Wonderful fundraiser for Echuca Specialist School

By Lachlan Durling

ECHUCA Specialist School is gearing up to hold the biggest fundraising event on their calendar — the annual ball.

This year’s Winter Wonderland Ball in June will help raise funds for playground equipment — valued at about $25,000 — for the new school site on Wilkinson Dve.

And the school is putting the call out to anyone interested in securing a table or sponsoring the event to contact them before the June ball.

‘‘It’s a fairly substantial fundraiser for us, in previous years we’ve purchased iPads and put it toward a bus using the money from the event,’’ business manager Tracie Paine said.

‘‘It’s a great night to get together and support the school — we’d love to have any sponsors who can help us come on board,’’ administration officer Jenni Candy said.

‘‘And anyone who may have a table of eight to 10 people already are encouraged to book soon.’’

There are a range of sponsorship options available for businesses, Jenni and Tracie thanked the ongoing support of gold event sponsors Rock solid Garden Supplies and Moama Bowling Club.

The Winter Wonderland Ball is on June 14 at the Moama Bowling Club, tickets are available from the school for $100 which includes a two-course meal and drinks.
