Brigalow's dance for dollars is on again

THE takings from last year's very successful Brigalow annual dance have been handed over to the Chinchilla Branch of Cancer Council Queensland.

The Brigalow Public Hall Committee raised a whopping $2000 in the one night through entry and raffle tickets for cancer research - a cause very close to the Brigalow community's heart, vice-president Mick Burke said.

"We've had a bad run with cancer in our community," Mr Burke said.

"I admire the Chinchilla Cancer Council.

"They're really helping people."

Mr Burke said the enormous success of the 2015 annual dance was a result of getting the word out early through advertising, something the Brigalow Public Hall Committee were planning to throw their weight behind again to hopefully replicate last year's great turnout.

The annual Brigalow Public Hall Dance will be on Saturday, August 20.
