Few in the room were unfamiliar with the name 'Joffa' though many were unaware with the story behind this uniquely Melbourne character - Jeff 'Joffa' Corfe. Arguably the most high-profile Collingwood supporter in current times, 'Joffa' shared fascinating stories of his life, his important ambassadorial roles and his profile in the media.

Joffa is a proud ambassador of the Epilepsy Foundation - you can learn more about their work or support them with a donation HERE.

The August luncheon featured a new Tripe-based entree and main course (below) designed by the fine chefs of the RACV Club, alternating with the traditional main dish and followed by an array of cheese and refreshments. Thank you to Chef Craig for joining guests to discuss the formation of the menu.

Joffa: Isn't That Life? will be available for purchase and signing at the luncheon - you can read about the book at Busybird Publishing.
