Marc Catanzariti AKA Mr September wants lots of calendars sold for Country Hope

One of Griffith’s most eligible bachelors has thrown his six pack forward to raise money for sick children. 

Marc Catanzariti is one of twelve men who took off their clothes to pose for the 2018 Country Hope Men’s Calendar. Proceeds from the calendar sale go to Country Hope, a charity supporting children suffering from cancer and other life threatening illnesses.

Mr Catazariti, or Mr September, is more than just eye candy – he is qualified in five different professions. He is also looking to settle down.

Let’s found out a bit more about him.

The calendars, featuring Marc as Mr September, are now available for sale – making them an ideal Christmas gift.

Photographer Ginette Guidolin took on the difficult task of shooting the twelve men. 

“Some of them hated it, were really nervous, and reluctant to take their shirts off. But when they were told where the money would go, they did it,” she said.

“About half are shirtless and the other half clothed”.

Country Hope calendars can be purchased at The Area News office at 11b Banna Ave.

From November 21, Griffith Central will have a stall selling the the calendars every Thursday, Friday and Saturday.  Cost is $20.
