A black-tie charity ball filled with fancy fun is descending on Wagga for the first time.
The inaugural Night of Knights ball will be held on Saturday and will be raising funds for three of the town’s children cancer charities, Ronald McDonald House, Country Hope and Give me Five for Kids.
Held at Wagga’s RSL Club, the evening will be filled with entertainment from comedic magician Phil Cass, nine-piece band Enormous Horns, as well as an auction and raffle.
Wagga’s Thomas Bros Toyota has organised the event, with manager Daniel Martelozzo saying it was important for the local business to give back to the community in some way.
“It’s a night to celebrate the courage of the kids suffering through cancer and the fantastic work that the charities here do,” he said.
Mr Martelozzo said he hoped to raise $12,000 for each charity on the night and see it become an annual event.
Committee member and organiser Emily Picciolo said the event had grown into something bigger than the committee expected.
“We had no idea it was going to be so successful and being able to support these local charities in this way is fantastic,” she said.
24 of the 322 tickets are still on sale, but with such an entertaining lineup there’s no guarantee they will last for long.
