Stars of Orange 2024

About me

I was born and raised in Orange and am now a Director Solicitor at Cheney Suthers Lawyers, a modern law firm focused on great relationships and positive outcomes. I live in Orange with my husband Chris, son Mack and beloved Labrador, Luna. 

I am most excited about raising awareness of the fabulous work of the Cancer Council and raising money that will find its way back into the local community. 

I am rhythmically challenged but hope you will get behind me while I shimmy and shake my groove thang towards a cancer free world – no dance experience necessary.

Silent auction

We will be running a silent auction over the next 12 days, with an item per day up for grabs. Items will be announced a few days before their auction dates. Keep an eye out on our Cheney Suthers Instagram for item announcements and bidding. 


Meet Emily from Dance HQ

I took the opportunity to snap a quick photo with Emily yesterday as we caught up to discuss our dance plans. Fact: My Mum Debbie has called me “Tangles” for years because of my known lack of coordination. Good luck Emily! Stay tuned for dance updates in the coming weeks.

Fundraising event: Awe-inspiring Arty Party with Kayla Henley on 10 February 2024

I am excited to announce that our first fundraising event will be an awe-inspiring art event in collaboration with the fabulous Kayla Henley.

During the event you will be treated to Bubbles from See Saw Wines and a grazing board curated by Prim and Platter, while painting your very own still life fruits. Get your ticket here: Arty Party - Create with Kayla Henley | Humanitix

Kayla has kindly donated a mini artwork that will be available for auction at the event.

Kayla Henley is an artist from Orange, NSW. She creates bright still life and abstract artworks in both acrylic and oil. Kayla lives and creates with the philosophy that life should be lived with more colour and joy. She is on a mission to fill blank walls.

We hope to see you there.

Why am I participating in this event?

We were approached to participate for the 10-year anniversary for Stars of Orange and I am the tribute, with my business partners, Alice and Kirsty promising to be my #1 fans from the back wings of the stage.


For the last few years, Cheney Suthers has been involved with the Cancer Council Pro Bono Legal Program.  We have assisted several patients to get peace of mind by obtaining their estate planning instructions and drafting their Wills, Powers of Attorney and Appointments of Enduring Guardians. This has been a real privilege to the Cheney Suthers Team however we feel that we can do so much more for the Cancer Council and our local community.
