The Cromwell Property Group Foundation will donate $25,000 to the Alzheimer’s Australia Dementia Research Foundation after successfully auctioning two unique rugby jerseys signed by all eight Rugby World Cup winning captains.
The jerseys were the subject of a silent auction held during the recent 2015 Rugby World Cup tournament. Clients and guests of Cromwell, Valad Europe, Redefine Properties and Redefine International attended pre-match events alongside a number of ex-Wallabies including John Eales, Nick Farr-Jones, Phil Kearns and David Campese. All Black’s prop Tony Woodcock, former head coach Graham Henry and Eric Rush also participated.
Cromwell’s Chief Operations Officer, Jodie Clark commented, “The generosity shown by all auction bidders in support of the Foundation was very much appreciated.”
“After discussions with the winning bidders it was decided that the funds raised should be directed towards combating Alzheimer’s. We are now in discussions with Alzheimer’s Australia to identify suitable projects to contribute to”, she added.
