Bands support rugby union juniors
Two bands, Greg Nunan and The General Jacksons and Daddy Longlegs and The Swamp Donkeys, will be performing at Wagstaffe to help raise funds for training and development of the Woy Woy Lions Rugby Union Club Under-14s team.
Both bands are regular performers at the Wharf at Wagstaff and will come together for one night of Blues, Funk and Rock on April 8.
Tickets are $35 per person and doors open at 6pm.
There will also be a silent auction of sporting memorabilia taking place on the night.
The team is planning to travel to New Zealand's South Island during the July school holidays where they will play several games against local schools or clubs while also doing some sightseeing and cultural activities.
Team coach Mr Tony Wilkins said: "We are aiming to provide the players with a positive experience that will hopefully retain their interest in being active and playing sport.
"A staggering 70 per cent of kids quit sports by age 13.
"The number one reason kids quit sport is because it's not fun anymore.
"We believe the team will not only benefit through an improvement in their skills, improving their on-field performance, but also strengthen the camaraderie of the team through the shared travel experience," Mr Wilkins said.
While the primary purpose of the trip was to play rugby, the players would have the chance to step up and act as representatives of their community, Woy Woy Rugby Club and their schools.
"They will have the opportunity to play against some great teams, increase their skill level and meet some positive role models."
The team is currently undertaking various fundraising activities including the event at the Wharf at Wagstaff, barbecues, raffles, and cinema events
Tickets for the event are available online via trybookingor at Killcare Cellars and General Store or at the Wagstaff General Store.
