IT WILL be a mystery who is at a gala ball in August raising money for Club Lennox - even after the guests have arrived.

The fundraising event is a masquerade ball organised by Lennox Head woman Tracey Everingham.

The ball, billed A Night of Elegance, will be held at the Ballina RSL Club on August 10 from 6pm.

Tickets went on sale this week with the target of opening Club Lennox as a function centre.

Tracey said the ball would be a "really cool night for young and young-at-heart".

"Club Lennox will be a really important thing for the Lennox community - it will be for everyone," she said.

She said the ball was going to be held in Ballina as, without the bowling club, Lennox Head didn't have another large function centre of its type.

The Lennox Head bowling club has been closed since late last year, with Sydney-based Ramsgate Group citing financial difficulties for the closure.

More than $180,000 is needed to the get the club open again.

Ball tickets cost $120 each. That includes a three-course dinner and entertainment by the Cath Sines Band, and a special appearance by comedian Mandy Nolan.

Tickets are available at Le Chelle Boutique, Lennox Head, or by phoning Tracey on 0401 070 602. Only cash or cheques can be used to purchase tickets.

Ticket sales close July 31.
