Hav­ing a ball in Parabur­doo

Pilbara News - - Front Page - Court­ney Fowler

Parabur­doo’s town hall was trans­formed into a Win­ter Won­der­land last Satur­day night, when the com­mu­nity came to­gether to raise funds for the Parabur­doo Pri­mary School P&C As­so­ci­a­tion and Royal Fly­ing Doc­tor Ser­vice.

The glam­orous event at­tracted about 200 pa­trons, who danced the night away in the Win­ter Won­der­land-themed venue to Perth singer Kayla Jaye, DJ Daniel Har­ri­son and lo­cal en­ter­tainer Johnny Stow­ers.

Parabur­doo Red Dirt Rocks Com­mit­tee pres­i­dent Brett Sharpe said the ball com­mit­tee was fo­cused on pro­vid­ing dual ben­e­fits for the lo­cal com­mu­nity and their cho­sen ben­e­fi­cia­ries.

“The ball has be­come an in­te­gral part of the town’s events cal­en­dar, with Parabur­doo res­i­dents ben­e­fit­ing through com­mu­nity en­hance­ments bought about by our fundrais­ing part­ner­ships,” he said.

“Over the years, the event has also pro­vided lo­cals with a great op­por­tu­nity to come to­gether and have a fun night out.”

Mr Sharpe said he was pleased with pa­tron par­tic­i­pa­tion and was over­whelmed with the level of busi­ness sup­port through the event’s spon­sor­ship pro­gram.

“This year’s event was an out­stand­ing suc­cess due to our spon­sors,” he said.

“Although at this stage we don’t have a fi­nal amount on what we will be able to do­nate to the RFDS and school P&C, we are con­fi­dent there will be sig­nif­i­cant funds to as­sist both groups pur­chase much­needed equip­ment.”

The Parabur­doo Red Dirt Rocks Com­mit­tee ex­pects to an­nounce the to­tal amount raised for the ben­e­fi­cia­ries early next month.
