‘Mirror Balls & Happy Pants’ is the first of many fundraising events to be organised by The GoTo Foundation – a newly created not-for-profit organisation providing support to the community for their health, wellbeing & education.
A celebration of the music that we all grew up with in the 70’s and 80’s ‘Mirror Balls & Happy Pants’ will be held on Friday 4th of June 2010 at the Adelaide Pavilion, corner of Peacock Road and South Terrace Adelaide – starting at 7pm.
Co-founded by Lewis Pounentis, Nick Apostolou and George Diakomichalis, GoTo is an acronym for GIVING OPPORTUNITIES TO OTHERS. Following the growing concern of those around them suffering from heart disease and realising the need of awareness amongst those not normally affected i.e women and younger people (not just an old man’s disease), the GoTo Foundation have dedicated all profits from their first fundraiser ‘Mirror Balls & Happy Pants’ to The Heart Foundation of South Australia to be used for many of their promotional activities including their ‘Go Red For Women’ campaign – encouraging all to wear red on Friday June 11 to raise awareness about women and heart disease.
From ABBA to The Village People, Boney M, the Bee Gees, Patrick Hernandez, Wild Cherry, KC and the Sunshine Band and Chic to Duran Duran, The Culture Club, Pseudo Echo, The Human League and Mel and Kim, Yazz, C&C Music Factory, Inner City, Neneh Cherry, Jungle Brothers – and everything in between … ‘Mirror Balls & Happy Pants’ is sure to have you reliving those days of the HUSTLE, BREAKDANCING and NEW JACK SWING!
Tickets are $85 per person including a drinks package as well as an assortment of canapés during the night PLUS there will also be silent auction items, raffles and many random prizes for those willing participants ‘on the floor’.
If you remember the days of dancing in a circle around your handbags and purses at any one (or probably more) of the following places back in the 70’s and 80’s… The Arkaba, Bogarts, Sylvesters, Jules, Rios, Leos at The Old Lion, Waves, Juliana’s/Margaux’s at the Hilton, Regines/Nicholas Nicklebys, Braesteds/Lord Jims, the Planet or even Heaven then now’s the time to start organising a group for a great night of socialising, meeting new people, catching up with ones you haven’t seen in a while and appreciating the awesome music from the 70’s and 80’s that we enjoyed (and still enjoy) … all for a good cause. GoTo it!
