Tyalgum rocks for the kids
Rockin4thekidz is a rock concert fundraiser to be held on Monday, January 25, in the pretty village of Tyalgum.
Monies raised will go to students with special needs (like autism) who attend the Tyalgum Public School.
Rockin4thekidz features some high-profile rockers including the sweet-voiced singer of that Aussie classic The Real Thing, Russell Morris. Hot guitarist Tim Gaze (who has just finished a tour with Jimmy Barnes), Vince Lovegrove & the Mongrels of Passion, Gyan & Simon, plus The Brown Birds from Windy Hill will also get the place jumpin’ on this special night at the Tyalgum Showground in Carraboi Tce, Tyalgum.
One in every 160 Australians has a form of autism which is a life-long neurological disorder, where early intervention is vital for growth. Children with autism and other special needs thrive in a classroom with ongoing one-on-one support. Tyalgum Public School wants to provide more for its kids with special needs. (Good school.)
To provide a full-time teacher’s aide for a child with autism costs about $40,000 a year. After the age of six, government funding dramatically decreases. And the finacial burden is way too heavy for parents.
Hence this fabulous fundraiser where you can hear some of the best Aussie musos.
Tickets are $40 for early birds. And $50 after that. Tickets can be purchased online at www.rockin4thekidz.com.au. (This website is also good for more info.)
Rockin4thekidz – rocking out for a very worthwhile local cause. Good on you Tyalgum Public School.
