2017 Lips 'n Sync all over !

Another great night of entertainment in very soggy conditions. Unfortunately many locals from across the Clarence Valley either couldn't get out, or sensibly turned back due to the flooding.... so the numbers were down but as they say, the show must go on.

Stage being set up

Hall starting to fill up on a very rainy night

Awesome buffet of delectable dishes prepared by local cooks !

Enjoying dinner !

As everyone probably knows by now, this event is held to raise funds for various charities and projects we support in Cambodia. You can read about those by going back through this blog. The way the evening works is that locals donate some wonderful meals and their time to entertain the masses by lip syncing to a favourite tune.  We play the tunes through the night on the big screen before the local stars start.

Youtube links to the original songs are below, along with links to the performances put on by the locals

Trevor and Toni performing  Promises - Baby it's You

Miwah and Aliah chose Madonna - Lucky Star

(unfortunately for copyright reasons, Youtube removed this link so it's on Vimeo here)

Bob Warner doing  Steve Harley and Cockney Rebel - Come up and See me, make me Smile

Wendy Birch, Aliah, Miwah and Shiann  ABBA - Dancing Queen

Merrell, Jenny and Laena doing  Donnalou Stevens - Older Ladies

Toni, Anni, Laena, Annie & Trevor doing  Gwen Stefani -  Hollaback Girl

We also had a surprise soliloquy from Andrew Robinson.


After paying for raffle prizes and hall rental, we ended up raising $729.30. We had $200 in donations from some of the people who couldn't make it on the night because of the rain, which was unexpected but appreciated.

Hopefully everyone had an awesome night and we hope to see you next year. The event just keeps getting bigger and better each year with this one being the third so far !

Big big thanks to everyone who donated meals, performed on the night and everyone who attended.
