In the last 10 years, the Murray to Moyne cyclists have raised more than $100,000 for Deniliquin Hospital from its annual fundraiser.
And at Friday night’s mystery movie night, they added more than $6200 to this year’s efforts.
The open air movie night and auction was held at the Wakool Rd home of Rick and Lyn Bond, where the comedic Will Ferrell movie Blades Of Glory had everyone entertained.
As is tradition, the movie was kept a secret up until the showing, but props scattered around the garden were left as hints.
Each movie goer was invited to guess the name of the movie, with a name drawn at the end of the night for a lucky door prize. It was won by Shaun Connor.
An athlete podium with medals was the main prop, but when some of the organisers came dressed as ice skaters in lycra suits with gold medals guessing the movie became much easier.
Some of the guests also came in costume, which is also tradition for the annual movie night.
The funds raised on the night came from movie entry and a highly competitive goods and services auction.
Mr Bond said it was a great night, which attracted about 100 people.
Murray to Moyne is a cycling race, and Deniliquin cyclists use it as a chance to raise money for Deniliquin Hospital.
Following last year’s race in April, the local crew rode 520km from Swan Hill to Port Fairy and raised $12,000.
This year’s Murray to Moyne takes place on April 6 and 7.
There are three ride options to choose from, with the longest being a day and night ride from Mildura to Port Fairy (520km).
