Mackay and Whitsunday Life

Dance The Night Away

Eight well-known Mackay identities will be lacing up their dancing shoes and taking to the stage as part of the Mackay Hospital Foundation’s newest fundraising initiative.

Dancing with Heart will take over the MECC on Friday, March 31 and will see some of Mackay’s biggest personalities, who aren’t necessarily known for their dancing, bust a move.

Taking the stage includes Cathy Sullivan, Alex Finlayson, Paul Manttan, Michelle Cross, Tegan Jones, Renae Kunst, Bing Guo and Kay Nyenuh.

The participants will be performing a thoughtfully choreographed dance by Dolly Louw of Fame Talent School before a judging panel chooses the winning dancer on the night.

There will also be a number of prizes including the People’s Choice Award.

The team at Mackay Hospital Foundation prides itself on its unique events and can’t wait for Mackay to be a part of this event and support its favourite dancer and our local hospitals.
