A fun night of musical entertainment and comedy to support SHINE for Kids
Presented by the CorriLee Foundation at The Basement in Sydney on 26 June 2016, the evening was an exciting and fun exploration of the music of some of the rock stars who have been photographed by the legendary Tony Mott. A group of leading Australian artists gave their time, energy and talent to raise awareness of the rights and needs of children who have a parent in prison. The night raised $20,000 to assist SHINE for Kids programs to reach many more children.
Following a Welcome to Country by Auntie Millie Ingram, the evening was anchored by the inimitable wit of host James Valentine with the superb musical backing of Peter Northcote and band. Tony Mott played the raconteur with revealing anecdotes and his iconic images, and also donated a rare print of his portrait of Chrissie Amphlett for a thrilling live auction. Comedian
Mel Buttle pondered important life situations like dogwalking in her localpark, and singers Grace Knight, Jeff Duff, Virginia Lillye, Christa Hughes and Deb Spillane made a sizzling and energetic evening.
The CorriLee Foundation and SHINE for Kids would like to thank everyone who came along, and the supporters of the evening. Your generosity and good spirit made the night a resounding success.
