Two of Tuggerah Lakes Police District’s (TLPD) officers and two executives from Wyong Rugby League Club Group, are getting ready to hit the dancefloor as participants in Cancer Council NSW’s 2019 Stars of the Central Coast.
Back for its sixth year, Stars of the Central Coast is an initiative of the Central Coast Branch of the Cancer Council that sees locals paired with a professional dance teacher to raise money for the Cancer Council.
TLPD Senior Constables, Racquel Hassett and Kurt Webb, and Wyong Rugby Leagues Club’s, Cameron Grentell and Brock Molan, have all signed on for this year’s event, which is featuring couples from local organisations for the first time.
The four are the only ones from the former Wyong LGA taking part this year, and they are vying for the top fundraising spot at Laycock St Theatre, on May 3.
Grentell is the Group Operations Manager and Molan the Group Food and Beverage Manager of the Wyong Rugby League Club Group.
Over the years, more than 50 local stars have graced the stage for the Cancer Council, and according to Central Coast branch media officer, Jaynie Moloney, the program has raised over $600,000 over the past five years.
“The best part is all money raised through Stars of the Central Coast stays right here on the Coast to help fund our support services for local cancer patients and their families,” Moloney said.
Local support services that benefit through the event include meal delivery service, support and information, financial counselling, financial and legal advice, support groups, survivorship programs, and prevention and education.
