I am writing to express my appreciation of your outstanding contribution to the CARE Australia Dinner on Thursday, May 2. Your efforts during the auction ensured the evening was a great success for CARE Australia.
Sir William DeanChairman, CARE Australia
You have conducted the auction at the Caulfield Cup Calcutta in an exemplary fashion for many years. You extract a pool of approx. $40,000 with very entertaining remarks and accurate auctioneering. In the opinion of most people at the Calcutta you are the finest auctioneer we have ever heard and there are many real estate and country people who attend the auction.

Awesome Night at Hall of Fame
Friday, 12 October 2018
Last night at Crown, 7 new inductees into the Sporting Australia Hall of Fame included Awesome Foursome member Drew Ginn and racing great, Gai Waterhouse… Each year SAHOF also inducts one legend and this year the great Richie Benaud was posthumously inducted as a legend. His award was accepted by his wife, Daphne who delighted the audience with her interview with non other than Bruce McAvaney. Kurt Fearnley won the prestigious Don award. The event was hosted by Sandy Roberts and Nicole Livingston. I was fortunate enough to conduct an auction of one item to raise money for the SAHOF mentoring program which supports up and coming athletes. Such is the success of the mentoring program, many of these young athletes have gone on to represent their country at an international level. Thank you to the team at Nelson Alexander who bought the item. #SAHOF #Hall of Fame #The Don
