On Saturday evening, May 10, nine beautifully gowned debutantes and their elegantly attired partners were presented to Member for New England, Mr Adam Marshall, Deputy Mayor of the Gwydir Shire, Councillor Catherine Egan and Mr Ian Egan at the Debutante Ball held at the Bingara RSL Club.
Debs and their partners: Gabby Rampling and Daniel O’Connor, Lucie Boyle and Jack Mahoney, Kelsey Cooper and Taylor Holland-Wright, Charmaine Nowlan and Tom Mahoney, Maryellen Honeysett and Andrew Riley, Jaida Stevens and Jack Walton, Gabby O’Connor and Trent Wilson, Shannon McGarrity and Cameron Fletcher and Crystal Cooper and Matthew Blakey. Flower girls Lily Marshall and Scarlett Standerwick and page boys Sean Galvin, Wade Rampling (absent).
The young ladies and their partners danced the Pride of Erin and the Texas Tango before a delicious meal was served.
The well attended ball was a fund raiser for Ovarian Cancer research, organised by Nikki Galvin, Marilyn Dixon and their many helpers.
The event was a wonderful success, raising over $2000.00 plus the proceeds from the raffle.
