Star-studded charity event raises $350,000 for spinal cord injury research
The first ever Queenstown auction event hosted by The CatWalk Trust has raised over $350,000, helping to fund pioneering research into treatment for spinal cord injuries.
The charity auction was held at AJ Hackett Kawarau Bridge Bungy Centre on Saturday 25 April and included a range of desirable and exclusive experiences and items. The major prize of the night was lot 16, which took the top bid of $100,000 for a service fee to the international champion racehorse, Brazen Beau. This lot and a further two prizes were generously donated by the event’s major sponsor, Godolphin.
Catriona Williams, former international equestrian rider, a C6/C7 tetraplegic, and founder of The CatWalk Trust was delighted by the event’s success.
