Sporting and humanitarian icon returns home

Sporting and humanitarian icon returns home Aussie cricketing legend, Steve Waugh, will return home to be the special guest at this year’s Mayoral Charity Dinner. No  

Aussie cricketing legend, Steve Waugh, will return home to be the special guest at this year’s Mayoral Charity Dinner.

The event, to be held at Bankstown Sports Club on Friday 17 August, will see all proceeds going to the Steve Waugh Foundation, which supports children and young adults with rare diseases across Australia.

Waugh, a Bankstown boy, who played his junior and grade cricket at Memorial Oval, said he was first inspired to get involved with charity work, after meeting Mother Teresa during a cricketing tour of India.

"When I retired from cricket in Australia, I wanted to set up a charity which looked after kids who had courage and character; who were doing it tough and fighting against the odds," he said.

"We look after kids who sometimes have no-one else in their corner. We aim to stand beside them.

"It brings great satisfaction to see them, not only get opportunities in life, but also survive and thrive with the equipment and medications we provide."

Mayor Khal Asfour encouraged residents and business leaders to get in early to purchase tickets.

"This will be a rare opportunity to see and meet Steve, and help him make a real difference through his work in Canterbury-Bankstown and Australia," Mayor Asfour said.

Waugh said he was very grateful the Mayor has chosen his charity as the recipient of all proceeds raised on the night.

"It’s a very generous offer and we’re looking forward to the event," he said.

Guests will enjoy a three-course dinner, raffles, entertainment and more on the night. Tickets are $200 per person. For booking information, visit

More than $1 million has been raised at the annual dinner over the past decade, for charities such as Save Our Sons, Little Wings, Youth Off The Streets, the children’s wards at Canterbury and Bankstown Hospitals and Foundation for Angelman Syndrome Therapeutics Australia.
