Cha­lam­bar tal­ent night

The Weekly Advertiser Horsham - - Swimming Sports -

Ararat district mu­si­cal tal­ent will be on show at Cha­lam­bar Golf Club on March 29 as part of a com­mu­nity ef­fort to raise money for the Royal Chil­dren’s Hos­pi­tal Good Fri­day Ap­peal.

Santa’s Place vol­un­teers, a col­lec­tion of peo­ple who pro­vide their time to raise money from di­verse ac­tiv­i­ties, will switch from a Christ­mas to Easter theme to present the tal­ent night.

The group has al­ready col­lected $1000 from Christ­mas ac­tiv­i­ties and wants to push the fig­ure be­yond the $1997.50 it raised for the ap­peal last year.

Tal­ent night spokesman Carl For­shaw said the event, which had a cover charge of $25 and in­cluded sup­per pro­vided by the Cha­lam­bar club as well as lucky door and chair prizes, would fea­ture a tal­ented mix of es­tab­lished and young mu­si­cal tal­ent from Ararat.

“We have five peo­ple com­ing to per­form and it’s a great mix from our well-known Elvis im­per­son­ator ‘Ricky’ to out­stand­ing young tal­ent,” he said.

“The doors open at 7.30pm and chil­dren 12 and un­der who at­tend with par­ents are free of charge. And Easter bunny just might be there with Easter eggs.

“We’re hop­ing peo­ple come along and sup­port the night. We want as many peo­ple there as pos­si­ble.”

Ear­lier in the day, the group has also or­gan­ised Easter bunny to be in Ararat’s main street in front of Bendigo Bank from 11am to 2pm, where Ararat’s Y’smen will pro­vide a money-rais­ing bar­be­cue.
