Sydney Swans champion and Toyota ambassador Adam Goodes has auctioned off his Toyota Prius V with the help of the AFL and Toyota to raise a huge $27,300 for his charity, the GO Foundation. The auction ran during Indigenous Round and gave fans the opportunity to buy a fantastic car, support a great cause and own a one-of-a-kind piece of footy memorabilia.

The lucky auction winner, Sydneysider Ian Hung, placed the high bid through the AFL Store website and now gets to drive home in the Australian of the Year’s car, which comes personally signed by Goodes and even includes his signed Indigenous Round jersey to sweeten the deal.

Goodes said he was delighted with the money raised.

“It’s a great result. We had plenty of generous bidders and in the end, thanks to the support of Toyota, one lucky fan has scored a brilliant footy collectible and we raised a huge total for a cause that’s very close to my heart. I couldn’t be happier”, said Goodes.

All money raised from the sale went to Goodes’ charity The GO Foundation, which he started back in 2009 with retired Swans team mate Micky O’Loughlin. The foundation is doing fantastic work to make a positive impact on the lives of young indigenous Australians through self-empowerment, education and employment.
