Why did Tony the Chicken cross the road?

...To raise much needed funds for the Children's Cancer Institute! This year our fearless leader took part in the Dare the Boss fundraiser in support of the Children’s’ Cancer Institute. The Staging Connections team set a challenging target of raising $2,000 in 4 short weeks. We are proud to announce we blew this target out of the water, raising a staggering $6,427.38. The reward for our efforts was seeing our Managing Director, Tony Chamberlain, don the magnificent ‘Chicken Suit’ and giving an impromptu performance of the Chicken Dance.

We would like to extend a huge thank-you to all who donated, including staff, clients and friends of the Staging Connections Group. A special mention to Freeman – our new owners – for courageously committing to matching whatever amount we raised. Without your support we would not have achieved such an impressive amount nor witness a performance that will stick in our minds forever.

Dare the Boss is a unique fundraising opportunity for companies to raise vital funds for childhood cancer research while having some fun with their Boss during International Childhood Cancer Awareness Month (September). It was a fantastic experience and we highly recommend all companies to get on board and band together to help the Children’s Cancer Institute end childhood cancer.

The Children’s Cancer Institute is the only independent medical research institute in Australia wholly dedicated to putting an end to childhood cancer. Sadly, every year more than 950 children and adolescents in Australia will be diagnosed with cancer. Every week nearly three Australian children will die of cancer. These are facts you can’t ignore.


Thank you again for your support and we look forward to next year’s challenge!
