Black Tie and Boots Ball, August 11, 2018 | Photos

There was plenty of great food, entertainment and fun times on Saturday night, for the Black Tie and Boots Ball, with almost 700 people attending the event at the Bathurst Goldfields. 

It was a night of fundraising for Rural Aid, with the target of $150,000 reached to help fund a specialised counsellor on the ground to help tackle the mental health problems associated with the drought. 

Rural Aid founder Charles Alder said it was fantastic to see so much money raised. 

Gold Logie winner Grant Denyer was the MC on the night, with Guy Sebastian the headline entertainment guest.

The Heydays, featuring local musician Kyle Manning, performed as a supporting act.
