Western Sydney Business Connection's last lunch of the year gave business people a chance to network before the start of another year as well as raise money for Northcott Disability Services.
Held at Oatlands House in Dundas on Wednesday, the business leader lunch featured popular Northcott ambassadors Ben Keyte and Shirley Wong who both spoke of how Northcott had helped their lives.
Both wheelchair bound and Ms Wong communicating via an iPad voice, the young ambassadors told of the support Northcott had given them.
"If not for Northcott, I, we would not be talking to you today," Mr Keyte told the audience.
Both he and Ms Wong spoke of the work Northcott does in supporting people with disabilities to lead full lives.
Mr Keyte gave an impressive account of his active life, in the performing arts as well as wheelchair soccer with the Wanderers.
More than $4000 was raised through a live and silent auction and a raffle.
