Event committee member Emma Cooper told the publication that the group left after fundraising formalities were complete. 

‘There was no obligation for them to stay for the after-party,’ she said, adding that she led the group out of the venue after the auction.

Chris reportedly donated two tickets for the Sydney premiere of Thor: Love and Thunder, scheduled to be released in 2022.

The tickets went under the hammer for $60,000, which helped raise a record setting $4.4 million for the Sydney Children’s Hospital foundation.
