FUNNYWOMAN and former Corryong schoolgirl Corinne Grant is the star attraction at a dinner organised to thank backers of cancer support group Brave Hearts on the Murray.
The television performer will host a $90-a-head gala dinner and dance on Saturday night to honour those who have helped the organisation over the past eight years.
Grant said she was looking forward to a fun night.
“I always love coming home and this is a cause close to my heart,” she said.
“I’ve been an ambassador for the National Breast Cancer Foundation for a number of years and I am always willing to help out causes which are so important.
“So buy tickets and come along.”
Brave Hearts on the Murray president Jenny Black said up to 25 plaques would be presented to those who have helped with projects such as dragonboat racing, pamper days, Belvoir Park rose garden and general fund-raising.
Funds raised on the night will go towards the Brave Book of Hope which is a compilation of Border residents’ cancer survival stories.
“It will feature stories from people who have gone through it.” Mrs Black said.
“Their words of wisdom will hopefully help people get through weeks of treatment and the shock they have cancer.”
Mrs Black said Grant had a connection to Brave Hearts through her father Don who helped start the rose garden.
Tickets for the dinner, being held at Commercial Club in Albury, are on sale at Hume Building Society branches until tomorrow.
