Howard Florey Institute Charity auction

The Howard Florey Institute is holding its first online charity auction to raise funds for brain research and two great cycling prizes personally signed by Australian cycling legend Phil Anderson are up for grabs.

All funds raised from this auction will go directly to the Florey, Australia's leading brain research centre based in Melbourne. The Florey’s scientists are working towards better treatments and cures for a range of brain disorders including dementia, depression, Parkinson's disease, stroke, multiple sclerosis, epilepsy, motor neuron disease, autism, Huntington's disease and schizophrenia.

The auction items are a Giro Atmos Helmet worth $375 donated by Pacific Brands and a jersey donated by Adventure Travel Company. Both items were personally signed by Phil Anderson at the Howard Florey Institute's special screening of Wired to Win: Surviving the Tour de France at IMAX Melbourne on February 28, 2006.

To win these prizes, visit the new charity online auction at and place a bid from Monday, March 6 to Friday, April 7, 2006.
