Sydney Swans legends and GO Foundation founders Adam Goodes and Mick O’Loughlin are raising funds for the GO Foundation through an online auction of hand painted Sherrins.

You can own a stunning Sherrin ball hand painted by one of Australia’s most-loved First Nations artists from Nations around Australia including Ngunawal, Ngarrindjeri, Jaru, Larrakia, Karajarri, Kaurna, Narungga, Ngarrindjeri, Wiradjuri, Noongar and Saibai Island. 

The balls tell stories of Country, Community and coming together across Australia.

A Sherrin painted by one of GO’s own staff members Ashlie Rogers tells the story of the GO Foundation and Adam and Michael playing football together, then coming together to start the Foundation.

The GO Foundation supports students to build strength in culture and achieve success in education. All money raised from the sale of the balls will help provide GO Foundation public school scholarships for First Nations kids.

GO is creating the next generation of First Nations role models, providing scholarships and cultural mentoring for primary, secondary and tertiary students in Sydney, Canberra and Adelaide. You can support this great cause and own one of these stunning works.

Artists have donated their works to the GO Foundation to be auctioned over the next week. Bidding closes on Friday 12 August as 2:30pm (AEST).

‘Education is the most powerful tool. It allows me to unlock so many opportunities and changes my potential. If every Indigenous person had the opportunities I had it could change the world.’ Lua Pellegrini, GO Scholar.
