Cafe gigs raise money for charity

Good Nights will be teaming up with Bunbury cafes to raise $1000 for the volunteer-run charity Conquer Cystic Fibrosis.

The series of gigs began with a sold-out performance by The Milkshakes at La Pause Miam on Saturday night.

Organiser Kelsie Miller said the events were a great way for the community to enjoy a great night out while giving a helping hand to a good cause.

“When Taryn Barrett approached me to see if I would be interested in using Good Nights to raise money for Conquer Cystic Fibrosis I didn’t even hesitate,” Miller said.

“It’s important to me that Good Nights gives back to the community that has supported it since I started, and this was a perfect opportunity to use the power of the shows to support one of our own.”

Conquer Cystic Fibrosis South West coordinator Taryn Barrett said she appreciated the community’s support.

“With community support like this we are on the right track, and we are so touched by the generous support of Kelsie through this Good Nights series,” Barrett said.

The second gig will feature Canadian artists Gordie Tentrees and Jaxon Haldane at Caf-Fez on March 1, with the final show featuring Perth musicians Ricky Green and Luke Fox at The Townhouse on March 16.

Tickets can be purchased from the Good Nights website with the option of an additional $10 donation.
