Yesterday’s hot and sunny day provided the perfect backdrop for the Sony Foundation’s annual Wharf4Ward event, which raises money for youth cancer. Colourful balloons and a blue carpet lined Woolloomooloo Wharf and all the restaurants opened their doors for TV stars, executives and media dining and donating at the spectacular lunch event. Sony Music’s stable of artists were on hand to perform, including Justice Crew, Jessica Mauboy and Timomatic, with a surprise performance from international guests Hot Chelle Rae. The remaining finalists on The X Factor also sang for the crowd, busting out a rendition of Carly Rae Jepsen’s “Call Me Maybe.” It wasn’t just about celebrities, entertainment and delicious food through, as companies generously donated to You Can through silent auctions — $520,000 was raised! There were also inspirational testimonies from young cancer patients such as Australian paralympian Chris Bond. Other stars who came out for the cause include a Lanvin-clad Natalie Bassingthwaighte, Luke Jacobz, Karl Stefanovic and Kerri-Anne Kennerley.
