When it comes to consuming culture for a cause, you can't go past Youngcare's benefit concert. Since 2006, the organisation has put together a regular musical showcase to help raise money for young Aussies with high care needs. They get some much-needed funding to assist with providing purpose-built accommodation, grants, research and a phone line. You get a great night out.
This year marks ten years since the first event, so expect something extra special. One of the stars of that initial show, Bernard Fanning, returns to not only belt out a tune, but also takes on a curating role.
The former lead singer of Powderfinger has assembled a stellar lineup that includes Mosman Adler and #1 Dads, plus surprise guests still to be revealed. With The Chaser's Julian Morrow on hosting duties, an evening of excellent entertainment is guaranteed, as is Youngcare's ample appreciation of your support and assistance.
