Condobolin’s annual B&S Ball will be held in just over two weeks, with tickets now on sale at the early bird rate.

The B&S, which is on Saturday 11 July, will be held at the Condobolin Race Track for the first time this year.

Internationally renowned singer Kirsty Lee Akers is performing on the night.

“She has been touring a lot in Nashville, in the United States, so we have been really lucky to get her out here,” said Tara Baxter, the President of the B&S.

“It is the first time that she has come to this region.”

Kirsty has just released a new single, ‘That’s How You Get Famous’.

“That will be the theme for the evening,” Tara said. “They can get dressed up as a famous person like Elvis or Monroe – we’ve left it open to interpretation.”

Kirsty will be accompanied by the Wayne Rider Band from Goulburn, who have been a hit at previous B&Ss.

The Race Track gates will open at 2pm on 11 July, while the bar will be open from 3pm. The B&S committee is warning attendees that no alcohol, glass or food dye will be permitted on the grounds.

Tickets are available for the early bird rate of $100 until Thursday 9 July. They can be purchased by emailing condowinterbns@hotmail.com or phoning 0427 851 231 to pay by direct deposit.

Alternatively, tickets can be purchased at the gate for $130.

“We have a very small committee and are always looking for helpers,” Tara said.

“Without community involvement from volunteers and community groups, we wouldn’t be able to get our ball off the ground.

“Because of all the new rules and regulations, a lot of balls are closing and we don’t want that to happen to us here in Condo.”

Anyone interested in getting involved is encouraged to email Tara at condowinterbns@hotmail.com or phone her on 0427 851 231.

The profits raised from the B&S are donated back to the community groups and organisations which are involved, including the various sporting clubs, local schools and the Rotary Club of Condobolin.

“This year, we have been lucky enough to have Leading Appliances donate prizes for Best Dressed, so that is great that they have come on board,” Tara said.

“I would also really like to thank the committee – Kathy Parnaby, Melissa Barby, Bruce Patton and Rex Press – for all their hard work. It is a lot of work that they put in that people don’t realise to make this ball a success.”
