Rockin’ out for Red Collar Rescue at fundraiser

MUSIC fans and animal lovers will combine for a night of fundraising festivities at the Rock for Red Collar Rescue event on Saturday.

The event was the brainchild of Bundaberg group Undercover Experience, who will be performing along with Bre Ferguson and DJ Reks at the Sugarland One Nightclub to raise vital funds for Red Collar Rescue.

The fundraiser coincided perfectly with the organisation celebrating saving its 2000th dog.

Undercover Experience drummer Karel Fehr said the band was happy to donate its time for a worthy cause to raise $5000, which will go to renovating the pens at the shelter.

"It is a beautiful organisation and one where people are confronting painful emotions and that group does help," he said.

"The work they do is relieving and helpful to the community."

Fehr said he had experienced first hand the wonderful work Red Collar Rescue does.

"When we had to scale down our premises we had to place two dogs and three cats and they helped us," Fehr said.

He told the NewsMail while the band's signature classic rock, blues, jazz and funk fusion songs would still feature, there would be an interactive approach to get the crowd involved.

There will be raffles with more than 25 prizes from local businesses. A lucky door prize for a day trip for two to Lady Musgrave Island donated by Lady Musgrave Experience can also be won.
