boxer Danny Green, former Wallaby John Welborn, rugby great Adrian Skeggs, Shane
Woewodin, and many others.

With all proceeds going to the Breast Cancer Foundation of WA, participating sports stars
and personalities are giving of their time on the evening for this worthwhile cause. The
organisers welcome media interest, but would reiterate the primary objective of the evening
is to raise funds for and awareness of Breast Cancer and how early detection saves lives.

Over 200 sports-loving business leaders have paid to be in attendance, to hear the
interviews and panel conversation, and to bid for 12 amazing auction items kindly donated by
generous supporting organisations, and which "money can't buy". These include a host of
rare treats including hard-to-get sporting memorabilia, and priceless
