Scores of insurance professionals joined some NSW rugby league luminaries last Wednesday night for a Ricky Stuart Foundation charity auction at Zurich’s Sydney headquarters.
Hosted by Channel 9 presenter Ben Fordham, guests on the night included Steve Roach, Paul Sironen, Ben Elias and Mark Coyne.
Inspired by his own family’s experiences with autism, the Ricky Stuart Foundation aims to raise awareness of the condition and funds for care.
Items auctioned on the night included a corporate box at the third State of Origin game, a round of golf with former Australian cricket captain Mark Taylor and lunch for five with Jordan Belfort, former stockbroker and subject of the upcoming Martin Scorsese film The Wolf of Wall Street.
Guests on the night managed to raise $90,000, far surpassing the $50,000 target.
