Pete Murray plays fundraiser

PETE Murray fans keen to see the musician in an intimate setting won't want to miss this one-off performance at Bangalow this Sunday.

Murray has offered his substantial talents for free to support the Northern Rivers Community Foundation's annual music fundraiser.

Chairperson, Lucy Ashley, said the booking was yet another coup for the foundation's annual event after securing international blues maestro Eric Bibb last year.

"We couldn't think of anyone else we'd rather have perform for us this year," she said.

"Pete is such a brilliant musician, a local guy, a dad and just so deeply connected to his community."

The event will be held at the Bangalow Bowlo on Sunday from midday.

The ticket price of $120 includes a sit-down two-course meal and show, drinks are available at the bar and there will also be raffles and auctions on the day.

According to organisers, the Northern Rivers Community Foundation is run by locals, for locals. It gathers tax-deductible donations from the Northern Rivers community to create a pool of perpetual funds.

The money is carefully invested and the income earned is used to fund a series of grants which are given out annually to worthy organisations across the Northern Rivers.

Since 2004, nearly $500,000 has been distributed to organisations including Riding for the Disabled, Autism Spectrum Association, Bialla, Lifeline Northern Rivers and Byron Youth Service to fund a series of projects that are helping to change people's live for the better.

The word on the street is the event will sell out and punters are encouraged to book now through oztix.
