The son of the Late Don Lane, 'PJ' will be hosting fundraising dinner at berardo's restaurant & bar in Hastings Street Noosa on Thursday, February 25th. The night promises to be fun filled, with PJ hosting, singing and talking about the journey with his father and the debilitating effect the disease had on him.
The night will feature an auction of a framed Giclee (reproduction of the original) title Blue Vase by David Hart, and fantastic raffle prizes from The Groom Room, Anthony's Fine Jewellery on Hastings Street, Noni B and the beautiful Secrets Shhhh. All monies raised will go towards assisting those who live with and for those who care for someone experiencing dementia on the Sunshine Coast.
PJ will be appearing with the talented Karen Jacobsen. When Karen Jacobsen walks on stage you know she belongs there. She has the looks of a model, the presence of a superstar, and then you hear her voice - that "never-seen-a-cigarette-in-her-life" voice. Her songs are catchy, melodic, timeless pop, kind of like Billy Joel would sing if he were a tall, blonde Australian woman. Now New York based, Karen has shared the stage with Norah Jones, Christopher Cross, Jars of Clay, Three Dog Night, Deborah Cox, Cyndi Lauper, Spyro Gyra and her songs have been heard on Dawson's Creek and NBC. You may also well know Karen as the voice of the GPS Girl!
Access Economics statistics 1.3% of the population of the Sunshine Coast has dementia. The Sunshine Coast is one of the main growth areas for this disease as the aged population in the region is set to expand rapidly. It is anticipated the number of people with dementia in the region will grow to at least 2.3% of the Sunshine Coast population by 2030.This means there is currently over 4500 people with dementia in this region and approximately 10,000 by 2030 as the population increases. Over 60% of people with dementia remain living in the community.
Tickets are $110.00 per person and includes a welcome drink, four course dinner and entertainment.
