One of Canberra’s most high-profile social events – The Ricky Stuart Foundation Celebrity Pro-Am – shows no signs of slowing down. Talking to 2GB’s Continuous Call Team yesterday, the former Raider’s captain and dual-international gave details of what looks to be the biggest event yet.

As a major fund-raising initiative of his foundation, the Pro-Am raises much-needed money to support families across the region that are living with autism.



Clearly, this is a very well-run event. Now in its sixth year, major sponsor, Ausbrokers, proud to sponsor a charity golf day like no other. Brendan Jones, Australian pro-golfer (and winner of last year’s Japan Open), agrees that this is a great day to get behind.

“As a professional golfer, I’ve played in a quite a few of these charity golf days around the country and it is by far the best that I have ever played in,’’ he told The Daily Telegraph.

This year brings more fun than last year. One hole features a DJ, while the hole-in-one prize in $500,000. If your golf swing isn’t that accurate, there is also the chance to win a Jaguar valued at $86,000 or meet-and-greet tickets for a Billy Joel concert at Madison Square Garden.



The event takes place on Tuesday 20 February at Royal Canberra Golf Club and promises to attract a wide range of high profile golfers. According to The Daily Telegraph, celebrities confirmed for the event include Kerri-Ann Kennerley, former jockey Jimmy Cassidy, boxing’s Daniel Geale, Nine reporter Erin Molan, comedian Vince Sorrenti, former All Black Andrew Mehrtens, former tennis pro Wally Masur, 2GB and Nine funnyman Darryl Brohman and former Wallaby George Gregan.
