A spectacular highlight on the festive calendar is the upcoming Milbi Gala Ball, that is set to take guests to an extravagant underwater oasis while raising funds for several local charities.
The evening will be full of allure and style as the community comes together to celebrate and raise awareness about local sea turtles and the environment.
Dressed in bow ties or ball gowns the crowd will enjoy canapes, a two-course meal, drinks and entertainment, which will feature as part of the sea soiree raising money for a good cause.
Guests at the Milbi Gala Ball last year didn’t just enjoy an elegant evening of entertainment, they also dug deep for a good cause, raising $23,000.
Arts, Culture and Events portfolio spokesperson Cr John Learmonth said this year's Milbi Gala Ball would transform the Multiplex ballroom into an underwater oasis.
Cr Learmonth said the glamourous Milbi Gala Ball would be bigger and better this year and he encouraged community members to frock up for the grand occasion.
“This is a great event on the local social calendar, there will be a fantastic opening number by some of Bundaberg’s best local dancers, and entertainment by The Accidents will keep the guests dancing the night away,” he said.
“Last year the event raised well over $20,000 to help ocean conservation and I have no doubt this year will be just as successful.
“The ball is a standout feature on the annual Milbi Festival program, which is 10 days of events and activities celebrating local culture, history and of course our turtles.”
