On Thursday 22nd June, Maranello Sales held a very special evening at Tower Garage in Egham: an audience with Peter Alliss and Steve Rider.
Peter is widely regarded as the “voice of golf”. He is a former professional golfer, a television presenter and commentator, author, golf course designer and also very well known for his charismatic and unique style of commentary and banter.
Steve, one of the most experienced sports presenters and journalists on British television, has presented 12 summer and winter Olympic games and in 20 years at the BBC was the host of Sportsnight, Grandstand and Sports Personality of the Year. He has also presented international rugby and motor sport events plus over fifty major golf championships.
Customers were treated to a captivating interview with these two fascinating men along with a chance to put forward their own questions in a Q&A.
A silent auction was held during the evening with all proceeds going to the Peter Alliss Masters Charity. Prizes included afternoon tea at Coworth Park, golf at Foxhills Resort and St. Georges Hill Golf Club plus a stay at the beautiful Runnymede-on-Thames hotel.
The Peter Alliss Masters charity – led by patron Peter Alliss, is run entirely by volunteers and exists to raise funds to buy powered wheelchairs for young people with very limited mobility to improve their quality of life.
