Hosted by musical sensation Chelsea Plumley, this is not a night to be missed as Glee Club raise funds to buy a new digital piano for their humble home at The Butterfly Club and to support Bowel Cancer Australia research cures for this serious disease.
While Maitland High School's class of 2015 fiddled with ties, adjusted gowns and crafted immaculate ringlets in their hair for their school formal, one student was preparing for the rattle of clippers to leave her with only a few millimetres of hair.
In October the Maitland Mercury covered the story of Maddison Teat, a 17 year old who planned to shave her head at her year 12 formal in memory of her mother Rachael.
Mrs Teat succumbed to bowel cancer in 2014 and her daughter hoped to raise money and honour the mother she had lost. On a stage in Newcastle City Hall in November, Maddison held up her severed ponytail while her peers and teachers cheered. She raised more than $3000 for Bowel Cancer Australia.

Jazz for Bowel Cancer

Concert remembering Raphael

In 2014 Queensland musician Raphael Skene (nee Lindquist) was studying a Master of Music Studies at Queensland Conservatorium when she was diagnosed with stage 3 bowel cancer. She was never able to return to class to complete her studies, and sadly passed away 25 November 2014. Raphael had been married exactly one month, and had reached her 30th birthday only twelve days earlier.

One year on, Eric Yates from Flagged Productions hosted a jazz concert at Queensland Conservatorium to honour Raphael’s memory and fulfil her final wishes.
Keen golfers raised more than $20,000 at a golf day fundraiser in memory of their mates who died one year ago. In December last year, Steve Benson lost his mate Tony Glynn, 47, from bowel cancer, and his mate Daniel George, 34, from synthetic cannabis use — one week apart.
"We decided to have a game of golf just with a couple mates to mark their day and we were overwhelmed with the community and local business response," Mr Benson said. "We went into the day hoping to break even to recognise our mates but the support was incredible and we raised $20,199 through the kindness of friends and local business."
