CASINO's annual Beef Week festival will kick off with the official opening ball at the Casino RSM Club tonight.

This will be a night to remember and one that has the potential to be life-changing for one young woman passionate about the local area.

The presentation and crowning of the 2017 Beef Week Queen will set the tone for the evening, which will be launched by special guests Casino mayor Robert Mustow and Northern Co-operative Meat Company chairman John Seccombe.

Vying for the Beef Week crown this year are Ashleigh Little, Chelsea Ditrich, Jenna Bailey, Tiarra Birkbeck and Zoe Griffiths.
