Rebel Wilson Raises $100K for Australian Bushfire Relief by Auctioning Off Private Lunch Date

When attending Pacific Fair Magic Millions Polo on the Gold Coast, the ‘Cats’ actress jokes that the bidders will ‘be the first ones to christen my new dining table.’

AceShowbizRebel Wilson raised $100,000 (£76,373) to help those affected by bushfires in her native Australia by auctioning off a private lunch date.

While attending Sunday’s, January 05, Pacific Fair Magic Millions Polo on the Gold Coast, the Cats star took bids for the special engagement, which raised a total of $100,000 to aid those fighting the ongoing crisis.

Two separate bids were made at $50,000 (£38,187), and the star chose to accept both for a joint prize.

She told the audience at the event: “You’ll be the first ones to christen my new dining table. The house has just been finished.”

While the “Pitch Perfect” actress owns more than $17 milllion (£13 million) in property across the globe, it is believed the luncheon will be hosted at her $3.76 million (£2.9 million) Birchwood waterfront property in Sydney, which underwent a $900,000 (£687,357) renovation last year (19).
