​Esperance Police hosted the WA Police Legacy Ball at the Esperance Bay Turf Club, raising around $15,000 for the Legacy organisation.

The Glamour and Glitz Ball saw 327 people attend the event, hosted by Monique Dirksz as MC.

WA Police Legacy supports families who have lost a loved one who was a police officer with education fees, driving lessons, lap top computers, Legacy camps, and many more things.

The event was a huge success, with the evening’s major auction prize of a Surfboard signed by the Margaret River Pro contestants going for $5000. The surf board was donated by Surfing WA along with a generous monetary donation from the WA Police Union.

Esperance Police Station senior sergeant Richard Moore said feedback from the night had been wonderful and hoped another Ball would be held in the future.

“I want to thank the magnificent community, business owners and the organisations who kindly sponsored the Ball and provided assistance to help set up the event,” he said.
