Casey to raise funds for drought affected farmers

Issued Thursday 27 September 2018

The City of Casey will be holding a Casey Cares Mayoral Charity Concert on Sunday 28 October 2018 to raise much needed funds for drought-affected farmers.

The concert, to be held in the Bunjil Place Theatre, will feature a range of local performers.

City of Casey Mayor Cr Geoff Ablett said we will be bringing the best in local entertainment together to raise funds for this worthy cause.

“We all know that our farmers are having a tough time due to the drought and we want to do our bit to support them through this time,” said the Mayor.

“Our previous Casey Cares events have been instrumental in raising much needed funds and we hope this one will be just as successful.”

River Gum Ward Cr Wayne Smith BJ JP said he felt that establishing a charity concert for the farmers would raise awareness within our community of the hardships being faced and also give our community an opportunity to contribute to raising funds.

“We have organised a great line up of performers including Jonathan Welch OAM (of ‘Choir of Hard Knocks’ fame), Allan Caswell (international country music performer/songwriter), Casey Idol and Casey’s Got Talent Winners, as well as local singers and dancers,” said Cr Smith BJ JP.

“All of the performers will be donating their time to support this cause and we hope that our community will get behind the concert and help us raise funds for the farmers.”

Proceeds will be donated to drought relief. Secure your tickets now at the event webpage.
