To assist her family in their time of unimaginable grief, friends are hosting a fundraising tribute evening this week, to raise money for the cost of Darci’s funeral expenses in the way most befitting to her vibrant, musical, poetic heart.

Taking place on Thursday, 25 May at the Barwon Club, the band room will ignite for an evening of poetry, music and dance.

Lowercase Poetry alum will be performing Darci’s published works of poetry, followed by musical performances from some of Darci’s favourite bands and musicians, such as Final Final, Wild Gloriosa, Cry Baby, Emilia Fol, and more.

The fundraising evening will kick off at 6pm, with all proceeds will go directly to Darci’s family.

Alongside the fundraising evening, a Go Fund Me has also been established by close friend Nikita Reick to further raise funds towards the cost of her funeral for those who are unable to attend or would like to contribute further. At time of writing, $6,331 had been raised for Darci in just three days. If you would like to donate to the Go Fund Me, head here.

So put on your dancing shoes, be ready to fight your way to the front row, and dance the night away in the name of Darci.
