Auction for Adam Scott signed Gold Bunny
08 Feb 2013
Lindt Australia is participating for the first time in the internationally recognised LINDT GOLD BUNNY Celebrity Auction where porcelain versions of the iconic Lindt Gold Bunny are autographed by celebrities in the entertainment, food, music and sport communities. Lindt then auctions these with all proceeds going to fund The Grace Centre for Newborn Care at The Children’s Hospital at Westmead.
Internationally, stars including Barbara Streisand, Heidi Klum, Sarah Jessica Parker, Ricky Gervais, Harrison Ford, Roger Federer and Rhianna, have all signed bunnies over the years.
This year in Australia, Lindt has chosen some of our highest profile celebrities to take part in the Australian initiative. The following celebrities will be participating and have signed a gold bunny:
Kylie Minogue, Roger Federer, Adam Scott, Alex Perry, Megan Gale, Asher Keddie, Natalie Bassingthwaighte, Ricky Ponting, Ita Buttrose and Richard Roxburgh to name a few. (A full list will be available at the end of February on the Lindt’s Facebook page
“Lindt is proud to continue its association with The Children’s Hospital of Westmead. The signing of the Gold Bunny porcelains by celebrities is not only a great way to raise funds for such a fantastic Hospital but also allows our consumers to have a truly unique Gold Bunny of their own,” says Steve Loane, CEO Lindt & Sprungli Australia.
The porcelain Lindt Gold Bunnies will be auctioned on eBay with bidding starting the week commencing 10th March (the exact details of where on eBay this will take place will be available closer to the time on Lindt’s Facebook page)
All funds raised will go to The Children’s Hospital at Westmead, funding The Grace Centre for Newborn Care (GCNC), a specialist neonatal facility. At The GCNC they care for newborn babies with complex medical conditions and serious cardiac and surgical disorders. Babies are admitted from across NSW, ACT and the Pacific Rim. The GCNC is not a maternity ward, but an intensive care unit for newborn babies during their first month of life. Every year, approximately 600 babies receive treatment at The GCNC. Their work extends into counseling and providing ongoing support, long after a baby has left the Centre.
“We are excited to be partnering with Lindt Australia on the Lindt Gold Bunny Celebrity Auction. The monies raised will help our staff provide the very specialised care these newborn babies need,” says Jannine Jackson, Head of Fundraising at The Children’s Hospital at Westmead.
