Popular comedian stands up to host 2018 Isaac gala

Comedian Terry Hansen will headline an impressive line-up of entertainment at next month’s Mayor’s Charity Ball in Moranbah.

The stand-up comedian and entertainer, best known for his 15-year stint as the funnyman on Brisbane radio’s top-rating 97.3FM breakfast show, is the Master of Ceremonies for the Isaac region’s gala night of nights.

Hansen said he was excited about taking to the stage to host the black-tie community event on Saturday, August 11.

“Having spent a bit of time in Central Queensland and the Isaac working on cane farms, where I learned to drive tractors planting cane, I know how passionate the communities are about getting behind a great cause,” he said.

“It’s going to be a great night under the stars in Moranbah’s Town Square raising money for the Isaac Regional Charity Fund in support of mental health initiatives.”

It is an issue close to Hansen’s heart as founder of the Men’s Health Group DADBODS.

“We gather each week to train and talk. The more we talk, the better we train,” he said

Hansen will be joined by an array of local talent, including musical acts Bulletproof Duo and Mezzanine, who will entertain the audience throughout the night.

Mayor Anne Baker said the Charity Ball was shaping up to be the biggest night in the event’s five-year history.

“We’ve been working hard to take this year’s event to the next level and there will be a few surprises in store for guests,” she said.

“Tickets are selling fast, so I wouldn’t be waiting til the last minute to grab a seat or a table as you may be disappointed, with only a couple of weeks until the big night.

 “It will truly be a night to remember, dancing and dining under the stars, but we are also raising money for an important and vital cause.”

The stylish black tie affair will feature a three-course dinner, live music and entertainment, prizes, charity auction and much more.

Tickets are on sale via Eventbrite:

Tickets are $125 per person, while tables of 10 are available for $1125, a saving of $125 or $12.50 per guest.

Mayor Baker acknowledged the generous support of the event's 2018 sponsors.

“We’ve had a record number of sponsors come aboard for this year’s event which is absolutely fabulous,” she said.

“The generous and valued support of Isaac businesses and organisations, through sponsorship and donations, plays a major part in the continuing success of the event.

“I thank all our 2018 sponsors for supporting this important community event.”

Isaac Regional Charity Fund is a deductible gift recipient, which means it can receive tax-deductible gifts.
