Film, music, and art icons lent a proverbial hand to the inaugural Aiding Australia charity on February 23rd 2020, benefiting Australia and its wildlife as they recover from the long-term effects of the horrendous bushfires. Donations for bushfire relief were collected on the night from sponsors and guests through Charitably, Aiding Australia’s 501c3 charity sponsor.

The event was held at the home of Oscar winner John Ottman and hosted by National Arts and Entertainment Journalism Award winner Byron Burton. Ottman and Burton are the co-founders of Awards Focus, which is a key sponsor for Aiding Australia and its forthcoming charity auction.

The incredible auction gallery below constitutes a growing list of handprinted and signed items from our industry’s most talented and generous souls. Check in daily to see new items as we prepare for Aiding Australia’s Virtual Gallery to go live!

The gallery gives fans a chance to bid on some of the rarest memorabilia in existence (no understatement), and all proceeds go to benefit the heroic workers at the Port Macquarie Koala Hospital as well as the Carbargo Community Bushfire Recovery Fund.
