IF your calendar is looking a bit empty over the winter months, jot in the Ray White charity ball.
The second ball will return to Emmanuel College on Saturday, July 13 and will support Standing Tall.
This year the theme is Alice in Wonderland.
Standing Tall's Ross Morey said he was pleased Ray White had selected the mentoring program as the charity partner this year.

The initiative pairs up students who may not be reaching their full potential with community leaders as their mentors. They meet regularly for coaching sessions.
"It really shows great community support," Mr Morey said.
"We have 83 students across four schools. We are 100 per cent self-funded so having this opportunity is fantastic."
Ray White staff member and organiser Hayley Shannon said last year's ball had exceeded expectations with more than 270 tickets sold.
It raised $24,000 for The Lookout.
"We are hoping to sell 400 tickets this year," she said.
Tickets are available by visiting trybooking.com and searching for the Ray White charity ball 2019.
Tickets cost $175 and include dinner and all drinks.
