Stars of Orange 2024

I'm fundraising for...

Help me raise funds for the Cancer Council as part of The Stars of Orange, May 4th 2024.

I grew up with a strong connection to Orange, with many family Christmases and school holidays spent here over the years. Five years ago, my husband, Tim, and I were offered the lucky opportunity to start a business in Orange and we live here now with our three daughters Nini, Harriet & Florence and our Labrador Ralph. 

In amongst busy family life, I run my own coaching business, Make Do Co., which equips people with the skills to do the work they love and the clarity to build the life they imagine. 

I'm participating in the Stars of Orange because the prevalence of cancer impacts every single one of us. Like you, I have family members and friends currently undergoing treatment for cancer. People close to us have overcome it - and some have not been so lucky.

Just one year ago I saw the benefits of education and early cancer detection, when someone close to me underwent life saving surgery. All Australians deserve that kind of outcome and I hope through the Stars of Orange fundraiser that we can contribute to the education, services and support that the Cancer Council offers - and have a lot of laughs along the way!!

Thanks to Leesa and the United Dance team for taking me on. My dance experience is limited, but my enthusiasm is strong ;-).

Live Auction Items

I also want to mention some generous donations from Haley Jean Makeup Artist & Studio Seed Orange in support of the on-the-night auction.

Haley has offered a place in her makeup course (it’s top notch). I have recently enrolled myself and can’t wait to learn from Haley. She has done my makeup for a number of events and her work is incredible!!

Alicia from Studio Seed has offered a 2-month unlimited membership to Studio Seed. This is incredible! I’m there almost everyday and highly recommend. Boutique, warm, friendly and high performance. You’re going to love it!

These items will be up for grabs on the Stars of Orange night, as part of a larger Sports, Wellness & Lifestyle Package. You can bid in person or remotely. 

With thanks to United Dance

For the past 6-weeks I've been working with Leesa Chaseling from United Dance Project and her dedicated team of young dancers who have been teaching me the moves and I’m having so much fun. In awe of how you guys move. I hope I can channel some of your energy & flair on the night!

We're over the $12K mark - woohoo!

Guys! We’ve bluddy done it. $12K raised for Cancer Council NSW via my Stars or Orange efforts. 

THANK YOU ❣️for all your donations. 

I’m so grateful!
