Dance music legend Rocky from the era-defining X-Press 2 will be headlining this year’s Rave to Save event. He will be rocking the dancefloor so that attendees can get their rave on, to help The Prostate Cancer Charity get their save on.
‘Rave to save’ is the brainchild of Ceri Owens, 23, who started the event in 2009, raising £2000 for The Children’s Trust, Tadworth. After a successful first year, the party is back with a vengeance, and Ceri is hoping to raise even more money for The Prostate Cancer. The cause is close to Ceri’s heart, and every penny made is going to the charity.
LoopLounge Croydon is once again hosting the event, which starts at 9pm on Thursday 1st April. People will be coming from all over London and Surrey to support The Prostate Cancer Charity by attending ‘Rave to Save’, and you can too! Get your tickets in advance from www.ticketweb.com/ravetosave and remember it’s a bank holiday the next day so you can make the most of it with more time spent raving and saving!
There will be a raffle held on the night with some fabulous prizes including Music Production Courses, CD’s, Guestlist passes for other top London events, and more. Some of London’s finest DJ talents will also be taking to the decks to support Rocky on the night. Supporting DJ’s include; Mouj (Jaded, ALiVE), Brad Hepburn (Toolroom / Nightowl), Tommy Mac (Me and Mandy / DiScO T3cH), Si Gern (Me and Mandy / Ibiza Project), Brendan Parry (Nightowl), Jamie Mann (Ibiza Project) and Ceri Cross (Ibiza Project / Me and Mandy).
Ceri, a DJ and student, says ‘I am confident this years event will be even more fun, and hope to raise as much money and awareness as possible. The cause is particularly important to me as my grandfather recently died of the disease, and another family member is currently undergoing chemotherapy for it. Every year in the UK, 35,000 men are diagnosed with prostate cancer. This event is dedicated to them, and I hope the money raised can help other families affected by this terrible illness.‘
Claire Walsh, Head of Community Fundraising at The Prostate Cancer Charity, said: ‘This night is an exciting way to raise awareness of prostate cancer, a disease which kills 10,000 men every year in the UK. It is great to see younger people getting involved with the Charity. Events such as this take a lot of time and effort to pull together, so on behalf of everyone at The Prostate Cancer Charity, I’d like to thank Ceri, for all of the hard work she has put into making this event so special. I am sure it will be a memorable night for everyone.’
