On Saturday 30th April, six stunning young ladies and their handsome partners took centre stage at the Charity Debutante Ball which they organised to provide support for Forbes CanAssist. The group conducted fundraising barbeques at Woolworths and Bernardi’s as well as drawing the Monster Garden Raffle on the night. Through their fundraising efforts they have raised in excess of $1700 dollars and a cheque presentation will be arranged once profits have been finalised. Rachel Wythes choreographed the groups dance and their performance delighted their family and friends.
Sophie Nash and Lewis Little were the perfect Flower girl and Page boy as they led Tahlia Nash & Warren Baxter, Grace Quirk & Hamish Coles, Isobelle Herbert & Daniel Ashcroft, Jessy-Lea Byrnes & Nicholas Mulligan, Finnlay Bennett & Issac Carlisle and Chelsea Turner & Cody Banks for the presentation ceremony to Damian Byrne.
Finnlay Bennett drew the raffle with Karen Norris winning first prize. Grace Quirk spoke on behalf of the group and thanked all of the people who helped to make the night so memorable. She spoke of the origins of their chosen charity, CanAssist, and the support that the Forbes branch provides to local cancer patients and their families.
