MICK Burke has lost track of how many years the annual Brigalow Hall Dance has been going for.
"Thirty years?" he half asks himself before adding: "Actually it's probably closer to 40 years".
But this year, Mr Burke said the need for the annual dance was even more vital.
"We've had a lot of sadness in Brigalow because of cancer," he said.
But the misfortune has prompted the town to fight back and do what it can to combat the fatal illness, with the proceeds from this year's Brigalow Hall Dance going towards Cancer Council Queensland.
"Everybody's keen to try and raise funds," Mr Burke said.
As well as a licensed bar and live music, the night will also provide supper, entertainment for children and, of course, dancing!
The yearly event will be held at Brigalow Hall on Saturday, August 15, from 8pm-midnight.
Tickets are $12 for adults, $8 for high school students and $30 for families.
