Guy Argaet and his sister Rae Argaet will also be performing.

The Country Music Spectacular is being held at the Queanbeyan Kangaroos’ Rugby League Football Club, Stuart Street Queanbeyan on Sunday November 19 from 11.00am. Entry is $10.00 for adults, children $5.00.

All enquiries to Di Flynn-Masters on 02 6238 2380. Donations should be sent to Di Flynn-Masters at 1444 Hoskinstown Road Bungendore NSW 2621. Cheques should be made payable to the McKenzie Benefit Trust Fund.
******************
At a special committee meeting held just before the October Walk-up concert commenced, the Country Music Association of Canberra gave a $1,000 donation to help establish The McKenzie Benefit Trust Fund at the Bendigo Community Bank, who have offered their facilities free.

McKenzie is the daughter of Guy and Letice Argaet. She has been hospitalised at Westmead Children’s Hospital requiring an urgent transplant.

Prior to moving to Young, where he has only recently established his own business, Guy was a strong supporter of the Country Music Association of Canberra for many years. Starting as a youth, Guy and his sister Rae, were introduced to Country Music by their parents, Carol and the late Ted Argaet, who in turn were strong supporters of the Country Music Association of Canberra since its inception.

Guy took part in and won many talent quests, and as he developed as an entertainer, was not hesitant in helping other young musicians progress.

A Benefit Concert is planned for Sunday November 19 at the Queanbeyan Kangaroos Football Club, Sturt Street Queanbeyan from 11.00am to 6.00pm, with a $10.00 door charge. The Roos Club are providing their facilities at no cost.

Artists interested in performing can ring Di Flynn-Masters on 02 6238 2380.
Donations to assist, should be sent to Di Flynn-Masters at 1444 Hoskinstown Road Bungendore NSW
2621. Cheques should be made payable to the McKenzie Benefit Trust Fund.
