The Weekly Advertiser Horsham - - News -

Har­row Bush Nurs­ing Cen­tre’s bi­en­nial Black Tie Ball is on again, on June 9.

The Black Tie Ball, which started in 2012, is a gala money-rais­ing event for Har­row’s pri­mary health-care ser­vice.

It has be­come a pop­u­lar event at Har­row Hall on the long week­end in June.

The night is renowned for its fun, danc­ing and auc­tions, and as an op­por­tu­nity for peo­ple to catch up with old friends.

It is also de­vel­op­ing a grow­ing in­ter­est from Mel­bur­ni­ans keen to ex­pe­ri­ence a coun­try ball.

Har­row Bush Nurs­ing Cen­tre man­ager Ann Vaughan said the event was im­por­tant, rais­ing vi­tal money for the ser­vice.

“We are pleased to have about 200 peo­ple at­tend­ing,” she said.

“The money raised this year will be di­rected specif­i­cally to­wards the re­fur­bish­ment of clin­i­cal space and equip­ment. And we have a whole lot of fun at the same time.”

Mrs Vaughan said en­ter­tain­ment this year was renowned Ade­laide band The Rock­doc­tors, who would pro­vide live mu­sic to suit ev­ery­one.

“The Rock­doc­tors are an ex­pe­ri­enced group of mu­si­cians, some of whom are doc­tors and physi­cians in their spare time,” she said.

“They are look­ing for­ward to com­ing to the tiny town of Har­row to sup­port this char­ity event.”

The ball starts at 6.30pm and in­cludes an auc­tion of do­nated items.

“We have been very for­tu­nate to have been do­nated some amaz­ing items to auc­tion, in­clud­ing a lux­ury Sydney ex­pe­ri­ence com­plete with an ex­clu­sive he­li­copter ride over the city do­nated by the Beluga Foun­da­tion,” Mrs Vaughan said.

“This item has been gath­er­ing some in­ter­est so we are al­low­ing out­side bids this year. Any­one in­ter­ested can call the cen­tre for more in­for­ma­tion.”

Other changes to this year’s ball in­clude bring your own drinks only and sub­stan­tial canapés in­stead of a tra­di­tional meal.

The Har­row Her­mitage Ho­tel will serve evening meals from 5pm.

Mrs Vaughan said pa­trons should also make use of free bus ser­vices to and from the event from Hamil­ton, Bal­moral and Eden­hope.

Tick­ets are $80 with book­ings es­sen­tial at Har­row Bush Nurs­ing Cen­tre by call­ing 5588 2000.

Peo­ple can also choose to at­tend the event from 9.30pm, and can buy $25 tick­ets at the door on the night.
