The Taylors Lakes Lions Club is hosting a night of music, laughter and fun – all in the name of a good cause.

The second annual Kids Cancer Research Gala fundraising evening will be held on Saturday, May 25 at the Taylors Lakes Hotel.

Lions club president Phil Clinkaberry is hoping to raise more than last year’s total.

“Our first event last year was a big success. We had over 80 people attend and raised about $5000,” he said. “This year, we’re aiming for 150 people to attend and to beat our total.”

The night will include live entertainment, a live auction and a silent auction.

Mr Clinkaberry said cover band

Times Like These has donated its services and will keep the crowd entertained and the dance floor filled for the entire night.

All funds raised will go to the Australian Lions Childhood Cancer Research Foundation (ALCCRF).

“We thought that since we’re a Lions Club, it would be appropriate to support a Lions charity,” he said.

“The good thing about this is that all the money will go towards the cause and not things like admin.”

The ALCCRF provides funding to childhood cancer research conducted right across Australia, which specifically targets improved survival rates.

Tickets for the fundraiser are $60 and include a two course meal.

Patrons are encouraged to bring $2 coins for the coin roll and some extra funds to participate in other aspects of the night.

Online payment facilities will be available for auction items.
