The Stars


Dancing with the Central Coast Stars is an exciting fundraising event featuring 12 unique identities within our community. As well as a great opportunity to raise money and support Cancer Council NSW in it's mission to defeat cancer.

What is it? The 'Dancing with the Central Coast Stars' Gala Night will be held on Friday 21 February 2014 at Laycock Street Theatre. Michael will be partnered with a professional dancer and learn how to dance in the weeks leading up to the event, fundraising along the way to contribute to our goal of raising $100,000.

On the night - all of the "stars" will showcase their new found "dancing skills" and there will be a lot of laughter involved!

Cancer Council relies on the support of Australians to fund research, education and patient support. Support Michael by donating and help make a real difference in the fight against cancer.

We all have friends and family that have battled cancer. We need to fight to raise awareness and never give up.

Out on the roads Michael worked with a workmate named Bobby. They worked together for over ten years. Bobby would entertain with stories, tall and true and from time to time would suggest that with their undoubted skill and ability in making roads they should go to the USA and show them how. "Bobby insisted that should we make it all the way to Texas we would need to buy a Ten Gallon Hat so we would fit in" Michael said.

A couple of years ago Bobby died of cancer.

Michael came across this hat during a visit to the United States - "it reminds me of Bobby and the stories we used to share."

"I wear this hat in memory of a good bloke and of all the beautiful people I have known and lost to cancer."

Michael says the hat is a symbol of the responsibility to do whatever he can to raise awareness of the fight against Cancer. "I may have to step outside of my comfort zone to do so but the cause far outweighs any inhibitions I may have."

People always talk about making life and death decisions. The fight against Cancer is a true life or death endeavour that requires our total dedication.
