White Rib­bon Gala

Broome Advertiser - - Broome Happenings - Carly Laden

Broome Civic Cen­tre was given a touch of glam­our re­cently when res­i­dents dressed to the nines for a good cause.

The 2018 White Rib­bon Gala was held on Satur­day, Novem­ber 24, in the wake of White Rib­bon Day, rais­ing money to con­tinue the fight against do­mes­tic vi­o­lence.

Guests en­joyed din­ner pro­vided by Cable Beach Club Re­sort & Spa and do­nated thou­sands of dol­lars bid­ding on var­i­ous items in a silent auc­tion, as well as a live auc­tion headed by Chris Ma­her, be­fore danc­ing the night away to the mu­si­cal stylings of Miss Be­have and the School of Funk.

Lo­cal young mu­si­cian In­di­anna Wa­ters also per­formed sev­eral songs through­out the night as a spe­cial guest.

Guests raised a to­tal of $27,500, which will be dis­trib­uted to the White Rib­bon Foun­da­tion, Marnja Jarndu Women’s Refuge and the Men’s Out­reach Ser­vice.
