Thousands raised for Waugh Foundation

Thousands raised for Waugh Foundation More than $115,000 was raised at this year’s Mayoral Charity Dinner on Friday night. No  

More than $115,000 was raised at this year’s Mayoral Charity Dinner on Friday night.

Mayor Khal Asfour said the 440 attendees enjoyed a three-course dinner, entertainment and a chat with special guest, former Australian Cricket Captain, Steve Waugh, at Bankstown Sports Club.

"It was a fantastic night when the local community, once again, rallied to support a great cause," he said.

"All monies raised will help the Steve Waugh Foundation, which offers support to children and young people with rare diseases."

Mr Waugh was very appreciative of the support.

"It was great to be out there and meeting the locals," he said.

"I want to thank everyone who attended and donated their money to help us continue the work we do.

"Thank you also to the City of Canterbury Bankstown and Mayor Asfour for selecting the foundation."

The money raised is in addition to the more than $1 million which had already been raised at previous Mayoral Charity Dinners 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.

Wendy Corey was a big winner on the night, driving home in a brand new Toyota Yaris, the major prize in the raffle.
