Cowra Stands Up For Flood Relief
The Cowra Civic Centre and Cowra Services Club have both stood up to raise funds for flood victims in Cowra and the Central West by hosting music events at their venues.
The Cowra Civic Centre held its first flood relief show on Sunday, with the ‘Live & Kicking’ show, held in conjunction with Arts Out West.
It featured two heavy metal bands- Dave Webb Project and Whisperhead- from Bathurst and Dubbo respectively. Cowra local Darcy Coates was a part of Whisperhead.
Tickets were free on the day, with cash donations being required upon entry at the Civic Centre.
Live & Kicking will return to the Civic Centre for a second fundraiser this Sun-day, with CJ Stranger and Orange’s Eli Stanford gracing the stage from 2pm. Tickets will again be free for this event, however, donations will again be taken at the door in aid of local flood victims.
‘Kickin’ The Tin’ will be held at the Services Club on Sunday 11th December from 11am, with local musician Marc McLeish rounding up some fellow local musicians to put on a free afternoon of live music.
A raffle will be held to raise funds for flood victims, with all proceeds to be taken by the Cowra Information and Neighbourhood Centre, and redirected straight to flood relief. A full schedule is still being finalised for the event.
“It’s all about lifting community spirits after a tumultuous event,” said Jonathan Lewellyn, Cowra Civic Centre Manager, of the Civic Centre events.
Mr Llewellyn encouraged people to book ahead for this Sunday’s show, as it was expected to be popular.
Meanwhile, there are still some tickets available for this weekend’s Cowra Comedy Festival, hosted by the Cowra Civic Centre.
Mr Lewellyn said there had been some scheduling changes since the event was first announced, with ‘Funny Mummies’ switching from Friday night to Thursday night.
