<p>Sydney, Australia - December 13, 2005 - Australia’s biggest corporate initiative, The Classic Week (www.theclassicweek.com), takes place 15th to 18th December at the Hyatt Regency in Sanctuary Cove. Now in its 10th year, the event brings together Australia’s business leaders and celebrities to support three very important Australian charities and enjoy a long weekend of top-flight sports and entertainment, as well as the prestigious ‘Q’ Ball.</p>
<p>Major sponsor InFocus will be showcasing three of its flagship InFocus 777’s at the event to bring the concert performances of Delta Goodrem, Vanessa Amorosi and Marcia Hines to larger than life in glorious colour. The InFocus 777 is the company’s three-chip DLP home cinema projector that brings the performance of commercial digital cinema to the home theatre connoisseur.</p>
<p>Lee Whincup, country manager of Australia and New Zealand, says: “InFocus is delighted to be supporting this world-class event, which does so much to raise money for children’s health charities such as the Delta Goodrem Lymphoma &amp; Leukaemia Research Unit, The Royal Children’s Hospital Brisbane and RACQ CareFlight.”</p>
<p>The event offers some of the finest sporting experiences available in Australia, with 1,500 keen golfers vying to gain a place in The Classic Weekend’s annual golf final headed up by Adam Scott. Hundreds of spectators are expected for the celebrity tennis Pro Am’ tournament featuring Alicia Molik, Scott Draper, George Gregan and Sam Stosur, whilst Olympic Gold Medallist Natalie Cook will host a beach volleyball tournament. $7million worth of prestige boats will also attend from Riviera and host a marlin-fishing tournament daily.</p>
