According to ABC News: “Sydney’s cash-strapped Powerhouse Museum splashed hundreds of thousands of dollars in public funds on a ball attended by models, designers and Foreign minister Julie Bishop.”

“VIP guests on the night donated a total of $1,150 — three gifts of $50 each and one for $1,000. Combined with a portion of ticket sales, the total amount raised was $78,500.”

Andrew Bolt said, “The fundraising is just an excuse for a massive spending on themselves. The fact that just four of those freeloaded donated anything at all speaks volumes.”
