Major Raiser With Dominique Bird From Mitzi

What's the benefit gig for? Major Raiser are a youth charity organisation that throw parties with a purpose to raise money for needy organisations. This time around they're supporting the Music Outback Foundation. M.O.F is a not-for-profit charity that runs music workshops and provides musical instruments to kids in remote communities. They've been around for a few years now and have expanded to three states and territories.

Why do they need the help? As a non-profit organisation, M.O.F. rely solely on donations. For the charity to continue to run and expand, they need our support.

What's the current situation? People who live in remote areas in Australia still experience inequities in areas such as health care and education. Luckily, charities like the Music Outback Foundation are doing something to change this.

Who else is helping out on the night? Acts playing with us are Glass Towers, Castlecomer, Colour Coding, Conics, Lancelot, Deckhead and Athson. It should be a rad party!

Why is music/art appropriate for this cause? Major Raiser was founded on the idea of partying with a purpose – using live music as a vessel for social change. It's a great way for people to donate to a charity and have some fun at the same time - everybody wins.

When and where can we help out? Saturday 5 May, Beach Road Hotel, Bondi
