> Racing For A Cure - Race Night

Race For A CureDuchenne Foundation Race Night Event "Racing for a Cure" was hosted by the Duchene Dragons and supporters of the 2013 Great Wheelbarrow Race. This charity event was held on 3rd May 2013 at the Cairns Jockey Club to raise money for the Duchenne Foundation.

Silktones - Shirley Lynn and Jim McCabe were only too happy to provide their services to help raise money for this very worthwhile cause. As part of this event, Silktones put themselves up for auction to provide a 2 hours gig for some lucky winner who would claim their prize from the silent auction.

"Congratulations to Lyn Arthurson who was the lucky winner of the 2 hour gig by Silktones. This was just one of the prizes on offer at the "Racing for a Cure" fundraiser for Duchenne Foundation."

cashed in her prize by getting Silktones to perform at her son's wedding inbetween the ceremony and the reception. On this special occasion Silktones were stoked to be able to provide their easy listening music at Ryan and Leanne's wedding.

Comment from Lyn Arthurson:

Just had Silktones play at my son Ryan his beautiiful brides wedding at the Hilton on the 10th August. They played in the front bar area for 2 hours, after the wedding ceremony and prior to the reception. What a great easy listening band they were and made this wonderful occasion even better by having them entertain the guests. Thank you Shirley and Jim for help making their day just wonderful - your music was perfect!

Silktones received the following certificate of appreciation from the Duchenne Foundation for our contribution to this worthwhile cause.
