Dual-purpose Police Ball

THE Police Ball set down for September 8 at the Clarence River Jockey Club in Grafton will not only raise funds for the newly formed YouthWorx Grafton committee, it will celebrate 150 years of NSW policing.

The ball is a black tie affair and will feature live music, police memorabilia, canapés and a meal.

YouthWorx Grafton was established to enable workshops and youth events for teenagers in the greater Grafton area.

The group's marketing manager said the aim was to improve the social environment for local youth and though the fundraising event was only open to those over 18, funds raised would be used for future youth-orientated events.

YouthWorx has a Facebook group (facebook.com/groups/youthworxgrafton) which was set up to encourage ideas for fun events.

"It is also open for everyone to post what is happening in Grafton for youth," Mr Shearer said.

Tickets are $85 per person and can be bought at Buckleys Music, 89 Prince St, Grafton.
