Rotary ball to be a blast

A SMORGASBORD meal, fancy dress and Krazy Horse are three reasons to buy a ticket ahead of the Bushturkey Rotary Charity Ball on October 24.

Rotary Club of Kyogle committee member Michele Sabol said the Ball, which is in its fifth year, is shaping up to be the biggest one so far.

"This year the ticket sales have exceeded last year at the same time ... I think we're well and truly on the way to 150-180 people," she said.

"Last year we brought the venue closer to town, so it's our second year at the football fields."

The Ball will be held in a marquee at New Park Fields in Kyogle.

Queensland country rock band Krazy Horse will feature as the night's entertainment, after their success at last year's Ball.

"We got them last year and everybody loved them, everybody was up dancing all night," Ms Sabol said.

Money raised will go towards the Rotary Youth Leadership Award (RYLA), as well as the local SES and senior rugby league team, the Kyogle Turkeys.

"RYLA is for 19-30 year olds ... they go away for a week, it's a week of team-building," Ms Sabol said.

Highlights of the night will include auctions, raffles and prizes for best dressed.

Tickets are $50 and can be purchased over the phone on 0432 330 952.

The charity ball starts at 6pm on Saturday, October 24.
