Support wanted for charity ball
The Rotary Club of Umina Beach is seeking further support for its Central Coast Youth Charity Gala Ball.
The ball is being organised with the Top Blokes Foundation and is being promoted as one of the region's largest black tie fundraisers.
"We invite you to join us for a fun evening with fantastic food and wine and a band that is sure to keep you dancing all night long," said club president Mr Rouel Vergara.
"The goal is to raise funds to expand the Top Blokes' mentoring programs for young males, to improve their mental wellbeing and support them to make healthy life choices.
"The evening will be full of colorful performances, magical entertainment and much fun," he said.
This year's theme will be Fire meets Ice.
"We hope this theme will ignite guest passion to raise some much-needed funds for Top Blokes Foundation and their work on the Central Coast," he said.
The theme is also reminiscent of the emotions that can come into play when young men engage in the Top Blokes Foundation program, with ice reflecting feelings of sadness, loneliness and isolation with fire representing feelings of hope, warmth and power.
Mr Vergara also said the club members had thought up several activities to help raise funds on the night.
"The night will be filled with roving performers.
"There will be plenty of live music for dancing," Mr Vergara said.
The club is currently seeking sponsors for the event.
The ball will be held on November 9 at the Gosford RSL Club.
