Spearheaded by the Kiama & District Business Chamber, Kiama is to have its own version of FireAid on the afternoon of Australia Day, to raise money for our neighbours to the south.
Donations will be given to the Lake Conjola Community Association, which has undertaken to distribute the money directly within the community.
Council, Destination Kiama, the Kiama Leagues Club and others are working with the Chamber to ensure the success of the free event.
“It’s a great example of how the Kiama community always works together when it comes to helping others in need,” says Chamber President Cameron McDonald.
The number of performers coming on board for Play it forward keeps growing, but at the time of writing includes Chris Sebastian, local band 19 Twenty (fresh from supporting Cold Chisel), Scott McRae & the Sons of Beaches Band and the Paul Green Band.
The event is also being professional produced thanks to the expertise of locals, Brendon Comber and R and R Production Services.
Apart from donation buckets, there will be raffles, auctions and other sorts of novel fundraising ideas.
“Let’s make this the greatest fundraising event Kiama has ever held,” says Cameron.
