The Koonoomoo Pickers and Packers Charity Ball went off without a hitch on Saturday night, despite the less than favourable weather conditions.
Cobram Barooga Apex Club organised the event and member Brad Sneddon said the wintry weather did not keep revellers away, with close to 800 people attending.
‘‘It went well, it was really well received,’’ Mr Sneddon said.
‘‘We’ve been getting really good feedback on Facebook from people who went.’’
Mr Sneddon said the charity ball would ‘‘probably’’ become an annual event, as it ran smoothly over the weekend.

Leading Senior Constable Daryl Eyre said police were ‘‘pretty happy’’ with the well-behaved crowds.
Lead Sen Const Eyre said a 20-year-old local man had been interviewed after another man, from Bendigo and known to the man, suffered a broken nose at the event.

‘‘I think the highway patrol checked a few vehicles for roadworthiness and took preliminary breath tests,’’ Lead Sen Const Eyre said.
‘‘To my knowledge no-one was caught drink driving.’’
