Little Rockers Radio and Red Nose have announced the Andrews Labor Government will match the first $20,000 raised in this year’s Little Rockers Red Nose Disco fundraising events.
Member for Bentleigh, Nick Staikos, says “We’re proud to be backing the Little Rockers Red Nose Disco, an event where children can dance, have fun and dress up for a cause.”
Founder of Little Rockers Radio and the Little Rockers Red Nose Disco, Sarah Morrissey, says, “It’s so important to me to raise funds to support Red Nose’s bereavement services because they did so much for our family. And it’s just as important to raise funds for research and education, so no other family has to go through what our family has gone through,”
The disco was born from the loss of Sarah’s nephew to SIDS in 2008 and is now a well-known event on the early learning calendar for Red Nose Day, continuing to grow year after year.
So far it has helped to raise over $120,000 for Red Nose since it first began in 2015 and in its fifth year, is breaking records with greater numbers of Early Learning Centres signing up to take part.
CEO Red Nose, Keren Ludski, says “We are incredibly grateful for the support, especially ahead of our 31st Red Nose Day, and would like to thank Member for Bentleigh Nick Staikos, Minister for Health Jenny Mikakos and the Department of Health and Human Services for this incredible donation.”
Registrations to host a disco are still open here.
The free public Little Rockers Red Nose Disco presented by iHeartRadio is being held at Federation Square on Red Nose Day, Friday 9th August, from 10am-1pm.
