Horsham Blue Ribbon Foundation's glamour ball, charity auction in jeopardy

HORSHAM Blue Ribbon Foundation’s annual glamour ball and charity auction might have to be rescheduled because of low ticket sales.

Branch vice-president Inspector Trevor Ashton said the event needed at least 100 attendees to go ahead.

“We have had very limited ticket sales so far, which is very disappointing,” he said.

“The whole night is basically set up for the community and gives back to the community.”

The organising committee will decide on Friday whether the ball will go ahead as planned.

Mr Ashton urged people to support the event, which raises money for Wimmera Base Hospital’s emergency department.

The hospital has bought portable vital signs monitors and trolleys with money raised in previous years.

“We have had a fantastic response from our community business partners,” Mr Ashton said.

He said Wimmera businesses had generously donated raffle prizes and auction items including holidays and sporting memorabilia. 

He was also excited to see Wimmera band Cover 2 Cover perform.

The ball is at Horsham College’s Ian O. Maroske Hall on August 16.

People can bring their own food and drinks.

A complimentary glass of wine in a souvenir wine glass will be provided on the night.

The dress code is ‘your most glamorous’.

Tickets are $50 a person and available from Wimmera Base Hospital’s reception or online at www.trybooking.com/89988.
