Move over Edward and Jacob here comes Craig Annis for Team MS!

Funny man SAFM brekkie co-host Craig Annis becomes Ambassador for MS Society of SA & NT and hosts MS Movie Night Fundraiser ‘The Twilight Saga Breaking Dawn Part 1’

Craig Annis is well known as SAFM funny man and part of the breakfast team with Hayley, Craig & Rabbit. Although Craig usually prefers to look at the funny side of life, what he does take seriously is his new role as Ambassador for the Multiple Sclerosis Society of SA & NT.

Craig has a very personal connection to the disease; his mum has multiple sclerosis (MS). That means he is well aware of the obstacles people with MS face every day and that’s why he is proud to support the MS Society in its fight for a world free of MS.

Craig’s first job as MS Ambassador is hosting the much anticipated “Breaking Dawn part 1” MS Movie Night Fundraiser on opening night, Thursday 17th November 2011 at Hoyts Norwood Cinemas, The Parade, Norwood. The event kicks off at 6.30pm and tickets are $25.00 and include a glass of Primo Estate wine and entry into prize draws.

Follow the link on the MS Society website (www.ms.asn.au) to purchase tickets or phone 08 7002 6502.

MS Society CEO, James Bardsley, says he is thrilled to welcome Craig to Team MS. “Craig will make a fantastic addition to our MS Family and I can’t wait to see him in one of our bright red Team MS t-shirts, supporting our upcoming events, including the MS 24hr Megaswim.”

“What I admire most about Craig is his tenacity and his never say never attitude, I think that will come in handy for his new role, we have some exciting plans in store for him!” Mr Bardsley said.

What you may not know about Craig is that he wasn’t always a successful radio presenter, he’s been a florist (fired because his arranging skills were sub-par!) and even a children’s party entertainer (super hero, pirate, clown, wizard, cowboy and pixie....yes pixie!)

Straight up, Craig’s an only child which might explain why he likes attention! He’s got more step-siblings than most people have birthdays and a gorgeous girlfriend who keeps him on the straight and narrow.

He has worked as a stand up comedian, and in theatre, film and TV for a few years (as the naked or beaten up guy) and was lucky enough to work with some of Australia’s greatest performers; Geoffrey Rush, Shaun Micallef, Ahser Keddie, Kerry Armstrong and John Wood.
Fundraising Manager Suzy Dimaline says “Craig’s employment history will hold him in good stead for his role as ambassador as it means he’s faced many obstacles and that’s exactly what people with MS face every day.”

Come and join Craig and Team MS to experience this long awaited event and although we won’t expect Craig to get his shirt off, we know we can always rely on Jacob!
