SVELTE gangster suits and cheeky flapper dresses were all the rage last night at the Loddon Mallee Kids Shine the Light on Premmies ball.
Attendees wholeheartedly embraced the 1920s theme of the event, which was held in The Conservatory at the All Seasons Hotel.
LMK president Laura Campbell said the night included several silent and major auctions, with items up for grabs including a helicopter ride in Melbourne, cricket memorabilia and a financial planning package.
The major auction item was a week in a beach house in Torquay, donated by major sponsor Front Beach Torquay Beach Houses.
Bendigo band The White Walls provided the entertainment for the night.
Ms Campbell described the event as a terrific success.
"We just had a great night," she said.
"It was lots of fun."
She said the organisers were still counting the takings but were confident of getting close to their $20,000 target.
Loddon Mallee Kids is a not-for-profit organisation that provides information, advice and support for families of premature babies.
Proceeds of the night will go towards the organisation’s premature baby support group and equipment for Bendigo's special care wards.
