Child Wise’s vision is of a society in which children can grow up free from child sexual abuse and exploitation. We work to build awareness, deliver
education, and provide the tools to empower individuals and communities around Australia so they can actively prevent child sexual abuse and exploitation.

Passionate supporter and ambassador for Child Wise, Steve Lucas, supported by his many fellow musicians, is putting together a benefit for Child Wise,
to be held at the Thornbury Theatre on Sunday March 23rd 2014.

An all-star line-up of musos consisting of some of Melbourne's elite have committed their time and energy to the night with appearances from:
Tim Rogers, Davey Lane (You Am I), James Reyne, Debra Anne Byrne, Kaity Dunstan, Chris Wilson, Doug Falconer (Hunters and Collectors),
Bruce Haymes, Paul Williamson, Stephen Hadley, Brett Kingman, Tracy Kingman, Steve Lucas, and more yet to be announced...

Many musicians that can’t be there are also contributing to the cause and event by providing special donations of their own, all of which will be included
in a silent auction that will be announced on the night.

Some items include -

- QANTAS, courtesy of Damien Hutchinson, are flying a Maton guitar around Australia, collecting over 70 signatures from the cream of Australian rock.
- Signed artwork from Steve Kilbey (The Church)
, Reg Mombassa (Mental As Anything, Pauline Bailey and more.
- Plus many signed Cds, posters, T-shirts, etc

3RRR is sponsoring the benefit free of all charge and the corporate sector is now coming to the party with True Alliance donating $2,500.00 to the cause
PLUS a $500 gift voucher for Wrangler products.

ALL money raised from the benefit and silent auction will be going DIRECTLY to Child Wise to support their ongoing prevention and awareness-raising
programs.

Production and stage management supplied gratis by Lock and Load (Big Day Out).

Steve certainly seems to have a certain notoriety - I met him 44 years ago though, long before X or the move to Melbourne, but always had a "larger than life" aspect to him!
