EXCITEMENT is building for next month’s Mayoral Cabaret with a famous musician leading the event.
Ross Wilson and his band will take centre stage at the Millicent War Memorial Civic and Arts Centre on May 31 with Steamboat Willie as support act.
Wattle Range Mayor Peter Gandolfi said he was delighted the former Daddy Cool and Mondo Rock lead singer, who penned rock classics such as Eagle Rock, would take part in the charity event.
“Funds raised will assist the Leukaemia Foundation to build further accommodation in Adelaide for country people who need to go to the city for treatment,” the mayor said.
“Facilities for children at the Millicent and Penola hospitals will also be boosted through the annual Give Me 5 For Kids Appeal staged by Mount Gambier radio station 5SE.”
He said the Millicent Lions had again volunteered to operate the bar while the light supper would be provided by a fundraising auxiliary associated with the Leukaemia Foundation.
“Without the support of these clubs, other volunteers and business sponsors, the Mayoral Cabaret would not be possible,” Mr Gandolfi said.
Tickets are $60 per person and tables of 12 are available by booking through the Wattle Range Council’s main office in Millicent.
The past two Mayoral Cabaret events have raised over $16,000 to support youth at risk through the Noorla Yo-Long Blue Light youth camp at Rendelsham and purchase equipment for the Penola and Millicent hospitals.
