Brookedale Charity Ball is back in black for 2018 | Photos

A tiny farming community are once again swapping their jeans for black tie glamour with the return of the Brookedale Charity Ball. 

After a hugely successful first year in 2017, the charity event will again raise money for Riverina Bluebell.

“We wanted something outside of the school and football clubs, something for anyone within the area to come along to,” committee president Sandy Day said. 

“There was an opportunity to raise awareness and money for mental health with Riverina Bluebell and it was a perfect fit. 

“We can see the money raised goes directly back into the community.” 

Money will be raised through ticket sales, donations and a silent auction of equipment donated from around 50 businesses from around Wagga and Lockhart. 

Last year the ball raised more than $14,000 for the charity and brought 140 locals together. 

Double that are expected to rock up this year to the tiny community of Brookedale’s defining feature: the hall. 

The evening kicks off around 6.30pm on Saturday March 10 with live tunes by The Wobbly Boot. 

Tickets are limited with RSVP to Adam Lane on 0429 204 256. No reply means tickets may have sold out.
