John Paul Young set to join residents for Variety ball fun

THE Gladstone Variety Gala Ball is back, and this year John Paul Young will be joining in the fun.

The ball will take place at the Gladstone Entertainment and Convention Centre on Saturday, May 31.

John Paul Young will sing that classic 1978 hit Love Is In The Air, and is set to mingle with the crowd and educate them on the importance of supporting Variety - the Children's Charity.

"I always love to do all I can for Variety and the amazing work they do for sick, disadvantaged and special needs kids, so I'm looking forward to seeing you all there on May 31," he said.

Variety Queensland regional fundraising executive, Michelle Stafford, said it is very exciting to have celebrities such as John Paul Young support regional events hosted by the charity.

"JPY has been a long-term supporter of Variety and we appreciate everything he does for us - this is absolutely going to be a night not to miss," she said.

This year's theme is Sequins and Suits, and an appearance by popular hypnotist Shane St James, along with local band The Corporates, will make for a fabulous Saturday night out.

An array of auction prizes will be on offer, while canapés, a two-course dinner, beer, wine, soft drink and entertainment are included in the $150 ticket.
