CITY of Greater Bendigo mayor Barry Lyons is polishing his dancing shoes in readiness to hit the dance floor this weekend.
Cr Lyons and his wife, Betty, will host the City of Greater Bendigo Mayoral Ball at Town Hall - and you can join them if you buy a ticket before 4pm Friday.
Cr Lyons said he looked forward to celebrating Bendigo at its finest.
“Betty and I look forward to welcoming residents and the business community to the Town Hall to share in this wonderful occasion,” he said.
“This will be an opportunity to join with friends or clients, get dressed up and enjoy a great night out.
“The theme of the night is a touch of gold and guests are invited to include gold in their attire, a reminder of Bendigo’s rich mining history, and entertainment will be provided by the Bob Valentine Big Band.”
Tickets cost $160 per person and include a three course meal and a selection of beer, wine, sparkling and non-alcoholic beverages.
Proceeds from the evening will be donated to Variety – the Children’s Charity.
All funds will go towards the VICKIDS program, which will provide support to local children affected by natural disaster.
The program provides for essentials such as school supplies, medical expenses, school camps, excursions or other costs that support a child’s health, wellbeing and education.
A silent auction will run throughout the night.
To reserve your tickets, phone Rachel Isaac on 4408 6523.
