MATER Dei Catholic’s benefit night to support the Langfield family is fast approaching and organisers have been working tirelessly to make it a night to remember.
Patrick Langfield, 13, and his father died in tragic circumstances earlier this year and this Friday will see the community rally together to raise funds for his brother and sister as they move through their teenage years.
College principal Greg Miller said they had already sold 150 tickets for the event but it was hoped this would increase before sales closed on Wednesday.
“It will be a great night, the organising committee have done a wonderful job,” he said.
“We’ve been overwhelmed by the generosity of local businesses and humbled by expressions of support to assist on the night and before the night.
“It’s very reassuring to have people want to come together with the objective of providing monetary support for the Langfield family who have been a special part of this community.”
An array of items will be auctioned off during the event and a major raffle will see someone win a five-day trip to the Whitsundays for two adults and two children.
Some of the auction items up for grabs will include framed and signed St George, Sydney Roosters, Hawthorn, Melbourne Storm and Sydney Swans jumpers along with a range of weekends away, a kitchen package valued at $10,000 and a helicopter joy flight.
Attendees will also be treated to a number of cabaret acts by leading Wagga musicians and performers, including Jamie Way, Kelsey Holmes and Troy Fisher.
Tickets can be bought from both Mater Dei Catholic College and the primary school, Allison Music, Kooringal Hair and Kristopher Grayden Jewellers before Wednesday.
