A local group of four local ‘funraisers’ have celebrated a major milestone with $100,000 donated from more than 22 events to not-for-profits (NFPs) in the northern rivers.
Cunning Stunts – two of whom are a married couple and two of whom are professional DJs –say they have been hosting ‘parties with a conscience’ since 2015.
They donate 100 per cent of their time involved and services towards raising money for underfunded NFPs that provide services to those people in the local community who are in need.
The DJs who play, and some of the businesses and volunteers involved, also donate their time and/or services.
Some $12,000 raised from their January event will go towards NFP recipient Cabarita Youth Service. It was their largest to date, they say; they have raised $107,885 in just two years.
The group said, ‘We’re honoured to share that our ticketed events are now selling out at record speed – the January event sold out in 15 hours.’
Darren and Sarah Sutton, Laura Peck and Dale Stephen say they tirelessly devote themselves to putting on their Nudge Nudge Wink Wink fundraising events each month as a charitable endeavour.
Held at the Billinudgel Hotel, they are assisted by guest DJs, sponsors, supporting businesses and the Nudgers.
Darren told The Echo, ‘It’s been a pleasure building it up and creating awareness and funding for charities that are doing amazing work in the northern rivers.’
The next funraiser will be at the Billinudgel Hotel on Sunday February 4.
