This fundraising event is to be held in the Gwydir Shire at the Roxy Theatre, Bingara on the 22nd October 2016. Tickets include a three course meal, Live Band “Splash Pool”, auction, raffles and guest speaker and poet, Murray Hartin. Our goal is to connect our community by providing a fun and subsidised event. The night is a rare opportunity for local community members, business owners and especially our beloved farmers to come together to let the dog off the chain and enjoy themselves. The ball will benefit the Gwydir Shire not only by connecting the community in a fun, relaxed atmosphere; it will raise funds to go towards mental health awareness and support in the region. ‘The Black Dog Institute’ and the Bingara Lion’s Club will benefit from funds raised, as will the Gwydir Shire Community with the event providing opportunity for further awareness programs for suicide, depression and mental health to be held.
