Dance all night for good cause

THE Brigalow and surrounding communities have turned out to glam up and support a cause close to the heart. The Brigalow Licensed Ball was held on Saturday night, to help raise money to support the Chinchilla Cancer Council.

Briaglow Hall committee treasurer Stefanie Burke said there were perhaps 100 people at the event.

"Lots of people came out to support us and I think we raised some good money,” Mrs Burke said.

"It was a lovely night.”

Each year the committee donate about $2000 to the Chinchilla Cancer Council, and Mrs Burke said she's hopeful they'll be able to donate a similar amount again. The ball was held in honour of Mick and Denise Burke, past members who had lost their battle with cancer. Mr Burke was the president of the committee.

"Lots of family and friends turned up in support,” Mrs Burke said.

"It had that lovely aspect.”
