For the past seven years, DJ:Plus! Entertainment has been supporting the Northern Beaches Girls Night In. Each year this committee of lovely ladies organises an evening of entertainment and fun for the attendees to raise funds for the Cancer Council which utilises the funds raised for women’s cancer research, prevention and support programs. The annual event has a theme each year and 2017 was the year of the Masquerade Party!
This year’s event was full of elegance, mystique and intrigue. The evening commenced with live music from Outlier, which features Australia’s Got Talent finalist and The Voice contestant, Jay Parrino who played a selection of popular songs from throughout the last few decades. Next up was a game with a prize worth $900.00 run by our MC for the evening, Jack Colwell followed by the Xtend Barre dance troupe, who have also been supporting the evening for the last few years. By this time the ladies were looking forward to dancing, so with the help of Adelaide from Xtend Barre who were teaching the ladies some funky dance steps the dancing started with “Uptown Funk” by Mark Ronson Feat. Bruno Mars. The ladies danced and had fun right up to closing, at which time I was still fielding requests!
Evenings like this however don’t just happen. They are the result of a lot of time, effort and sometimes personal sacrifice by some dedicated individuals who hope to do good for the community at large. The lovely ladies who organise this evening are all beautiful individuals with big hearts – many of them have or have had someone near and dear to them be affected by cancer and work tirelessly to put on this evening each year. So as you read this, please give these ladies a round of applause , but better still, thank them by coming along next time and telling those you know about it.
Lastly thank you all for your generosity in donating, attending this event and making me feel so welcome, I often feel like a thorn amongst a sea of roses, but many of you come up each year to say hello, ask for a photo or are watching me like hawks for when I am about to snap a photo and you suddenly ‘strike a pose’! I appreciate you all and I hope you all enjoy the photographs and videos!
