Furry fun at Bilby Ball

Western Times - - FRONT PAGE -

FROCKED up in fancy dress, ball-go­ers danced the night away in aid of the Save the Bilby Fund. The sec­ond an­nual Fur Ball was held in Charleville on Satur­day to mark Na­tional Bilby Day.

This year’s theme of the ball was the let­ter “F” and at­ten­dees looked the part, dressed as ev­ery­thing from for­tune tell­ers to flamin­goes.

FLAPPERS, for­tune tell­ers and flamin­goes pa­raded around the Charleville Show­ground for the Fur Ball on Satur­day night.

This was the sec­ond year the event had run, and this year’s theme was the let­ter “F”.

The ball was held in light of Na­tional Bilby Day and pro­ceeds raised from the event are do­nated to the Save the Bilby Fund, a na­tional char­ity ded­i­cated to sav­ing the bilby.

This year’s ball guests were kept en­ter­tained with the colour­ful char­ac­ters from Howzatt? En­ter­tain­ment and the beau­ti­ful tunes from Soul Repub­lic.

Bil­lie the Bilby who made her de­but at the Big Red Bash also stepped out on the night to pose in pho­tos with her fans.
