Watch as these personalities dance the night away
Stars of the Beaches is a fun and entertaining dance fundraiser and gala dinner run by the Cancer Council NSW.

It is now in its third year and has so far raised over $180,000. Now they will be back again for 2019 with a whole new team of local Northern Beaches personalities who are ready to perform all in the name of raising money for cancer!

The stars consist of business and local community leaders, who will learn to dance in just 8 weeks! They will do this with the help of some extremely talented dance teachers from Tempo Red Studios and Arthur Murray Brookvale.

These stars will put on their dancing shoes to attempt a series of challenges, learning to dance and raising valuable funds. They will be competing for three titles:

Judges choice
People's choice
Highest fundraiser

You as the audience will have a night of fun, dancing, food, raffles, auctions and spectacular entertainment all in the name of raising money and therefore working towards a cancer-free future.

Currently, there is one in every two Australians who are diagnosed with cancer by the age of 85. The money raised from this event will go towards Cancer Council NSW and their world-class cancer research. As well as research, they also look at prevention programs, advocacy, and support services to help those people who are affected by cancer.

The event will be held at the Dee Why RSL, The Jenkins Room, 932 Pittwater Rd, Dee Why. It will be held on Friday 24th May, 2019 from 6.30 pm to 12.00 am.

This event is set to make local celebrities and community leaders step out of their comfort zones as they learn to dance! They will need to learn a whole routine and perform it live in front of an audience of more than 300 people.

In collaboration with Tempo Red Academy of Performing Arts and Arthur Murray Dance Studios, ten local stars were randomly assigned a dance genre to learn and perform at the gala night. Those celebrities include the following:

Roslyn Harrison (Frenchs Forest Ward councillor)
Jess Lynch (Entertainment reporter, 10 Daily)
Stuart Smithies (Director, Vision personal training)

Donna Colby (Drama & careers teacher, Manly selective campus)
Milly MacManus (Budgy Smuggler store assistant)
Yvette Duthie (Pilates instructor)
Peter Hilyard (In2Swim program coordinator)
Christy Luft (Real Estate property assistant)
Patricia Byrne (Northern Beaches community volunteer)
Michael Greenberg (Marketing coordinator, Bizversity)

The stars have already begun their training and are working towards reaching their fundraising targets. They are also working at getting one of the awards mentioned above!

Hannah Moore, Community Relations Coordinator at Cancer Council's Metro Sydney office said "she is excited to see what this year's line-up of Stars have in store for us all. Stars of the Beaches is a once in a lifetime opportunity for local heroes to live out their dream of taking to the stage and performing as a Star!"

The aim of this function is to have people from all areas of the community participate. This will demonstrate how we can all contribute and make a difference. This year, they are bigger and stronger and there will be more fun and more entertainment for a great cause. The aim of this is to raise $100,000 for cancer.

Tickets are $130 each or $1,300 for your table of 10 people.

Ticket includes a dinner and drinks package with the show. If you are not purchasing a full table (less than 10 guests), you will be seated on tables with other guests as required.

Included as well will be a night of dancing, entertainment, prizes, raffle, auction and more as the stars dance the night away in a bid to be the next Star of the Beaches. To make your bookings, click on this link.
