A tired Fiona Culley took time on Sunday morning to be thankful for the success of Saturday night’s Bald and Beautiful Ball.

Her son Hugh, who is suffering from a heart condition, was taken to hospital on Sunday with an ear infection.

The incident was a reminder of why she organised this fundraiser.

An estimated $14,000 was raised from ticket sales and auction items, edging the committee closer to their $50,000 goal.

“People were incredibly generous,” Mrs Culley said.

“I’m still in shock, I’m blown away.”

Saturday night’s ball had a great party atmosphere thanks to students from Mater Dei Catholic College students who donated time as DJs.

Staff at Charles Sturt University cooked and presented the meals.
