Sharon Strzelecki is known for her fondness of netball, indoor cricket, golf and even shot put, but next weekend the much-loved 'Kath and Kim' character will be lending a hand to Softball in Broken Hill.
A screening of the new Kath and Kim movie, "Kath and Kimderella", will be held at the Silver City Cinema, with all proceeds going back to the Softball Association to assist with the running costs of their upcoming season.
The movie is a spin-off of the popular television series, based on the relationship between a mother, Kath, her adult daughter, Kim, and Kim's "second best friend", Sharon.
The latest instalment sees the main characters go on a trip to Italy and become involved in their own fairytale.
The film was number one at the box office in its debut weekend and had the second highest opening to an Australian film in 2012, behind The Sapphires.
Tickets for the session, at 2pm on Sunday, September 30, cost $12 and includes nibbles and refreshments before the film.
There will also be prizes on offer from a door raffle, with tickets being sold on the day.
The fundraiser movie session will be the first opportunity for movie goers to see 'Kath and Kimderella' in Broken Hill.
Silver City Cinema Owner, John Wren, has recommended the film as a must see. "It is absolutely full of laughs and it's an Australian comedy as well.
"Coming down to the cinema for the session will give everyone a bit of variety for the Labour Day long weekend," he said.
Softball organiser, Leonie Channing, said the league was still looking for players to be a part of the next season.
"This year, more than ever, we need you to stop thinking about having a game and get out of the house and have some fun with friends.
"Two teams have already nominated, but we are still looking for at least two more sides.
"Any high school students wanting a game, we can organise a team for you to be put in, or see your PE teachers and get them to get a team together.
"All you ladies who once played, we would welcome you back as well," she said.
