Let’s help Isaac and Maddalena realise their dreams

Let’s help Isaac and Maddalena realise their dreams

If music, The Carpenters, a little bit of trivia and food is your thing - on Saturday June 29 and Friday July 5, cancel yours plans and grab a ticket to watch Fig Jam Trio, made up of Rod Dickson, Lisa Cunial and Cedric Inman perform songs from the Carpenters album.

Combining forces, the concert will be a fundraiser for both Isaac Sewak and Maddalena Cunial Stone to help them with fees and costs of representing Australia in the coming months.

Isaac Sewak will be representing Australia in the Team Auroras heading to Thailand in August for Dragon Boating from Pinnacle Dragon Boating Club. “This is my first time as part of the Junior Auroras, I’m really looking forward to racing.”

Maddalena Cunial Stone is representing 2nd Orange Scouts at the World Scout Jamboree (WSJ), in West Virginia USA, this July.

“I’ve been a part of scouts for almost four years and now I’ve moved up to the Ventures section, I’ve been preparing for this for about two years.”

Scouts from all over the world will be there, up to 40,000 to give you a rough idea, so we will get to meet all different people from different cultures and get to really experience what it’s like to be there. Then we get to be involved in different adventure activities including zip line, rock climbing, absailing, BMX and all of that sort of stuff, with several inhouse competitions.”
“I’m really looking forward to meeting new people and being with my friends, they are the loveliest group of friends I’ve ever had.”

Lisa Cunial added, I’ve been involved with both of these groups (Pinnacle Dragon Boating and 2nd Orange Scouts) and they are very community minded and a lot of fun to be a part of, so it’s nice to share this with them. We would really like to share live music with the Orange community.”

“Musically, the Carpenters are interesting, they are a challenge to sing and play and that’s why we like it - it’s beautiful, timeless music.”

Maddalena continued, “Most weekends I wake up to them playing and it’s really nice to lie there in bed and listen to them. We would be very thankful for people coming out to support us and help us to get there financially. It’s going to be a great night of food and music.”

The concert will be held in the Dalton Room at Duntryleague Guest House Orange from 7:30pm for an 8pm start, all ages welcome. The cost will be $25 per person and $15 for students and concessions. Bookings can be made to have a meal at the venue from 6pm. Drinks and finger food are available at the bar in the room during the event (not included in ticket price).
