A testimonial for Leicester Tigers prop Marcos Ayerza opens with a celebratory dinner at Welford Road on Thursday, October 9.

The event will feature contributions from Ayerza’s colleagues at club and international level, with Tom Croft, Tom Youngs, Geoff Parling, Gonzalo Camacho and Dan Cole among the special guests.
The dinner will also raise funds for local charity Hope Against Cancer, which is one of the  testimonial’s charities, along with Affinity Trust and The Matt Hampson Foundation.
A testimonial brochure, including comments from Martin Castrogiovanni, Louis Deacon, Graham Rowntree, Richard Cockerill and many others, and a commemorative shirt will also be revealed on the night.
Tickets are still available, individually and as tables of 10. Tickets include a three-course meal with half a bottle of wine per person, a copy of the testimonial brochure and are priced at £65 per person.
Further events planned for the year include a Captains Dinner at Hemswell Court in Lincoln, featuring Louis Deacon, Ed Slater, Geordan Murphy and Martin Corry.
The Ladies Night is on Wednesday, December 3. The theme this year is Tigers Big Reunion (in the style of the ITV2 show).
Three events have also been confirmed in London for 2015 including a Six Nations evening on February 11, a Sportsman’s Dinner with guests from the England squad on March 25 and a World Cup preview on April 17 featuring Lewis Moody, Rory Underwood, Julian Salvi, Craig Newby and other special guests.

Ayerza made his Tigers debut in September 2006 and is approaching 200 appearances for the club, as well as passing 50 caps for Argentina this season.
