Prostate Cancer ballroom dancing fundraisers in Broken Hill

From the Prostate Cancer Foundation
of Australia website
Community Event
Broken Hill Prostate Cancer Support Group is going all out this weekend with three fundraising events to help raise funds to fight this form of cancer.

There will be plenty of dining and dancing and a Gala Ball which is the third year that the ball has been held, and which each year has been timed to coincide with the Queen's Birthday holiday long weekend.

Apart from raising much needed funds to fight prostate cancer and support sufferers and their families, the events provide an opportunity for locals and visitors to get out their ballroom dancing gear and have a great time.

The Broken Hill Prostate Cancer Support Group was formed in 2008 and is affiliated with the Prostate Cancer Foundation of Australia.  The group has two main aims -
  • to provide support to men diagnosed with prostate cancer (and their partners/families)
  • to raise awareness and provide education about prostate cancer to the wider community
Events details are -

If you attend all three events, the cost for the dancing is $30 (excluding Muso Club's meals - dinner Friday and lunch Sunday which are paid for separately to the Muso Club).

There is still room at all events.  One hundred guests are booked so far for the Gala Ball and there's room for at least another 20 people.  You don't have to be a dancer to attend everyone is welcome.

The Gala Ball will feature live music and singing from well known Mildura resident Geoff Evans, who I'm told has a fabulous voice.

For more details please call 08 8087 4554, Mrs Vilma Stubing.  If no answer, leave a message and she'll call you back.

Donations for prostate cancer research and support can be made via the Prostate Cancer Foundation of Australia website - www.prostate.org.au.  Donations to the local Broken Hill Prostate Cancer Support Group can be made via contact with Mr Keith Stubing, Mrs Vilma Stubing (President) or Mr Laurie Camilleri who can be reached through the Broken Hill page of the Prostate Cancer Foundation of Australia website - see link below


Enjoy the dancing (and dining), have a great time and support a very worthy cause, cheers, Jane D

As there is a link in the article I have removed 'hanner's' comment due to security risk to my readers who may click on an unidentified link. I have however reprinted her comment below with the unknown link replaced with the word associated with the link 'arginine'. See comment -

    "Prostate cancer is increasing it's effect to the entire planet and it is alarming that it is currently affecting every man who are at the age of fifty and above. Together with this is the higher risk of people having heart problems because of not enough blood flow within our body according to the article about heart and arginine benefits by possibly promoting proper blood flow within the entire body."
    Apologies to hanna for any offence this action may have caused, however, the link could take a reader to 'anywhere' on the internet. They can look up 'arginine' independently if they wish to.

    Additional note to hanna. Your comment is most likely genuine but I have no available way of telling apart from risking clicking on your link which could possibly give my computer a virus etc.... Assuming it's a genuine comment, I thank you for making a contribution to my blog.
