Central Coast dentist Andrew Sproll will swap his drills for dancing shoes as he joins the line-up for Stars of the Central Coast 2024 in May and will host an event on March 22 to kick-start his fundraising.
The annual Stars of the Central Coast event sees community and business leaders take on a 10-12 week dance challenge, culminating in a spectacular performance to raise funds for Cancer Council NSW.
Sproll’s efforts are supported by Smile On Clinics, a network of premium dental practices across the Central Coast, Hunter Valley and Sydney.
“I’m stepping out of my comfort zone with this dance challenge, but the cause is close to my heart,” he said.
“Cancer has touched the lives of many, including my own family, friends, and patients.
“This event allows me to contribute to the vital work of Cancer Council NSW, supporting research, prevention programs, advocacy, and services for those battling cancer.”
Stars of the Central Coast aims to raise $150,000, with each star acting as an ambassador for Cancer Council NSW.
Sproll encourages the community to get involved in fundraising efforts leading up to the grand performance.
“I’m excited to be part of this initiative that combines community spirit, dance, and a shared commitment to a cancer-free future,” he said.
“It’s not just about the dance; it’s about making a difference in the lives of those affected by cancer.”
Sproll will showcase his dance moves in an 80s routine with Kara Holmes from The CMPNY.
In the lead-up to the event he will host an Electric 80s Fundraising Extravaganza at The Sunken Monkey Hotel, Erina, on Friday, March 22.
There will be neon lights, 80s tunes and lucky door prizes from 6.30pm.
