If you fancy a swing in the dark to shed some light on an important issue, pencil in this weekend.

The Broken Hill Country Club will be lit up with fluro lights on Friday from 6pm in a bid to raise money for Bravehearts charity.

Bravehearts aims to protect children from child sexual assault; right now one in five children will be sexually assaulted before they turn 18.

Local woman Tamara Cuffe has already raised $1800 for the cause but hopes that after Friday's event she could put more towards the charity.

"I thought it was a good idea to combine a fun activity with an urge to help out children in need," Ms Cuffe said.

"Not only will it be a night of laughs, but money raised will be donated to Bravehearts as it strives to make Australia the safest place in the world to raise a child

"Even if we just raise $100, its $100 more that Bravehearts didn't have. Every bit counts."

The event costs $25 per player which includes dinner and a four-person Ambrose competition.

Registration is at 6pm for a 6.30pm start.

A number of items would also be auctioned off on the night including an Adelaide Crows football, Geelong team signed photograph and photo of Mitchell Clarke, signed by the Melbourne player.
