Bundaberg Ability Ball celebrates fun for all

Get your legwarmers on and step back in time with the upcoming retro 80s and 90s party as part of the Bundaberg Ability Ball.

As a not-for-profit organisation dedicated to the provision of innovative, best-practice services to people living with disability, Community Lifestyle Support strive to create new and exciting ways to foster community inclusion.

Each of the organisation's Ability Balls, now annual events in both Bundaberg and the Fraser Coast, constitute our signature efforts in this regard.

The Bundaberg Ability Balls is designed to bring the entire community together to celebrate people’s abilities.

While the benefits of providing a genuinely inclusive opportunity for people with disability to dress up and celebrate diversity are significant, the community awareness benefits of such an event are also enormously powerful.

“We believe that by providing people with disability, the general public, local businesses and the community sector with an opportunity to engage in a positive shared experience, we have found an ideal way to promote inclusion and understanding” CLS CEO Damien Tracey said.

This year the theme of 80s and 90s aims to allow all to forget the stresses of the past 18 months and to dress up and have some fun.

That 80s and 90s Band will have everyone on the dance floor at the Bundaberg Ability Ball with lots of crowd favourites from that era.

“It was so disappointing last year to have to cancel the ball and you can feel the excitement in the air as we lead up to this event,” event coordinator Trevor Sands said.

“Some will dress up in 80s and 90s costume and some will wear the traditional ball outfits.

“Either way we just love to see everyone come together as one and enjoy a genuine night out.”

The Bundaberg Ability Ball is the highlight of the calendar for many people and tickets are selling fast.

The event will be held on Saturday 11 September at the Bundaberg Multiplex.

Tickets for the Bundaberg Ability Ball are available via Trybooking or in person at Community Lifestyle Support Office Ashfield Road, Kalkie.
