Last Saturday, October 09, was a big night out in Tully, when the Tully Friends of the Hospital Foundation hosted a Charity Ball at the Tully MPC.


The venue was beautifully decorated, the food was delicious, the drinks were plentiful, the music was great, and the prizes drawn on the night were fantastic. If you missed this year’s event, you need to book early for next year.


The Graham Academy of Dance School entertained the crowd early in the evening. The Cassowary Coasters Line dancers performed a few items and then had the crowd up dancing the “Zorba” and “Nut Bush” dances.


The young crew from the Tully Friends of the Hospital Foundation did a brilliant job in planning, organising, and decorating, and they are to be commended for their efforts. 


They would like to thank everyone who helped in any way make the Ball the success it was, without the helpers behind the scenes and the generous donations by many local and regional businesses, these events would not achieve their desired success.


An unexpected part of the evening was a very generous donation from the Cassowary Coasters Line Dancers Club of $1,000, accepted by Bev Haack, a hard-working member of the Tully Friends of the Hospital Foundation.


To those who attended, a big thank you, we know everyone had a great night and we would love to see you all next year.


The Charity Ball raised $4,927.00, which is a fantastic effort. The funds will go towards a Palliative Care room at the Tully Hospital.
