Friday March 12 will see The Peregian Beach Hotel host the first extra fundraising event hosted by the East Coast Originals for 2016. The not-for-profit organisation that has been running the Peregian Originals for the past 15 years and the Cooroy Originals for the last two years are calling on Sunshine Coast locals and tourists alike to continue their support for the free performance series.
Hosted on the second and fourth Sunday of every month, the event presents 4 local or touring original live bands at community parks. Operated by a small committee of music passionate volunteers, the event relies on community support. Receiving very little financial support from local councils or government, the event that supports local original artists and draws upwards of 1500 punters to Peregian Beach each month depends on the financial support of local businesses and raises funds to pay for the event through on the day contributions and raffle ticket sales.
"What a lot of people at The Originals don't realise is that their $5 worth of raffle tickets really goes straight back to the event, to pay for the bands, the sound and to run The Originals each month..." Peregian Originals Volunteer, Jade Keilty.
On Friday March 18 the East Coast Originals Organisation will host 4 acts at the Peregian Beach Hotel to raise some extra funds to keep The Originals running smoothly for 2016. The fundraiser will kick off at 6pm with local acts Christian Patey, The Perries, The Flumes and followed by Brisbane reggae outfit Hemingway. The fundraiser is a free event with a gold coin donation on arrival.
Collaborating for the cause, The Peregian Beach Hotel and Stone and Wood Brewery will donate a 'Karma Keg' to the night with all proceeds from that keg going towards the ECO. Raffles and spot prizes will take place on the night with local businesses donating towards the cause.
The ECO Fundraiser will start at 7pm and run til late, The Peregian Beach Hotel is open on the day for lunch and dinner services. Those interested in supporting The Originals events or becoming a volunteer, are advised to contact the Facebook page at www.facebook.com/peregianoriginals or visit www.eastcoastoriginals.com
The next Peregian Originals is set to be held at Peregian Beach Park on Sunday March 13 from 1pm, featuring In2Nation, All Strings Attached, Agnes Blue and AlfanAnt. Cooroy Originals will return on Sunday April 24 at the Cooroy Apex Park.
