Put on a mask and party at seagulls

TWEED residents are getting the chance to disguise themselves and play up - but all for a good cause.

A Charity Masked Ball is being planned at Seagulls Club on Saturday, September 19, to raise funds for Kids in Need, On Track and the Seagulls football club.

Organiser Janelle Batt said it would be run on similar lines to last year's Black and White Ball at the club and should be a night of “glitz glamour and hope”.

She said the event would be a chance for locals “to dress up and feel good about yourself and do something great for the community”.

“The dress code is formal and the night promises to be full of fun, frivolity and fabulous masks,” she said.

Ms Batt said Kids In Need was a small volunteer group which raises money to provide financial assistance to keep families close in times of need.

The group helps the families of seriously ill local children who are required to travel great distances for treatment.

It covers accommodation and travel expenses. Where possible the group assists with specialised equipment for quality of life for seriously ill children.

On Track Community Programs provide responsive and flexible support services to people experiencing mental illness, disability or accommodation difficulties, aiming to improve an individual's quality of life by encouraging active participation, social inclusion and promoting independence.

Gold Sponsors for the ball are BCU, Cummings West and BAM Promotions.

The ball for “over-18's only” is to be held from 6.30pm in the Stardust Room at Seagulls on Saturday September 19. Tickets are $70 and can be booked online at www.seagullsclub.com.au or by phoning 07 5587 9033.
