Eyes on the ball for fundraiser

Whitsunday Times - - CHILL. -

FUNDRAIS­ERS for chil­dren and ladies take place reg­u­larly but now, thanks to the Par­ent Ac­tion Group, the men will have their mo­ment in the sun.

The Ball or Noth­ing Sports­man’s Din­ner will be an un­miss­able event for the blokes, with guest speaker Mark Geyer sure to rat­tle off hi­lar­i­ous sto­ries.

The NRL cham­pion, who played more than 130 games for the Pen­rith Pan­thers and also rep­re­sented Australia and New South Wales, will head­line the night while JJ Rox will pro­vide the live en­ter­tain­ment.

It’s not all fun and games though, with a wealth of sports me­mora­bilia and prizes to be auc­tioned off. comes to speak­ers and me­mora­bilia but we’ve also got lo­cal busi­ness and per­son­al­i­ties in­volved,” she said.

“A lot of the prizes have been sourced from in­ter­state but as al­ways it’s the lo­cal busi­nesses and peo­ple that re­ally make the dif­fer­ence.

“We re­ally ap­pre­ci­ate the lo­cal com­mu­nity for help­ing us pull it all to­gether. They’re very gen­er­ous and with­out them the event couldn’t hap­pen and we would be a long way off get­ting those funds for stage 2.”
