Wax on, wax off for char­ity

Whitsunday Times - - LOCAL NEWS -

PEO­PLE lit­er­ally tore strips off each other at Cape Glouces­ter on Sun­day night.

The Cook­town Cru­saders were at it again last week­end, stop­ping over at Cape Glouces­ter Re­sort as part of their an­nual ride to Cook­town, rais­ing funds for Autism Queens­land.

The Cru­saders hosted a wax­ing auc­tion, with peo­ple pay­ing money to rip wax strips off cer­tain hairy body parts.

“A few armpits got done; there was fur fly­ing ev­ery­where,” Cape Glouces­ter Re­sort’s Steve Hous­ton said.

Mr Hous­ton him­self had a strip of chest hair waxed, set­ting his wife, daugh­ter and the bar staff at Cape Glouces­ter Re­sort back $300.

He was still a lit­tle sore the day af­ter­wards.

The Cook­town Cru­saders are a group of six mo­tor­cy­clists who travel from Sa­rina to Cook­town rais­ing money for Autism Queens­land.

They roared into Dingo Beach on their mo­tor­bikes around 2pm on Sun­day, just in time to catch the end of Whit­fun­day and sell some raf­fle tick­ets.

“I think they raised around $2000 be­tween Whit­fun­day and Cape Glouces­ter,” Mr Hous­ton said.

The Cru­saders left Cape Glouces­ter for Mission Beach on Tues­day morn­ing, and will ar­rive in Cook­town on Sun­day morn­ing. For more in­for­ma­tion, head to www.cook­town­cru­saders.com.

OUCH: Steve Hous­ton part­ing with some of his chest hair.
