Join Hammers greats and support DT38 Foundation!

Dylan Tombides

 

Carlton Cole, Steve Lomas, Christian Dailly, Mile Jedinak, former Academy Director Tony Carr and Ian ‘Moose’ Abrahams will join West Ham United supporters for an evening of good food, fine wine and stories in aid of DT38 Foundation.

The event, which will feature a bespoke three-course meal paired with a selection of wines, will be held at The Cow, just a few hundred metres from the Hammers’ London Stadium home, on Wednesday 7 November.

The evening was the brainchild of Tracy Tombides, who founded DT38 Foundation after her son Dylan lost his life in April 2014 at the age 20, having initially been diagnosed with testicular cancer following a random doping test three years previously.

DT38 Foundation is committed to raising awareness of the disease which took Dylan’s life, with the message that early detection can save lives.

Carr, who oversaw the Australian striker’s development through the Academy of Football, Cole, who played and trained alongside a young Tombides, and former West Ham captains Lomas and Dailly will all be on hand to share tales of Dylan and life inside the club they served with such distinction.

Aston Villa’s former Australia skipper Jedinak was Crystal Palace captain when they faced West Ham on the day following Dylan’s death and has since become a staunch supporter and ambassador for DT38 Foundation.

Host Abrahams is well-known to Hammers fans for his role as football correspondent on radio station talkSPORT.

Tickets for this unique event, which kicks-off at 7pm, are priced at £65 per person and include a three-course meal and wine.
