And with several other cast members set to attend, there will also be “auctions, raffles and plenty more fundraising fun”, says Lynne.
“I love being an entertainer and I love acting – and I know we bring pleasure to people – but to be able to do something hands-on to help our struggling agricultural industry is a really lovely thing,” she says. “My heart is absolutely in it.”
With New South Wales still in the grip of one of the worst droughts in decades, the charity evening will raise funds for the Drought Angels, which assists drought-affected farmers and communities all over Australia.
“A makeup artist friend of mine, Sherri Meisner, started Dollars for Dust in collaboration with Drought Angels,” says Lynne.
“She realised she needed to do something for the farmers – that she just couldn’t just sit idly by.
“Whatever we can do to help the farmers through this terrible crisis is so important. Last year’s fundraiser night was a huge success. It was above and beyond our expectations and this year’s event looks set to be wonderful too. It’s a cause that’s very dear to our hearts.”
Dollars for Dust Trivia Night will take place in Sydney this Sat. Sep. 14, at 6.30pm at All Hands Brewing House, 22 The Promenade, Kings Street Wharf. For tickets: trybooking.com/519602
