    FUN NIGHT OUT: East Grampians Health Service’s Women, Wisdom and Wellbeing Dinner will return this year for the 17th gathering.

Wellbeing dinner returns

A girls’ night out event in Ararat will help brush off the winter chills and raise money for better health services.

East Grampians Health Service’s ‘Women, Wisdom and Wellbeing Dinner’ returns after a year’s absence, on August 23 at Ararat Town Hall.

The event, themed ‘Girls Just Wanna Have Fun’, will raise money to support the purchase of a patient-monitoring system for the service’s urgent care centre resuscitation bay.

Service community-liaison officer Jodie Holwell said the system would enable movement of patients from the centre to other health-service areas while still being monitored.

“This equipment will be a crucial addition to the urgent care centre,” she said.

Auxiliary president Viv Burridge said the dinner, which regularly attracts close to 300 women of different ages and cultures, also helps women form new relationships.

“The aim of the Women, Wisdom and Wellbeing Dinner is to promote health and wellbeing for women of all ages, stages and cultures through health promotion,” she said.

“It offers an opportunity for rural women, many of whom might be isolated, to network and meet new friends, raise vital funds for East Grampians Health Service to help deliver a better service to the community, and allows women to share wisdom and ideas.”

People interested in getting a table together for the event can email Jodie Holwell at for an invitation and booking details.

Tickets are $90, with early-bird tickets $85, including a meal, drinks and entertainment by Ararat duo SOFT.
