Charity: Cameron’s R51 000 trunks
21 Sep 2012
THE swimsuit Cameron van der Burgh wore to win Olympic gold has been sold at auction for R51 000.
An unidentified woman bought the world record-setting trunks on Wednesday evening at an auction to raise funds for the charity organisation, Caring Daisies.
The trunks fetched the evening’s highest price, as bidders paid a total of R170 000 to play golf with celebrities including Victor Matfield and singer Bobby van Jaarsveld.
Organiser Anria van Heerden said an anonymous buyer paid R24 000 for a round of golf with former Miss SA Nicole Flint.
The total amount raised was almost R1 million.
