In an effort to beat their fundraising record of $15,000, members from Relay for Life team The Groovers have some big plans.

A variety night on Saturday, September 2 will be the main event but a brave trio will also be shaving their heads to raise funds and awareness for the Cancer Council Tasmania.

“The Shake, Sparkle, Shave event is all because as a relay team we wanted to make a bigger impact this year,” team member Sophie Enniss said.

“We rang a few people, called in some favours and the local community has come together. We have local singers, dancers, theatre companies and cheer schools volunteering their time to put on a variety night at the Country Club who have also come to the party.”

Hosted by Rick Marton, performers include Amy Stringer, Allstar Cheer and Dance Tasmania, Bee Bop Dance Studio, Bronte Kendell, Encore Theatre Company and the Fireflies.

The showroom can hold 450 and the team hopes to sell out. Tickets for Shake, Sparkle, Shave are available from www.tixtas.com
