There’s been a last-minute change of venue but the annual Flying Doctor ball is still a goer this weekend.

The Royal Flying Doctor Service Broken Hill Women’s Auxiliary have been busy planning the Flying Doctor Ball which is on Saturday.

The ball will be held at the Whitehouse Convention Centre in Boughtman Street, across from the Lamb Oval.

It was originally going to be held at the Civic Centre, but due to the recent closure had to be moved.

“Council have worked really well with us,” Auxiliary president Coral Ford said.

“We are very grateful for their help and for how accommodating the Whitehouse has been.”

The Auxiliary will be busy Friday and Saturday organising decorating and the final touches.

“The event will be exactly the same, only the venue will change.

“We have a great team that is pulling together to ensure this is one of our bigger and better events.”

There will be live music by local band Straight Up, a buffet dinner, a Pig Auction, best dressed prizes, raffles and door prizes.

There are still tickets available and they are $70.

They are being sold at Elders in Blende Street and online by contacting yarramba@bigpond.com.

“Our ticket sales have been going along quite well, the change of venue hasn’t impacted sales,” Mrs Ford said.

“The ball is one of our main fundraisers, alongside selling the Christmas puddings.

“We encourage support from local people. Everyone is welcome to come.

“I don’t think there is a single family in the region that hasn’t been helped by the RFDS.”

Tickets are being sold until 3pm Wednesday and people can pick up their tickets by then as well.
