Jane Hall Donates Melbourne Cup Winnings to Charity

Prince of Penzance may not have been a favourite to win on Melbourne Cup day, but luckily for radio host and actress Jane Hall, he did – and she won more than $50,000!

Sportsbet gave Jane $500 to place on a horse of her choice with a guarantee that all winning proceeds would go to charity.

She was elated on air on Wednesday morning – revealing that her winnings would be going to the Father Bob Maguire Foundation – a Melbourne based charity that offers food and emotional support to the homeless.

Father Maguire – who launched his latest charity initiative in 2003 – joked to Jane that he had been ‘on life support’ since hearing of her win.

‘It would take me at least six months to earn that by begging,’ he said after accepting the donation, which will be divided between food for the poor and education for disadvantaged youths.
