Reach­ing out for the heal­ing hands

Whitsunday Times - - NEWS -

WITH the Whit­sun­day com­mu­nity look­ing to heal in the af­ter­math of Cy­clone Deb­bie, some­times all it takes is an event that brings peo­ple to­gether.

And this is ex­actly what will be pro­vided with a re­lief ben­e­fit con­cert to be held by the Whit­sun­day Sail­ing Club on May 27.

Whit­sun­day Re­gional Coun­cil, Tourism Whit­sun­days and Air­lie Beach Fes­ti­val of Mu­sic will come to­gether to organise the event with pro­ceeds to be dis­trib­uted to char­ity or­gan­i­sa­tions and the SES.

The event will run from 10am to 10pm.

Fes­ti­val of Mu­sic or­gan­iser Gavin But­lin said he was in the process of or­gan­is­ing some “big name” bands to the area.

“We just need to lift ev­ery­one’s spir­its, a lot of peo­ple have done it hard and lost per­sonal stuff with in­juries and peo­ple in town need to let hair down,” he said.

Any­one un­der 18 will get in free, with an adult en­try fee still to be worked out.
