Seven's Tom Williams a fan of Telethon
THE east coast may have its advantages, but Tom Williams says there’s nothing quite like Telethon.
The Seven personality, pictured, flew to Broome to take part in the seventh annual A Weekend for Telethon presented by Hawaiian and Rob Broadfield.
It’s Williams’ second year as part of the major fundraiser, in which nearly 100 prominent Perth businessmen and women enjoy a weekend of luxury, relaxation and decadent food, all in the name of raising much-needed funds for the cause.
Last year’s event raised almost $500,000.
“I love coming here,” Williams told Confidential. “We don’t have anything like this in my home town, no one driving major fundraising for children’s hospitals and sick kids.
“Telethon is a big deal so, coming from the east coast, being able to do whatever I can to drive whatever we can get out of this weekend, it’s great.”
