LADIES and gentlemen, the time has come to frock up and have the night off for the St Patrick's parents and friends Blooming Mad ball on May 27.

The night is a fundraiser for the school, but organiser Tash Haynes says that it is about so much more.

"The event is a chance for everyone in the community, not just parents and friends of children at St Patrick's, to stop and smell the flowers,

"Visually, the venue will be beautiful, and we hope that the night will really bring the community together,” Mrs Haynes said.

There will also be a great showcasing of local talent.

"We are absolutely supporting the local community, music will be by Bushfire, catering will be by local Sue Prince, along with a number of great auction pieces from Di Pain and esteemed photographer Scott Bridle.”

Babysitting services are available along with a courtesy bus, and tickets are $120 for a couple available from St Patrick's and the St George florist.
