Canberra is chock-a-block with charity balls but this one has always had more than a hint of glamour.
The Luton Charity Ball is on again, this year at the National Convention Centre on Saturday, August 19.
The gorgeous Ricki-Lee Coulter is the feature performer, with barrister and comedia Costas Kilias providing the laughs.
It will have a Santorini theme, with an Ouzo Bar, plate-smashing arena and Greek dancing.
The ball is the brainchild of Luton Properties, headed by Richard Luton who will be wearing a suit he picked up in San Francisco.
"We like ours to be exciting and a bit fashionable, but no doubt for every ball, people liked to get dressed up and look nice," he said.
This year, the ball will be supporting three heroic local charities; Hartley Lifecare, Project Independence and Karinya House
Last year it l raised more than $160,000 for Lifeline, Menslink and Ozhelp.
