Byron High Principal Peter King and parents show off some of the art going up for auction at the school’s first gala ball.

Byron High School is holding its first ever Social Fundraiser Gala Ball for parents and citizens on Saturday October 12 at the school from 6.30pm.

For your $50 ticket you’ll get a three-course meal and entertainment  by local band The Detectives and the Melbourne-based Simon Wright Band. MC for the night is the fabulous Mick O’Regan.

An art auction will feature some fabulous works donated by incredibly generous local artists as well as some beautiful pieces from other local businesses. There will also be a big raffle.

The aim of the event is to raise funds for a long overdue bus shelter for the children. The school was founded in 1987 and has stood without shelters for the last 26 years so parents think it is about time they provided shelter from both the sun and the rain elements for our kids.

The fully licensed event promises to be a fun night for all locals, regardless of whether or not you have kids at the school.

For more details you can check out their Facebook page – Byron Bay High School Ball. To book a ticket call 6685 8188.
