Friday night’s Girls’ Night Out Midnight in Milan event raised almost $20,000 for Echuca Regional Health’s oncology department supportive care program.
About 450 women attended the red carpet hair and fashion show held at Moama Bowling Club.
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.
