The Voice performers sing to save Jim Stynes' foundation

Posted Image


STARS from The Voice will sing their hearts out tonight to help save Jim Stynes' beloved youth charity Reach.

The death of Stynes has left his foundation in "dire straits" financially.
Stynes' protege and Reach ambassador Jules Lund said the charity was so strapped for cash it would "struggle to continue with its Melbourne programs" unless there was an immediate injection of cash.
Reach needs more than $4 million to see out the year.
Lund said tonight's charity concert, to be screened on Channel 9 on Sunday night, would set the story straight.
To support Reach call 9412 0900 during business hours or visit reach.org.au
The Voice winner Karise Eden and finalists Darren Percival, Sarah De Bono and Rachael Leahcar will perform at The Palms at Crown.
Reach runs programs to improve the mental health and emotional wellbeing of young people aged 11-19.
Lund revealed yesterday that while Stynes' brave battle with cancer had raised awareness of the foundation's work with troubled youth, it also created a misconception that it was flush with cash.
Reach has managed to raise only half its annual operating budget of $6 million.
It needs a further $1.2 million to assist the extra 10,000 young people who have approached Reach for help since Stynes' death cast the spotlight on the foundation.
Lund said two corporate sponsors had bailed out on the charity and the public had stopped donating.
"The reality is we're in dire straits, despite the public perception that we must be flush with cash," he said.
"People think that because of all the publicity we got through Jim, that we must be inundated with donations and government funding. Well, we're not. We are really struggling."
Reach chief executive Sarah Davies said people had the wrong idea the charity was set for money because the State Government had established a $3 million Jim Stynes scholarship.
She said none of the money went to Reach. It was an AFL scholarship, set aside for youth with sporting ability.
"The bottom line is we need money to run our programs and if we don't get it then we won't be able to run them," Ms Davies said.
Lund said Stynes would be at tonight's concert in spirit.
"Jim was the most phenomenal guardian angel while he was here on Earth. Can you imagine what he'll be able to do now from up there," Lund said.
"I have no doubt he's behind all this somehow."\

PERFORMERS from The Voice reached out to their fans in the name of charity.
The Voice's Reaching Out Concert was staged at The Palms at Crown.
Those appearing on Channel 9's show, including Karise Eden, Darren Percival, Mahalia Barnes, Prinnie Stevens, and Sarah DeBono, took the stage in aid of the Reach Foundation.
Sam Stynes, the wife of the late Reach Foundation founder and AFL great Jim Stynes, said the night had been uplifting.
"It has just been a fantastic day watching rehearsals and chatting to the performers, and watching them live their dreams and build awareness for the Reach Foundation, and the programs and camps it offers around Australia."
She said it was bittersweet that her husband was not there to be part of the event.
"Jim was about getting out there and living life," she said.
"No matter what your dream was, or what your personal story was, the message was all the same.
"It is about getting out there and giving it a go and working hard, and don't not do things because of shyness or fear of failing.
He would have loved nothing more than to be here with us."
Reach spokeswoman Jodi Barry said the charity had received much public support after the Herald Sun revealed it was under financial stress.
The concert will screen on Nine on Sunday.

According to TV Tonight, the singers didn’t put a foot wrong in the 2 hour crowd-pleasing concert, with Karise Eden showing Melbourne why her extraordinary vocals won the title. Eden sang two songs including “You Won’t Let Me.” The very-assured Darren Percival charmed the room with another James Taylor number.
Sarah De Bono and Ben Hazelwood were oozing in confidence and are two who should go far.
The recreated “Turning Tables” by Brittany Cairns and Kelsie Rimmer was again sublime.
Four of the girls performed a Delta Goodrem song.

Pics from the event will appear in the print edition of the Herald Sun today, Saturday and Sunday.
