Ball ensures a fashionable climax

THE Warwick 150th celebrations will come to a fashionable climax tomorrow night, when the Mayoral Charity Gala Ball swings into action.

Warwick Credit Union’s Katie Kinlyside has her dress picked out and said she was looking forward to a night of entertainment.

“It should be a good night – I’m not sure whether anyone on my table will be coming in historic dress but we’re all excited about it,” she said.

Mission Australia Employment Solutions Warwick have been the main sponsor for the ball and regional manager Deeann Natividad said it was a cause for celebration, for more than one reason.

“Mission Australia celebrated its 100th birthday in 2009, so our organisation can understand how excited Warwick is to celebrate this milestone,” she said.

“We’ve been here since 2000 in the Warwick community and we thought, with the ball being one of the flagship events, we certainly wanted to be involved.”

Mission Australia staff will be busy tomorrow afternoon transforming the netball courts at WIRAC into a ballroom fit for the Mayor.

Mrs Natividad said the organisation had opted to purchase decorations and look after the embellishment of the room.

The items on the three-course menu has been kept under wraps, but the entertainment is no secret – popular five-man band Manhattan will reunite for the night.

Band member Cedric Robbins said the group were looking forward to their first gig in a decade.

“We’ve never had a reunion with the five of us together again,” he said.

“It will be a great thing to perform on stage in front of a live audience again.”

There are still limited numbers of seats left.

The following day, ball-goers will be able to relax and recuperate in Leslie Park for the Party in the Park celebration, which will see out the 150th celebrations.

To purchase tickets for the Mayoral ball, phone council by noon today on 4660 0300.
