Sweet Louise is there to help those with incurable breast cancer live as well as possible, for as long as possible.
Sweet Louise is a New Zealand charity dedicated to supporting women and men living with incurable breast cancer. The diagnosis of incurable breast cancer means the cancer has spread from the breast, often to the bones, lungs and brain. Once diagnosed, the average life expectancy is around just two years.
Sweet Louise does this by providing members with face-to-face contact with Sweet Louise support coordinators, hosting monthly member meetings and social events, and gifting vouchers to membersto use on things like wigs, ready-made meals and cleaning services.
Sweet Louise currently has 662 members around the country, aged between 27-90 years old. The charity receives no government funding so relies on the generosity of New Zealanders like you to support them.
The California Honey Drops
In collaboration with the fine folk from Orakei Bay Village, Sweet Louise, New Zealand’s only charity solely supporting Kiwis living with incurable breast cancer, is excited to present third time Byron Bay Bluesfest Act – The California Honeydrops, Saturday, 13 April, 2019.
Drawing on diverse musical influences from R&B, funk and soul, The Honeydrops bring vibrant energy and infectious dance-party vibes to their shows.
Take the train to Orakei Station (there are only limited carparking spaces available) and head next door to the Kings Plant Barn carpark at Orakei Bay Village to enjoy an outdoor afternoon of soul-infused music and singing!
Food and drinks will be available to purchase on the night, but you are welcome to pack a picnic (food and non-alcoholic drinks only please) and bring a deck chair, although we don’t think you will be sitting still for long!
