Committee member Leonie Canham described the atmosphere on the night as electric.

‘‘It was incredibly overwhelming for us as a committee to see the women of Echuca-Moama and district come out in such huge numbers to support our cause,’’ Mrs Canham said.

‘‘And to raise almost $20,000 in a single night is testament to what the power of women can achieve.’’

Mrs Canham said since holding the first GNO event five years ago, it had taken on a life of its own.

‘‘Since 2008, Girls’ Night Out has raised an amazing $134,000, and our partners in crime the Boys’ Night Out have raised a further $32,000,’’ she said.
