Housing Plus has announced support for its annual White Tie Ball is stronger than ever, with 16 new sponsors donating to the domestic violence crisis centre fundraiser.
Event organiser Rochelle Monaghan said backing for The Orchard is strong.
"We are proud to be delivering this much needed centre to Orange," she said.
"Housing Plus appreciates the generous support of individuals and businesses within the community who have kindly donated items for the fundraising activities on the night."
