Galston, Glenorie and Hills Rural News - - News -

Gal­ston Pub­lic School has an­nounced plans to host a fundrais­ing com­edy night for the school, to be held at the Gal­ston Club on Satur­day 18th June this year. The night will fea­ture pro­fes­sional acts from four well-known Aus­tralian co­me­di­ans, with all pro­ceeds go­ing to the school to buy new books, up­dated tech­nol­ogy and other ed­u­ca­tional re­sources.

The school has a very com­mit­ted and ac­tive Parents and Cit­i­zens As­so­ci­a­tion, who take a keen in­ter­est in fundrais­ing ini­tia­tives as a way to en­hance ed­u­ca­tion at the school.

Spokesper­son for the Fundrais­ing Com­mit­tee, Tanya Koorey, said: “We all want our kids to grow up and learn in the best pos­si­ble en­vi­ron­ment. We are do­ing what­ever we can to help the school pro­vide the best re­sources for our kids’ fu­ture.”

This is the first time Gal­ston Pub­lic School has at­tempted a com­edy night as the school’s main so­cial fundraiser, and the com­mit­tee is very keen to see it be­come a suc­cess.

“We have got a fan­tas­tic line-up of co­me­di­ans, and we are in a lo­cal and friendly venue with great, rea­son­ably-priced food and drinks,” said Tanya. “It should be a great night, es­pe­cially if we can get enough peo­ple to come along and try some­thing a bit dif­fer­ent in their lo­cal area. For $35 peo­ple get to see award­win­ning co­me­di­ans put on a top night of en­ter­tain­ment, at the same time as giv­ing some­thing back to the com­mu­nity through our school.” The line-up in­cludes: • Al De Bene, Co­me­dian of the Year at the L.A. Com­edy

Awards; • Sam Bowring, Fi­nal­ist at the Raw Com­edy Na­tion­als and

per­former on Rove Live and Stand Up Aus­tralia; • Mat Wake­field, who has per­formed at Sydney Com­edy

Fes­ti­val and Sydney Fringe Fes­ti­val; • Joe Comino from Houso’s and Fat Pizza, who has won the

pres­ti­gious Com­edy Court Grand Cham­pion award.

Prin­ci­pal for Gal­ston Pub­lic, Mr Rob Jarvis, said: “This is a great ini­tia­tive from the PandC, and one that makes a huge difference to the re­sources we can of­fer our chil­dren. The com­mit­tee does a won­der­ful job to raise money for the school across many events and so­cial gath­er­ings, and they re­ally do work tire­lessly in our school com­mu­nity to make life bet­ter for our kids. Please do come along to what will be a great night of en­ter­tain­ment.”

Tickets are $35, and the event starts at 8pm on June 18th at the Gal­ston Club on Ar­ca­dia Road, Gal­ston. Food and drinks are avail­able at the venue, and pa­trons are en­cour­aged to come along early to have a meal and drinks be­fore the show.

Tickets can be pur­chased from the web­site: www. com­e­dy­fora­cause.net/gal­ston

The night is for adults only.
