Wollongong ‘Stars’ set to Dance for Cancer!
Wednesday 10 March 2021 2:00pm
For the sixth time the Stars of Wollongong is here
On 10th March the Stars of Wollongong held a launch to officially announce the 2021 Stars and dancers.
14 legends are dusting off their dancing shoes and taking to the stage for the gala event due to be held on 5th June at the WIN Entertainment Centre, to raise funds for Cancer Council. Each local Star is partnered with a local professional dance teacher to perform a dance routine, competing for the judges and audience’s votes on the night.
The event is aiming to raise $120,000 for Cancer Council’s services in the local community. Funds raised will help to provide support for people in the Illawarra community affected by cancer, as well as programs that aim to prevent and manage cancer for future generations.
“We are so excited about this year’s Stars of Wollongong event,” said Kelly Dinnerville, Community Relations Coordinator for Cancer Council NSW. “It is such a fun and entertaining way for likeminded businesspeople to come together and show their support of people affected by cancer. The courageous Stars will step out of their comfort zone and put on a night of fun and entertainment, while raising funds for their local community.”
This year’s lineup of local “Stars” includes:
- Dr Arunima Gupta from Wollongong Diagnostics
- Harry Stefanou from WHK Commercial
- Leah Mitchell from Leah Mitchell Floral
- Travis Machan from MMJ
- Stu Butler from Ride for Hope
- Mia DeVries from The Fox & The Hair
- Kylie Sharman from NSW Fire & Rescue

- Dr Matthew Treadgate from Matthew Threadgate Urology
- Liam Hammond from Inner Athlete
- Lyndal Rogers from i98
- Corey Hammond from WIN Network
- Ashleigh Tullis from Illawarra Mercury

Each Star will fundraise for Cancer Council in the lead up to the gala event and have their own fundraising page where online donations can be made. Donate here
