Following its inaugural event earlier this year, Point Blank Group, fronted by Miss Blanks, have announced their fundraising initiative and benefit concert A Carry 4 Coins will take place once again in 2021, turning the fundraiser into an annual event.
Set to take place at Fortitude Music Hall in Brisbane on Friday 5 February 2021, the fundraiser will include sets from some of the country’s most exciting artists including Barkaa, Camp Cope, Emily Wurramara, Mo’Ju, Tia Gostelow, WAAX, with more to be revealed.
As a result of the successful 2020 edition and launch, A Carry 4 Coins will be launching in 2021 as an annual event and fundraising initiative for social causes impacting communities that require support, with each annual edition addressing a different cause. In 2021, A Carry 4 Coins will be supporting black Rainbow, an organisation and social enterprise in pursuit of the health, wellbeing and suicide prevention of the national Aboriginal & Torres Strait Islander LGBTQIA+ community, and a collective of heroic Transgender Women of Colour working within their community to raise funds for gender affirmation surgery. "Point Blank Group are so excited to see the return of A Carry 4 Coins in 2021. This initiative has been a great example of story-telling, togetherness, community activation, and the power of humanity. When David (my business partner) and I started this event, it was us in the living room ordering dinner and texting mad friends like Kaiit, Sampa, Kira, and others to be part of this event. We couldn't stand by while we were seeing our community suffer from such a tragic event.” exclaims Miss Blanks. “Fast forward nearly a year, we're plagued with the impacts of COVID-19 which has disproportionately affected Black, Indigenous, People of Colour, Poor people, LGBTIQA+ people, Disabled folk, Sex Workers, and many other people not represented and cared for on a social, governmental, or industrial level. I'm so excited for us to be launching A Carry 4 Coins 2021 and announce the annual event with many editions to come. It’s so important to us to help provide relief where possible so that as a community we can all feel supported, protected, seen, and heard.”
