AJ Muriel and Mavis have raised more than $15,000 for the National Breast Cancer Foundation during the past 22 months, travelling around Australia in a bright pink van.
The women, who only want to be known by their stage names, are on their Rockin’ Oz 4 a Cure tour to raise the money and performed at Echuca’s Riverland Caravan Park last night.
The hilarious duo have been getting on stage to put on a rock ’n’ roll show two to five times a week, playing anything from country to rock to AJ Muriel’s original work.
AJ (which stands for Awesome Jugs) said the audience always had a laugh.
‘‘We muck around throughout the whole show.
‘‘We say we are from the Right Arm Nursing Home for the Blind — which means the more you drink the better looking we get.’’
‘‘It’s funny because some people then think we are actually nurses but we’re not. We’re sex symbols!’’ she said.
The entertainers said they had a lot of fun and their shows were very rewarding.
‘‘I can’t run (to raise money),’’ AJ said.
‘‘My breasts would hurt too much!
‘‘We aren’t athletes, but we can get on stage and raise money that way,’’ she said.
‘‘It feels good to be able to raise money to make a difference in other people’s lives.’’
The pair, from the Sunshine Coast, hope to make another $50,000 during the 12-month tour.
