The Camperdown hospital ball is making a return after four years and the excitement is building. Local nurses Joy Bailey (l-r), Sue Larkins, Vicki Brebner, Mary Barr and Sam Malone (front) embrace the ‘masquerade’ theme.

MASK up and join the fun, the Camperdown hospital’s annual ball is back by popular demand.

The event is making a comeback after a four year break, with this year’s theme being a masquerade ball.

Organiser Vicki Brebner said funds raised from the event would be shared between the hospital’s acute ward and Merindah Lodge.

“Tickets for the ball sell really quickly because it’s such a fun night out,” she said.

“It’s a great chance for the ladies to frock up and having the masquerade theme really adds another element of fun.”

Tickets have been set at $100 per person with meals provided by local caterer Darren Maskell and entertainment by renowned Melbourne band Noisy Neighbours.

The ticket price also includes beer, wine or soft drink with other spirits available for purchase.

A major raffle will also be held on the night along with lucky door prizes and the ‘TV chains’ will also make a return, where ticket holders are given a lock combination to break the chains and win the prize.

Camperdown hospital’s annual ball will be held on Saturday, April 23 at the Camperdown Theatre Royal.

Tickets go on sale on Friday, February 12 from 8.30am at the hospital’s main office with tables of 10 to 12 people available.

Reservations can be made by calling Ms Brebner on 0438 372 664 or Tash Swayn on 0419 541 314, but tickets must be paid for to secure bookings.
