Charity event for hospital
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.
