Char­ity event for hospi­tal

The Weekly Advertiser Horsham - - Machiunery Field Days -

Or­gan­is­ers of a com­mu­nity char­ity con­cert in Ararat on April 6 hope to raise at least $1500 for the Royal Chil­dren’s Hospi­tal in Mel­bourne.

Event spokesman Carl For­shaw said the con­cert, run by a group of Ararat vol­un­teers from a va­ri­ety of com­mu­nity groups, would be at 7pm at Ararat Unit­ing Hall.

He said Ararat City Band, Sing Aus­tralia Ararat branch mem­bers and other Ararat district en­ter­tain­ers would per­form at the con­cert.

“En­try is by do­na­tion and we will be sell­ing raf­fle tick­ets, hav­ing a lucky door prize and will also auc­tion a hand­ful of do­nated prizes dur­ing the night,” he said.

This year’s con­cert is the sec­ond or­gan­ised by the vol­un­teer group, who raised about $1280 at Cha­lam­bar Golf Club last year.

Mr For­shaw said the event would in­clude a light sup­per but peo­ple could also bring their own snacks.
