The Power Station Co recently hosted the second instalment of its popular Friday Night Social.
With all details kept well under wraps, over 100 guests assembled at the café outside Go Health Club where they were entertained by the talents of freestyle rap artist 21 hundred. Then it was time for the party to really get started! The stunning samba girls from Sambaliscious escorted revellers through Nundah to the secret venue…the new Platform 14 laneway space at Nundah Neighbourhood Centre (NNC), which had been transformed for a night of Rio Carnivale-inspired fun.
Sambaliscious set the tone with a hip-shaking feathery spectacular performance, followed by a stream of dance beats from DJ Jai King Koi, who kept the party going well into the night and left guests wanting more. Magician Thom Bedlam added to the spectacle, while talented face painter Rebekah from Cheeky Faces added more bedazzle. Thanks to some local community support, guests grazed on food from Pizzalunga da Carlo, Burger Urge and Ciao Gelato.
The event was the first of its kind at the Nundah Neighbourhood Centre, officially christening the newly refurbished laneway space.
The Power Station Co will donate a portion of ticket sales from the night, as well as other fundraising initiatives, in a bid to raise $6,000 for the NNC.
This will cover the cost for 20 deserving women to participate in the Journeys program, which gives domestic violence survivors the skills and support needed to get back on their feet.
