Kylie Austin was a hit on the night.

More than $1300 was raised at a country music fundraiser.

The Eastern Districts Country Music Club held its bi-annual concert at the Eastern Beach and Buckland’s Beach War Memorial Hall on April 19.

Guest artists Coopers Run and a variety of other artists performed with the live band as a fundraiser to support those in Auckland affected by the cyclone and recent floods.

Club member Kylie Austin, who has performed from a very young age and is in the Old Time Country Music Hall of Fame in Nebraska, also entertained to the delight of the full hall.

The standard of talented musicians and range of songs was enjoyed by many with feedback saying it was a fantastic night.

The Eastern Districts Country Music Club is a non-profit charity run by a committee of volunteers.

They want to thank East FM Radio, the Times, the local community and all those who travelled from near and far to support this very worthy cause.

The $1367.70 is the total profit and is being donated to the Vision West Fund.

“They are very grateful as many are still struggling from the effects of the floods and cyclone,” the club’s Bev Trim said.

“This year the Eastern District Country Music Club celebrated its 50th year birthday as last year this had to be delayed due to the pandemic. This club prides itself on being a friendly place where old and new friends meet as everyone is welcome.”

The club meets fortnightly from 7pm-9.30pm at the Bucklands Beach War Memorial Hall.

Different artists perform with a live band and entry fee is $5.
