Rock 'n' roll for flood relief
THE Cooly Rocks On dance party for flood relief raised more than $5000 when at least 250 rock ’n’ rollers got into the swing of things at the Tweed Heads Civic Centre on Sunday.
Operations manager Bob Newman said the day was a huge success.
“I know everyone was keen to let people know that the rock ‘n’ roll nostalgia communities were right behind the flood victims,” Mr Newman said.
“It was great for Cooly Rocks On to provide a community- based event to raise funds for those who have been devastated by the floods.”
Four hours of entertainment was provided by MC Dee Jay Jimmy D, The Chevrolets, Forever Everly, Gold Coast big band Toe Jammin’ and Elvis impersonator Dean Vegas, complemented by classic cars, hot-rods and cruisers.
“On behalf of the committee I thank all our supporters, sponsors, suppliers, volunteers and entertainers who provided their services for a great cause,” Mr Newman said.
The official Cooly Rocks On nostalgia festival will run from June 3 to June 13.
