Claims that Chris Hemsworth and Elsa Pataky failed to bid during charity auction slammed as ‘false’


Claims that Chris Hemsworth and Elsa Pataky ‘failed to bid on ANYTHING’ during charity auction at Gold Dinner slammed as ‘completely false’

Reports that Chris Hemsworth and his wife Elsa Pataky ‘failed to bid’ at a charity auction at Thursday’s Gold Dinner have been slammed as ‘false’. 

In a statement to Daily Mail Australia on Sunday, Gold Chair Monica Saunders-Weinberg said, ‘Our mission this year was to not only raise as much money as possible but to shine a light on this year’s beneficiary – Mental Health which is a crisis that effects far too many children and adolescents. 

‘I was personally blown away by the genuine enthusiasm and willingness to give back from pledges, to donations to silent auction bidding. We wanted to push past anything previously achieved and we did just that on every level.

‘The record-breaking funds of $5 million (and still counting) raised at this year’s Gold Dinner are a testament to the generosity and spirit of all our wonderful guests and any press statements to the contrary are completely false.’

The comments came after a new report claimed the Hollywood power couple failed to make any bids at the event’s charity auction, despite their combined net worth of $180million.

The charity was put on to raise money for the Sydney Children’s Hospital foundation. 

‘It got really awkward because everyone kept looking at them to put up their hands and they didn’t,’ an insider who attended the Gold Dinner alleged to Emerald City on Sunday.

Jeremy Bond, grandson of business tycoon Alan, was the highest bidder of the night, dropping a five-figure sum at the auction, the source said.  

Chris did reportedly donate two tickets for the Sydney premiere of his new movie, Thor: Love and Thunder. 

The tickets went under the hammer for $60,000, according to the Sydney Morning Herald, and helped raise a record setting $5million for the Sydney Children’s Hospital foundation. 

Event committee member Emma Cooper told the publication that the Hemsworths did a fantastic job of raising money for the good cause.

‘They stayed until the end of the pledges and did an amazing job of making the night a huge success,’ she said.

‘There was no obligation for them to stay for the after-party,’ she added.

Unlike the glittering array of stars that made an appearance at the exclusive soiree, Chris and his group opted to skip the red carpet and slip into the fundraiser unannounced.
