Unreserved Celebrity ‘Big Bash’ Jerseys for Charity Auction
A number of worn and signed celebrity jerseys will be going up for auction this weekend as a part of the Celebrity Big Bash Event raising money for the Preston Campbell foundation.
16 celebrities will be taking the field in a T20 game of cricket to raise much needed funds for the Preston Campbell foundation to develop programs and opportunities which inspire and mentor participants to achieve their aspirations and dreams.
Some of the celebrity jerseys going up for auction include Preston Campbell, Luke Bradnam, Trevor Butler, Spida Everitt and many other famous Gold Coast names.
Each of the jerseys will be worn during the cricket game and will then be signed by the celebrities when the match is finished.
