John Thornett (49)
Also very sad news coming from the Souths community. If anyone saw the rugby club they would have seen this. I hope the wider rugby community donates and helps out. Our hearts go out to the Ongolea family and the Souths rugby community. Unfourtunately Mel passed away two days ago.
Mel-O Cocktail Gala Evening - 7th July
In partnership with Souths Rugby Union, the Ongolea family will be holding a cocktail evening on 7th July 2012, at Souths Clubhouse.
Sapa Ongolea and his wife Mel are long standing members of Souths, where Sapa continues to be an active and avid player. Earlier this year in January, Mel (33) was diagnosed with an aggressive form of Melanoma. Currently, Mel is at home surrounded by her loving family and enjoying precious time with their two little boys, Isaac (3) and Joseph (6mths).
Due to medical schedules and caring for their young children, the family is confronted by financial challenges. The funds raised from this night will be used to cover medical costs and other out of pocket expenses.
As you can imagine this beautiful young family need all the love and support we can give…
Please come and support this special event and make a night of it with family and friends!!
