Farmers Ball

Around 110 people dusted off their best attire on Saturday for a night of fun at the Farmers Ball.

Event organiser Lou Green said it was a really good night, with a great turnout of people.

The event was a chance for farmers and community members to gather for a night of fun and boost morale. The night was also a fundraiser for local drought relief. 

Organisers have partnered with Drought Angels, a regional charity that provides stock feed, financial and moral support to farming families in times of natural disasters. 

Ms Green said they are still adding up the total amount for the fundraiser, but estimates the night raised some $5,000 for the Drought Angels.

The night also featured a fundraising auction of a painting of a local landscape by Sydney artist Ken Tucker – completed live at the Ball – as well as an auction of a framed Wallabies jersey signed by the current squad.
