The IT Industry has rallied together to raise more than $210,000 for Queensland flood victims.
More than 800 delegates - including some rugby union greats - all had one aim to raise funds for Queensland's flood victims.
The event, held at the Grand Ballroom, Star City Casino, Sydney, sold out 86 tables in five days.
The organisers included IT industry veteran John Walters, Cisco's Tony Wright, and David Henderson.
Australian rugby union legends Rocky Elsom, Mark Ella, Bob Dwyer, Peter Fitzsimons and Nick Farr-Jones also attended.
After pre-show drinks everybody got down to serious business, raising funds through a trivia quiz, raffle and auction.
Entertainment during the lunch included Murray Hartin the Bush Poet, and Chris ‘Budda’ Handy.
