The club hosts an annual fundraising Black Tie Ball every year. In 2010 it was held at the Lae International Hotel on Saturday August 7 and has been decided that funds raised from the ball will go towards purchasing the equipment needed by police for their work. Club Past president Chris Wakelin said: “This event is a fantastic way of treating customers, staff, or just yourselves and friends to a fabulous night out. Entertainment is by the well known Tumbuna Track Studio Band and your meals, beer, wine and soft drinks are included.” Mr Wakelin said proceeds from this Black Tie Ball will go towards community projects including police tactical equipment, water filtration systems and educational support.
