In particular, the Auction was a resounding success and all the monies raised on the night (in excess of $100,000) will be directly used for the Microsurgery Foundation’s research.

Phil, you absolutely killed them! Tony Leonard said you were far and away the best auctioneer he’d ever seen in action and you made 25% of the total raised by yourself – a great compliment.

Mazda Foundation sets new record!
Saturday, 26 October 2013
The Mazda Foundation set a new fundraising record of over 500k at their annual Ball at Crown last night. With the team at Peter Jones steering the event and anchored by Fox FM’s Hamish and Andy the crowd of near 800 enjoyed singing, dancing and fund raising galore.
New foundation chairman, Martin Benders was thrilled with the result and overwhelmed by the generosity of so many. His wife Julie was also delighted as Martin was top bidder for the Black Sea Pearls.
