PHOTOS: Police host masked ball for the kids
MURGON police had a ball at the weekend, raising funds to keep a program aimed at reducing youth crime afloat.
The ladies dusted off their ball gowns, the gentlemen their suits, and everyone found their dancing shoes and topped off their look with a fabulous mask.
The event, at the Murgon PCYC Hall on Saturday, was jam-packed with entertainment. There were auctions, raffles and dancing.
All funds raised went to the South Burnett PCYC's Byte Nite.
In Murgon, kids as young as three years old are dropped off at 7pm for a night of supervised fun every Saturday, where they can stay until 11pm.
Despite being successful and having many dedicated volunteers, the program had no consistent funding.
All proceeds raised from the ball will be funnelled into keeping the program up and running, and keeping South Burnett youth off the streets in an effort to reduce youth crime.
