Yesterday, Sony Foundation Australia took over the full line-up of restaurants at Sydney's Woolloomooloo Wharf to host 800 guests for a lunchtime fundraising extravaganza: Wharf4Ward.
The star-studded event raised a staggering $550,000 for Sony Foundation's charity campaign - You Can - to build specialised youth cancer wards across Australia.
Sony Music artists including Natalie Bassingthwaighte, Mark Vincent, Stan Walker and Tim Freedman rocked the wharf and guests were also treated to a special performance from the X Factor finalists.
The event was hosted by supporters from each major network: Channel Seven's Samantha Armytage and Andrew O'Keefe, Nine Network's Peter Overton and Natalie Gruzlewski, and Network Ten's Natarsha Belling and Dr Andrew Rochford. The Live Auction was hosted by a charismatic David Koch.
Other noted guests included Jodi Gordon and Braith Anasta, Ronan Keating, Melissa Doyle, Kerri-Anne Kennerley, Dennis Lillee, Nikki Phillips, Charlotte Dawson, Tom Williams, Lizzy Lovette, Danny Clayton and Steve Waugh.
Sophie Ryan, Chief Executive Officer, Sony Foundation Australia, said: "Wharf4Ward was more than just a fabulous day of food and entertainment, most importantly the 800 guests in attendance helped raise a staggering $550,000 for Sony Foundation's 'You Can' campaign to help young Australians survive cancer. This money will make a measurable difference to the lives of young Australians with cancer".
Guests enjoyed a sparkling Chandon reception followed by lunch at some of Sydney's most celebrated restaurants: Aki's, China Doll, Manta, Otto Ristorante and Kingsley's Steak & Crabhouse. The party continued into the evening at the Rocking Angel Bourbon After Party at Blue Hotel's Water Bar.
