Dancing for cancer

Dancing for cancer

Stars is a community-driven annual dance gala event at which local business owners and personalities light up the dance floor to raise vital funds for Cancer Council Australia.

Lisa Dixon, wife of GemLife Rainbow Beach Sales Manager Craig Dixon, was nominated by her boss to take part in this year’s Stars of Hastings event on Friday, 17 June at the Glasshouse in Port Macquarie.

With GemLife on board as a bronze sponsor, in addition to a silver sponsorship from her company Elders Real Estate, Lisa is already more than halfway toward reaching her goal of raising $10,000 – with the overall fundraising target for all the contestants being $120,000.

“I teach young girls’ physical culture (a low impact dance and aerobic activity), but this is hugely different, and out of my comfort zone. However, I’m happy to participate since it’s for a good and worthy cause,” said Lisa.

“Rehearsals have already started and it’s exciting,” said Lisa. “I’ve been partnered with a dance teacher from the local dance studio, so we’ll be practising regularly and even have a complete dress rehearsal at the Glasshouse before the main event.”
