After weeks of fundraising and community outreach, eight distinctive acts are set to take the stage for this Saturday's Stars of Bathurst Dance for Cancer at the Bathurst Goldfields.
For the fifth year running, the event will feature a number of well-known Bathurst identities producing their talents on the dance floor to raise awareness for the NSW Cancer Council.
As of Monday, the participants had collectively raised a total of $22,127 for the charity.
Leading the way in the fundraising stakes is the father-daughter duo of Bill and Carly Sewell, who together have raised $5507.
Ms Sewell nominated her father to join her in the event on the basis of his willingness to support the local community.
"Dad always puts his hand up to raise money for a good cause and while there's not a lot of technical prowess to our performance, the fundraising is why we're taking part," she said.
As a former rugby league player and a keen aviculturist, Mr Sewell has utilised a plethora of contacts to aid in their fundraising effort.
"The bird and football fraternities have been sensational in helping us out with the campaign," he said.
"Fundraising can be a tough job, but we've been lucky to receive such an outpouring of support from the wider community."
A key component of the Sewell's fundraising efforts was a raffle for a pair of zebra finches, which raised $900.
The pair will also have four items up for auction on the night of the event, including an authentic Melbourne Storm jersey signed by the current team and a limited edition number plate commemorating the two Olympic Games held in Australia.
While the Sewells are keeping the details of their performance under wraps until Saturday, their costumes take inspiration from an 'iconic' couple.
"Our performance will be a big surprise that will bring the crowd undone," Mr Sewell said.
"We've injected plenty of humour into our routine that we hope resonates with the audience," Ms Sewell added.
The Sewells have been aided in their routine by the Macquarie Highland Dance Academy's Ellen Bolger-Rowe.
