PCYC has a ball for charity

JOHN Kendall had aspirations for it to become their signature event and true to form, the Rio Tinto Alcan PCYC Charity Ball dotted all the i's and crossed all the t's.

Saturday night's ball was a huge success with the Gladstone PCYC branch manager confident all the hard preparations had paid off.

"We wanted to come up with a signature event," Sgt Kendall said.

The ball will become an annual fundraising event.

More than $20,000 was raised on the night courtesy of some big bidding on auction memorabilia like an AC/DC guitar (sold for $3700) and signed 2011 State of Origin jersey ($3000).
