The 10th Annual 3AW Rumours Feast, held on Friday 14 August at the Plaza Ballroom, exceeded expectations in what was a terrific afternoon of banter, laughs, music and fun.
And most importantly, the 450 plus guests and sponsors in attendance generously supported the Child Protection Society (CPS), some digging deep to claim the great auction items on offer.
3AW Breakfast hosts Ross Stevenson and his sidekick John Burns – not to mention the rest of the 3AW Breakfast team – were in fine form.
Former Aussie bowler Damien Fleming swung by and regaled the audience with a number of great cricketing stories whilst Herald Sun crime writer Andrew Rule stepped in for John Silvester (who was feeling crook).
RockWiz music guru Brian Nankervis introduced a video he made at the Heidelberg CPS Child & Family Centre which featured the uber-cute kinder age kids answering some of life’s big and small questions. A big thanks to Tom Andronas for doing such a fine job filming and producing the short feature.
CPS CEO Aileen Ashford provided some insight into the vital work undertaken by CPS, relating ‘the journey’ embarked on by a child who had suffered abuse, and who as part of her counselling regularly illustrated her feelings on paper.
Colleen Hewett closed the event in fine style. “If we don’t look after the kids we’re stuffed,” said Hewett matter-of-fact, and her passion for CPS’s cause was reflected in a spine tingling performance which also featured a sing-along with the 3AW team.
3AW operations director Stephen Beers said: “The 10th Annual 3AW Rumours Feast with 3AW’s Breakfast duo of Ross Stevenson and John Burns has become somewhat of an institution on Melbourne’s event calendar. With an audience of more than 450, we have raised in excess of $170,000 for Child Protection Services which is an exceptional result.”
