James Packer guest of honour at Victor Chang Cardiac Research Institute fundraiser - The Daily Telegraph - 4th July 2009

Wearing his heart on his sleeve James Packer is to raise his philanthropic profile by making a rare public speech as guest of honour at the Victor Chang Cardiac Research Institute fundraiser next month.

His late father, Kerry Packer, was a past patron and mother Ros is a current board member of the high-profile heart disease research institute.

While Packer Snr made it a personal mission to raise money for causes he and Ros supported - especially the Chang institute - this will be the first time that James has stepped into such an active role.

The billionaire has maintained a low profile of late as he has focused on expanding his Crown gambling empire in Macau.

James will attend the charity do on August 1 with wife Erica. (Credit: The Daily Telegraph)
