Rising music stars shine for Kids Helpline

By: yourtown 03 Dec 2014 Kids Helpline

There was toe tapping, boot scooting and lots of fun at ‘Kids Helpline’s Kickin’ Country Christmas’ last night, where country music’s rising young stars came together to raise funds for our national counselling and support service.


Triple M’s Greg (Marto) Martin generously donated his services as MC and performers The X Factor - Australia Contender Caitlyn Shadbolt, 2014 Toyota Star Maker Jared Porter, Brisbane sister act Dozzi and talented Queenslander Seleen McAlister donated their talents to put on a fabulous show.

The $30 ticket price along with raffles and an auction allowed fans to give generously to our vital service with all proceeds from the event going directly to helping young people.

The Dozzi sisters were inspired to get involved after finding out that 4 out of every 10 calls to Kids Helpline currently go unanswered as a result of funding shortfalls.

My sisters and I knew immediately we wanted to do something to help raise funds for Kids Helpline. There are so many young people in need and it’s important they have someone to speak to when they’re feeling depressed or vulnerable. We just want to do what we can to help young people who need help. Andrea Dozzi

Thanks to Optus Business Centre Brisbane South owner Jody Barlow for sponsoring the event and Lefty’s Old Time Music Hall for providing the venue free of change.

You can also support Kids Helpline. Your $30 donation can mean one less call goes unanswered.

Answer the call and donate today. It will make a difference.
