstonville on the weekend of November 26 and 27.

He will be in town to show his support for Summerland House Farm, a business enterprise of HWNS.

Minichiello is an accomplished athlete, playing for the Sydney Roosters since 2000, the NSW Origin side and as an Australian Test representative.

He is now the captain of the Italian side and is proud to have recently helped his team secure the last, highly sought-after spot in the 2013 Rugby League World Cup.

Despite this successful sporting career, Minichiello is still down-to-earth and community-minded.

That's why he is spending a weekend at Alstonville to help raise money to create employment for local people with disabilities.

Summerland House Farm is focused on supporting disadvantaged people on the Northern Rivers.

It also promotes healthy food alternatives and experiences.

As part of its fundraising program, the Farm is hosting an Anthony Minichiello Trivia Night - affectionately titled, "Are you smarter than a footballer?", on November 26.

Starting at 5.30pm and continuing until about 9pm, Minichiello will host the event and there will be plenty of prizes on offer.

Entry price of $50 per adult and $25 per child (12 and under) includes a three-course meal.

The next day, November 27, join Minichiello and the HWNS team for a day of rides, music, cooking demonstration and the opening of the new mini-golf course.

There will also be market stalls and much more from 9am until 3pm. Entry is gold coin donation.
