Ball puts a chill in the air
SUPPORTING Chemotherapy in Cooloola volunteers have thanked local sponsors for their help raising money to build and maintain the Gympie units where chemotherapy patients receive treatment and can stay with their loved ones.
The sponsors are helping stage the Frozen in Time gala charity ball, to be held at the Civic Centre on Saturday, July 12. The gala will feature a night of glamour and entertainment, three-course gourmet meal, dancing, frozen cocktails and charity and silent auctions.
SCIC president Gordon Owen said on the night of the ball "our infamous auctioneer Matt Condon, from Harcourts, will be auctioning off some amazing items in our major auction, which will include an air-conditioner donated by TSR Gympie, four tickets in a VIP suite to Katy Perry concert on November 25 in Homebush, artwork from Helping Hands and a unique piece of jewellery from Mia Bella".
"Helping Hands from Brisbane will supply a number of limited-edition art pieces for both our major and silent auctions," Mr Owen said.
