Community rallies for Darren

image-dc84a3615da61771cfd05e5e1eeaea72 Community spirit is set to ignite this Friday with the ‘This is Living’ benefit concert for local, Darren Middleton.

The benefit concert will raise vital funds for Darren and his young family, as he undergoes treatment for brain cancer in his second fight against the devastating disease.

Event organiser Dave Clare is urging the local community to get behind this cause and show their support for the Middleton’s.

“Darren's in the middle of another battle and he and his family need our help,” he said.

“This is our chance as a community to rally together and do what we do best in the Midwest.”

Proudly sponsored by Elite Electrical, Epic Sounds and ATC Midwest, the concert will see performances from a talented line-up of local artists.

“We’ve got the young up and coming Nadine Burchell opening the show, plus we’ll have a performance by State Karaoke champion Emily Ruffin,” said Mr Clare.

Also among the line-up is international vocalist and guitarist Leon Tioke, and closing the show will be local band Blue Mercy.

Event organisers are hoping to draw a crowd of 300, with all proceeds going directly to the Middleton’s.

“Every ticket we sell will support Darren and his family, and help ease their financial burden during this difficult time.”

The “This is Living” benefit concert will take place on Friday May 16th at the Spalding Park Golf Club.

Mr Clare said guests can soak up the evening’s entertainment in the luxury of the VIP area, and enjoy refreshments and table service throughout the concert.

Tickets are $50 for VIP access and $20 for standard admission, and are available for purchase through Spirit Radio, ATC Midwest and Spalding Park Golf Club.  For more information or to secure your place in the VIP area, call 0417 188 459.
