Dancing with the stars
PEOPLE from all walks of life will strap on their dance shoes and pull on their costumes all in the name of a good cause on Friday, November 8, at C.ex Coffs.
Inspired by the popular television dance shows, Stars of Coffs Coast has proven a popular fundraising event for the local Cancer Council.
Cancer Council Coffs Coast Community Relations Co-ordinator Brittany Raven said the event sees nine high profile Coffs Coast business people team up with local dance teachers to learn a choreographed dance routine. She said there would be a variety of dance styles and entertainment on the night including a surprise Elton John twist.
"It's so exciting to unveil the line-up of Stars and Dancers for the 2019 event," Brittany said.
"This will be the ninth Stars event held now in Coffs Harbour, it has been so well received by the community and the new team of stars have all been very gracious in accepting the challenge to learn to dance for a great cause."
"Three prizes will be awarded on the night; judge's choice, people's choice voted by the audience and a highest fundraiser award.
"There will also be food, auction and much more!"
Brittany said as well as dancing the "stars" have undertaken to fundraise for Cancer Council as part of their involvement.
She said the event as much about raising funds for cancer research, services and prevention programs in the area as it was about raising awareness of cancer in the community.
"Funds raised will continue to provide local patients with access to pro bono legal and financial assistance schemes as well as our Transport to Treatment service which helps local people get to and from their appointments," Brittany explained.
