Ta­bles are turned for Vic­tim Sup­port

Matamata Chronicle - - Front Page - By ABBY BROWN

Krys­tle Haines says she was ‘‘so ner­vous’’ about de­but­ing her DJing skills late last month.

Krys­tle, aka Mrs Dfuse, took a turn on her late hus­band’s turnta­bles at the DJ Dfuse Me­mo­rial Night on May 29.

‘‘But once I got up there and played the first song I was fine,’’ she said.

The event, which com­mem­o­rated the one-year an­niver­sary of Mike Haines’ death, was an ‘‘amaz­ing night’’.

‘‘It was the best night I have ever had at Trac Bar, I will never for­get it.’’

She said the crowd was ‘‘per­fect’’ and ‘‘friendly’’.

Krys­tle pre­sented the $1000 the event raised to Vic­tim Sup­port, the or­gan­i­sa­tion which has helped the Haines fam­ily over the past 12 months, on June 4.

Trac Bar do­nated the usual DJ fee of $450 and the pro­ceeds from their Thurs­day night meat raf­fle and had raised $300 through drink spe­cials that the lin­gerie wait­resses had dis­trib­uted. Trac Bar do­nated ad­di­tional funds, round­ing the to­tal do­na­tion up to $1000.
