Fundraising for the centennial birthday celebration of the Sacred Heart Church in Gembrook will continue with a Rockin’ Retro afternoon at the Grove in Upper Beaconsfield on Sunday 10 July.

Organiser Samantha Willis said the event will feature a variety of entertainment.

“It’s an afternoon that we’re hoping to take people back to the ’50s and ’60s and give them a really great fun afternoon,” she said.

“Grab your friends, your girlfriends or family and come and get a table to have a really fun afternoon, dancing the afternoon away.”

The Weathered Heads will be playing live music and Shine Dancing will be performing live for attendees. Miss Flamingo’s fashion, a Rock n Roll dance show by Alley Catz and Old School Cruises will also be providing entertainment.

Ms Willis said the indoor event would be a great day out for family entertainment.

“People can get all dressed up in their ’50s or ’60s costumes, beautiful rockabilly dresses,” she said.

“There’s a best-dressed prize that we’re giving away as well as door prizes, raffles and silent auctions to help with the fundraising.”

All profits from the event will go toward holding a celebration for the Centennial of the Sacred Heart Church in Gembrook, on 13 November.
