ADDICTION HOPE: Inside the rehab transforming lives
BAYSIDE Transformations transforms not only individual lives but the community as a whole.
That is according to the Hervey Bay rehabilitation service's chief executive officer Tina Davie.
To continue its life-changing work, which the seven graduate profiles below are a testament to, the organisation relied heavily on fundraising from its main event of the year - the Spring Gala.
Set to kick off at 6.30pm at Maryborough's Brolga Theatre on September 27, guests in their best spring outfits will be treated to a night of good food, great company, raffles and dancing.
Ms Davie said she hoped the night would attract around 200 guests.
"This event is all about helping people like these graduates, helping them get through the program, all the profit goes directly to helping people in recovery," she said.
"Come along and enjoy the night."
Last year's House Rules winners Josh and Brendan will be guest speakers and local band Soul City will be performing.
What: Annual fundraising ball
When: September 27
Where: Maryborough's Brolga Theatre
Alcohol will be available for purchase on the night.
