2017 family night out gets pinked

Families and friends came together again to rock out under the stars to the sound of PINKED at this year’s Family Night Out Concert held at the Perth Zoo.

It was a popular way for parents to have their kids entertained on March 18 as families gained entry to explore the zoo ahead of the concert kicking off as the sun set. It was a fantastic show – thanks to Samantha and her band and dancers.

We could just imagine the animals having a dance along in their enclosures! But it wasn’t just covers of Pink’s greatest hits and an abundance of animals for people to enjoy. There was so much more.

The entertainment rolled out all evening as Mal and Judi, from Awesome Balloon Creations joined us again to help keep the children (and adults) occupied with temporary tattoos and an amazing bubble machine. For the budding artists in the crowd, Sony Productions supplied an array of colouring-in sheets to keep them busy, and prizes for people to walk away with.

If you were lucky enough, you were picked out from the crowd with family passes to the latest Smurf movie. We hope the winning families enjoyed the movie.

While rain did threaten to dampen the vibes for the evening it held off for the night, which was greatly appreciated by the event organisers. Just when an injection of energy was needed, a gourmet barbecue was served up by Mustard Catering. It was a perfect evening, and great fun was had by everyone.

Events like these don’t happen without volunteers, so a BIG thank you to:

• Kristy, Jonelle & Chris Carlsson
• Georgia Lowry
• Michele & Pat Seymour
• Kylie Dalton and her staff from Absolute Edge Media
• Gary Kearns
• Sarah Felmingham

The date for our 2018 Family Concert is yet to be confirmed, however keep your eyes peeled because it will be an event you don’t want to miss!

Dance for a Cure 2016

Once again, the families of Perth turned out for the Children’s Leukaemia and Cancer Research Foundation’s annual Dance for A Cure event – held in Forrest Place, Perth, on Sunday 30 October 2016.

The Dance was supported by Channel Nine with event Ambassador, Lisa Fernandez, encouraging the community to get involved. Combined with our Patron, Justin Langer, in the official TV commercial, it proved to be a wonderful way for the community to hear about how they could join the Dance for a Cure.

Louise Momber, also from Channel Nine, was able to attend the official day and was very excited by the dancing and the energy the families brought to the event.

“Being involved in Dance for a Cure was such a highlight for me. I loved seeing the happiness on the faces of the participants – knowing they were making a difference to such an important cause and having so much fun at the same time!”, said Louise.

Each year we try to offer the people of Perth something new and fun for families to participate in with a very important message to highlight the need for more research into childhood cancer.

This of course takes lots of dollars and it’s with events like these that we can help fund more research. So the next time you hear about a CLCRF event, get involved and tell your friends because everyone who supports our events supports our research. Stay tuned for the next Dance for A Cure because it will definitely be different and fun!

Hundreds of families from across Perth will come together in Forrest Place in the City of Perth to perform a choreographed dance to help raise awareness for the Children’s Leukaemia & Cancer Research Foundation (CLCRF).

This year’s event will be opened by the recently appointed CLCRF ambassador the Right Honourable Lord Mayor Lisa M.

Lauchlan Bain, an independent Perth choreographer, has taken on the challenge of choreographing the 2015 event, creating all of the dance moves for the general public. This year we are lucky enough to be dancing to Geronimo by Australian band, Sheppard, who are very supportive of this event and have licenced the song to CLCRF for this special occasion.
