A FUNDRAISING ball is helping women get into business in Northam for its second consecutive year.
The annual event held by Northam Women in Business helps raise a $5000 scholarship available to local women to fund their own business.
Northam Women in Business president Joanne Hill said the not-for-profit organization aimed to support and nurture local business and women business owners.
“We recognise that women in business in Northam, have their own unique set of challenges and we look at ways to overcome them,” she said.
“The 2017 Grand Ball under the Stars was hugely successful raising more than $5000 for the Northam Women in Business scholarship which was awarded to a very worthy recipient in October.
“Our volunteer team of event organisers are dedicated and committed to achieving a wonderful event for Northam while raising funds for a worthy cause.”
The group has more than 60 members and meet on the third Wednesday of every month.
Applications for the 2018 scholarship will open after the ball.
