93.9 BayFM Geelong
Hundreds of locals have enjoyed this year's Geelong Mayoral Ball, while also raising money for charity.
Mayor JOHN MITCHELL says more than $80,000 dollars has been raised from the weekend event.
The money will go towards the Geelong Hospital Children's Ward, Scope, and St John of God Special Care Nursery.
The mayor says he’s proud that Geelong still has a strong community spirit in spite of it’s rapid growth.
“I’m sure that most of us would have relied on the services provided by these organisations at one time or another. I’m pleased that we can give something back to them,” he said.
