Dance the night away for one great cause

The Western Star - - News - ELLEN RANSLEY

DO THE Hus­tle, get ready to do the Funky Chicken and throw in an elec­tric slide and a Nut­bush all in the name of sup­port­ing the En­deav­our Foun­da­tion.

Quickly be­com­ing an an­nual tra­di­tion, Michael and Juanita Jensen are hop­ing to once again raise money this Satur­day night to go to­wards the foun­da­tion.

“We are en­trants each year in the Great En­deav­our Rally,” Mr Jensen said.

“They pro­vide a va­ri­ety of means of as­sis­tance, they fill in the gaps that NDIS doesn’t cover and make life a bit eas­ier for peo­ple.

“We are lucky to have an in­house En­deav­our Foun­da­tion here.

“I think it’s ab­so­lutely sen­sa­tion the work the foun­da­tion is do­ing at the mo­ment.

“They have an ever-ex­pand­ing vir­tual re­al­ity pro­gram where they’ve been able to train peo­ple up to use fork­lifts and ma­chin­ery.”

Ac­cord­ing to Mr Jensen, ev­ery­body ei­ther knows some­one or is re­lated to some­one who re­quires some form of as­sis­tance.

“We’re able to help peo­ple all over Queens­land. Each year we have a goal of $10,000,” he said.

“Ev­ery lit­tle bit helps. For this Satur­day’s event we’re only charg­ing $25 for a great night of en­ter­tain­ment, there will be fin­ger food and a bar and mu­sic all night long.”

Doors open for the ’70s Dance Night at 6pm on Satur­day night at the Roma Cul­tural Cen­tre.

The event is open to the whole fam­ily., and tick­ets are avail­able at Amanda’s Choice, the House of Re­lax­ation, or at the door.
