The community is invited to a gala night of dance when Cancer Council present Stars of Eurobodalla at the Batemans Bay Soldiers Club on February 26, 2022.
The event will be a COVID-safe night of fun, dancing, food, and spectacular entertainment with 2EC brekky host Kimmi Saker as MC, all in the name of working towards a cancer-free future.
Stars consist of nine local business and community leaders who are learning to dance while raising funds for Cancer Council NSW.
The line-up of stars who will hit the dance floor include:
- Mark Smith from Tribe Cafe
- Dr Anke Dutschke from Moruya Medical Centre
- Mark Ethell from Moruya Waterfront Hotel
- Dean White from Mossy Café
- Clare Lovelace from Soul Tribe Studio
- Christina McPherson from McPherson Parks Lawyers
- Clare Burke from The Nest of Moruya
- Maddy Jeffery from Elders Batemans Bay
- Jessica Williams from Blackshaw Coastal
Stars will perform in front of an impressive judging panel and compete for one of four awards up for grabs: Judges' Choice, People's Choice, Best Costume, and Highest Fundraiser.
The line-up of judges for 2022 will be business owner and local hero, Mathew Hatcher, General Manager of 2EC, Jane Edwards and, last year's highest fundraiser Mick Weyman.
Community relations coordinator at Cancer Council's southern office, Sari Boschiero, said: "Stars of Eurobodalla is a truly unique experience for the Eurobodalla community to get behind their stars who are fundraising for Cancer Council in a fun way while learning something new."
"The aim is to have stars from all areas of the community participate, demonstrating how we can all contribute to the cause," she said.
"With a great line-up of stars on board matched with successful, professional dance teachers from dance schools across Eurobodalla, the gala is going to be a night not to be missed."
She said events like Stars of Eurobodalla ensure that Cancer Council can continue to provide cancer patients and their families in the Eurobodalla Shire with support and information services, such as Home Help, Transport to Treatment, the 13 11 20 Information Support Service, as well as invest in cancer prevention programs, local advocacy and cancer research.
