Dancing for a Cause
Local resident Rebecca Monin is preparing to put on her dancing shoes as a contestant in this year’s Stars of Parramatta – Dance for Cancer, a fundraising gala night taking place at Parramatta RSL on Saturday 27th July, raising funds for and supporting the Cancer Council.
“My workplace was approached by the Cancer Council, asking for any interest. Several colleagues and I put our hands up and I was lucky enough to be asked to compete in Stars of Parramatta.
“I thought it was a great opportunity to try and raise much needed money for the Cancer Council, while challenging and taking myself well and truly out of my comfort zone. Daunting yes but so far, a lot of fun. I’ve lost countless friends and family, including my beautiful mum to Cancer. I jumped at the chance to dance for Cancer and raise as much money as possible, in memory of all those we’ve lost from this awful disease” Rebecca told the Glenmore Gazette.
Rebecca has been given the Jazz Foxtrot dance to perform in the competition. She has been having dance lessons at Arthur Murray Dance Studio in Parramatta with talented teachers Connor and Daniel, who are assisting with the choreography.
She has also organised a Family Fun Night at Inflatable World in St Marys on Saturday 13th July from 5:00pm to 8:00pm. Entry will be $15 per person for three hours of inflatable fun. On the night will be a BBQ, cakes, slices and treats for sale for dessert and a raffle including prizes such as a night’s accommodation for two at the Parramatta Holiday Inn, Gold Class tickets, gift cards and more. The venue has been kindly donated for the event thanks to Keith from Inflatable World.
