LIVERPUDLIANS are invited to help raise funds for a Liverpool cancer centre and a local disabled association, while dressed up to the nines at a council event next month.
Liverpool mayor Ned Mannoun will be holding the area's inaugural Mayoral Ball to raise money for the Liverpool Cancer Wellness Centre and the Youth Adult Disabled Association.
The ball will be held on August 23 and Cr Mannoun said it "promises to be the city's premier event of the year".
The black-tie event includes a three-course meal, live entertainment and the opportunity to network with civic leaders and business people.
"While having fun, you will also be supporting two important local charities," Cr Mannoun said.
"I hope to raise $50,000 to share between the two causes.
"I encourage you to support this great event and contribute to organisations which work closely with some of our most vulnerable citizens."
Liverpool Hospital is building the new Cancer Wellness Centre in Goulburn Street, where it will be close to the Cancer Therapy Centre.
The centre will be used by patients recovering from cancer and will have the feel of a home, rather than a hospital and offer therapies for patients following cancer treatment.
The Youth Adult Disabled Association has provided social support for people with disabilities for more than 25 years.
The association runs a day-centre group two days a week at a local community hall where people participate in activities to enhance their confidence and living skills.
The ball will be held at La Roma Function Centre and tickets are on sale now.
