Bare Bones Barbershop

What does a retro-loving Masterchef contestant and a barbershop have to do with Alzheimer’s?

Well they’re both supporting Afternoon Rock, the rock n roll themed fancy dress event for Alzheimers’s Australia on Sunday the 25th September in Carina, Brisbane. It’s shaping up to be a great event.

This week Yvonne Campbell, the lady behind the fundraising event, and I went to Bare Bones Barbershop in Morningside. It was a great backdrop to get some photos taken as part of the promotion of the event. It’s an incredibly cool and rocking barbershop.

We’re delighted to also have support from Masterchef contestant Danielle Dixon. Danielle is donating a fabulous auction item – a dinner party for four.  She’s also a keen fan of the 50s rock scene.

“I’ve always loved classic cars and the style of the 1950s. Women were really elegant and classy, and I love that look. It makes you feel good about yourself.

I’ve just started to get into the retro food scene and how I can put a twist on it. I’m keen to look at classic dishes to see how they can be brought forward into today’s age. There is a big movement towards retro food, like ice cream sandwiches on dessert menus.”

Carindale Connect is helping with the promotion of the event and connecting businesses and people to the fundraiser. If you would like to get involved with this fundraising event, we’d love your support. You will receive promotion online and on the day.

So, can you or your organisation help with:

  • entertainment on the day?
  • donations of raffle prizes or auction items?
  • sponsorship?
  • promotion of the event?
  • some other sort of involvement? (we’re open to ideas!)

If you can help, please contact the event coordinator Yvonne Campbell via 0417 729 315 / 3420 3455 or
