SINGER Sarah De Bono will be welcomed to the Border next month at a gala dinner raising money for the Albury-Wodonga cancer centre.
The Voice finalist will perform alongside Border artists Mikaila Grealy, Liam Dalby, Danny Phegan, Melissa Connelly and Angie Vee.
It will be the third gala hosted by the Albury Wodonga Regional Cancer Centre Trust Fund.
The two previous dinners have raised more than $76,000 towards the $2 million target to establish the cancer centre.
Trust fund chairwoman Di Thomas said they were aiming to raise more than $35,000 this year.
About 280 people are expected to attend and MC Glenn Starr said there would be a variety of entertainment, including international ballet dancer Lilly Bones and Wangaratta’s Amanuael Visser, who appeared on Young Talent Time.
Starr said guests would also hear from cancer patient James O’Neil about his experiences and how the cancer centre would benefit somebody suffering from the disease.
This year’s dinner will be at The Cube in Wodonga after being held in Albury the past two years.
“We wanted to spread it over both sides of the Border because the cancer centre supports all regions,” Ms Thomas said.
An 18-carat white gold and diamond ring, inspired by the design of the new centre, will be auctioned on the night.
Tickets for the Friday, May 16, event cost $120 and are available on (02) 6022 9311 or by visiting thecubewodonga.com.au.
