Guest Speaker

Gavin Robertson

Former Australia test cricketer Gavin Robertson was diagnosed with brain cancer in May 2019 and operated on by Prof Charlie Teo. Robbo, as he’s fondly known, is a sports radio host on 2SMs Talkin Sport show and has been part of the GWS Giants since day one. Hear from the man himself on the night as he opens up about his battle with brain cancer and how he’s beating the odds.


A fun and exciting part of the evening is our pledge drive.

The auctioneer will be accepting your public pledges in a fast paced, highly energetic fundraising activity. You can also make a private pledge.

Without your generous donations we could not continue funding brilliant brain cancer researchers.


We will have a variety of high-end luxury goods and money can't buy experiences on offer.

Whether you're interested in exquisite jewels, a fantastic Australian getaway, or dining locally with Charlie and your favourite celebs and sporting stars, there will be something for everyone.

Tickets will be available to purchase online at the event and the draw will take place later on in the evening. There will be limited tickets so more chances to win.
