All proceeds after expenses will go to the ‘Drought Angels’ who support farms and farmers affected by the drought.

Drought Angels is a not for profit charity run by two sisters who wanted to do something constructive for the farmers.

Secretary of the Stroud Country Club, Joey Lyall, and her daughters Sage and Cassandra were the brains behind this not-to-be-missed event.

They have worked hard to secure entertainment by ‘whiskey Business’, and there will be a plethora of fantastic prizes to have auctioned off on the night.

One lucky attendee will also take away the lucky door prize of a $3000 holiday voucher, kindly donated by North Star Motors.

Organiser Joey Lyall told News Of The Area, ‘One afternoon whilst digging thistles out of the back paddocks, the topic of conversation was on the current drought.”

“With the recent news that 100% of NSW is now classed as drought affected, and with the minimal support offered to those struggling, we thought it was time to show our support.”

“The idea of the ball came about from previous balls held around the state in support of our farmers that were a success in raising much needed funds, so we thought it would be a great opportunity for our small town to frock up and show their support.”

“We have been overwhelmed by the support from our local community to date, from the number of tickets sold for the event to the generosity of items donated for our auction.”

Due to the overwhelming interest and to maximise the profits on the night for ‘Drought Angels’, the organisers will be opening up the auction and live entertainment to the public from 8pm for a small donation of $20.

The are some great auction prizes that are not to be missed.

Ticket purchases and further enquiries can be made through the Stroud Country Club on 49945264 or via ‘sticky tickets’ online.
