Isis Town and Country - - Kolan News - By ALEX WAL­TERS GIN GIN SHOW BALL CO-OR­DI­NA­TOR

THE Gin Gin Show Ball was held on Satur­day, May 16.

This year, we tried some­thing dif­fer­ent – hold­ing the event in a mar­quee at­tached to the func­tion cen­tre at the Gin Gin show­grounds to help try and cap­ture more peo­ple to at­tend the event.

We had more than 240 peo­ple at­tend the ball, which was a fan­tas­tic ef­fort for our town and the high­est num­bers we have had at the ball in many years.

The show ball is such an im­por­tant event for our town as it pro­vides one of the limited op­por­tu­ni­ties to not only dress up for a for­mal event but also where ev­ery­one from farm­ers to ur­ban dwellers can all join to­gether to re­lax and have a great night out.

This year, Theresa Wil­liams was an­nounced as our 2015 Miss Show­girl and Jes­sica McDon­nell was an­nounced as our Miss Show­girl run­ner-up.

Our Ru­ral Am­bas­sador for 2015 is By­ron Brugge­mann.

Jes­sica McDon­nell was also awarded our high­est fundraiser for 2015.

GREAT SUC­CESS: The Gin Gin Show Ball was held on Satur­day, May 16, in a mar­quee.

2015 Ru­ral Am­bas­sador By­ron Brugge­mann, 2015 Miss Show­girl Theresa Wil­liams, 2015 Miss Show­girl run­ner-up and high­est fundraiser Jes­sica McDon­nell.
