Get dancing for charity
FINE Jazz is coming to Warwick and promises to get you swinging for a good cause.
“In the mood for Bushkids” is a charity jazz night which will be hosted by the Royal Queensland Bush Children’s Health Scheme in the Warwick Town Hall, with profits going towards helping rural Queensland children.
As a non-government organisation, Bush Children’s is dependent on such fundraising events.
“Although we do get some money from the government, we need the community and its support” CEO Cheryl Miller said.
“The money raised will go to support the general service here in our Warwick centre.”
Bush Children’s offers free health service to rural children in Queensland, from birth to the age of 13.
Mrs Miller hopes to raise $6000.
“Mainly it helps us buy resources and pay for electricity and the phone bill for a while,” she said.
“It keeps the doors open and enables us to provide our service.
“Every cent we raise is a cent we didn’t have before and we value every penny.”
Mrs Miller saw the Australian Artillery Band Brisbane play in Warwick last year and is excited to host the band’s return after the success it had last year.
Spectators will listen to a jazz march and a variety type show presented by a 30-piece orchestra, with bandmaster Stephen Mee running the show.
“Our program includes anything from Glenn Miller to Michael Buble,” Mr Miller said.
“The male and female vocalists will orientate the show towards the theme of the week and deliver an unforgettable show.”
The event will take place on Saturday, July 17 at 7pm in the Town Hall, during Warwick’s Jumpers and Jazz Festival.
Tickets are $10 and can be purchased from Warwick Tourism and Events on 4661 9073, or online at www.warwickevents.com.
