A SPORTSPERSONS' night featuring AFL champion Jonathan Brown will help send a Warrnambool aerobics team to the world titles.
Brown, former Olympic cyclist Michael Lynch and four-time world aerobics competitor Emma Bellman will speak at the event at the Whalers Hotel on Friday.
The event will raise money to send an EKB Fitness and Aerobics team to contest Federation of International Sport Aerobics and Fitness titles in the Netherlands. Bellman said the athletes had to fund-raise to offset the $4000 per competitor cost to compete overseas.
She said the team was about "halfway" to its goal of raising $12,000 ahead of the sportspersons' night.
"The parents are paying their own way over. If we can cover as much as possible for the girls, it does make it easier on the families," she said.
"Without sponsorship, the team wouldn't be going."
About 100 tickets remain for the sportspersons' night, which also includes a goods and services auction.
Tickets are available through the Whalers Hotel or by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
