Mayor Jenny Whitney will host the inaugural Mayor's Charity Masquerade Ball, to be held on Saturday 10th October at the Proserpine Entertainment Centre to raise awareness and funds for the Black Dog Institute.
One in five Australians is affected by mental illness every year, with one of the most common of these being depression.
Mayor Jenny Whitney said mental illness touches people of all ages and from all walks of life.
“The Black Dog Institute is a not-for-profit organisation and a world leader in the diagnosis, treatment and prevention of mental illness,” Mayor Whitney said.
“I’m very honoured to host the first Mayor’s Charity Ball in the Whitsunday region but more importantly, to raise money and shine the spotlight on mental health issues which can also affect family and friends in our own communities,”
“In addition to research and treatment, the Black Dog Institute focuses on providing education programs however running these are strongly dependent on the generosity of individuals and corporate supporters so it would be great to see the community get involved,”
“The event will promise a fun-filled night of entertainment with guest speaker Mark Beretta, great food, live and silent auctions and lots of prizes; I hope to see a good community turn out.”
Doors open at 6pm with guests to be seated at 6:30pm. Dress code – Formal/black tie.Tickets are available for $135 at the Proserpine Entertainment Centre on 4945 2312.
