Nominations are now open for the 2020 Stars of the Central Coast campaign.
The campaign is a fundraising event that sees Central Coast residents, business leaders and public figures partnered with a professional dancer to raise funds for the Cancer Council.
The campaign culminates in a grand performance at Gosford’s Laycock St Theatre and in the six months the campaign runs, the participating ‘stars’ are challenged to learn a full dance routine whilst battling it out to raise the most funds.
The campaign is coordinated by the Central Coast Branch of the Cancer Council and has seen more than 60 Central Coast locals raise over $800,000 for the cancer charity since its inception six years ago.
The 2019 campaign saw the local stars compete as couples for the first time and was one of the most successful campaigns yet, raising more than $120,00.
Cancer Council NSW Central Coast Branch Community Relations Coordinator, Jaynie Moloney, is calling for nominations.
“Stars of the Central Coast is a fantastic journey of fun, fundraising and jazz hands.
“If you think you know somebody who would make a fantastic community star for our 2020 line up, we would love to hear from you.
“Star nominees must be passionate community or industry leaders, with strong networks, who would be up for the challenge to jump outside of their comfort zone to fundraise, dance and make a huge difference in the lives of cancer patients and their families,” Ms Moloney said.
Nominations can be made by contacting the Central Coast branch of the Cancer Council.
