Heritage Bank BRITE Ball
The 2021 Brite Ball was a huge success with sell-out ticket sales and an abundance of fun, diversity and inclusiveness. We welcomed drag queen performances from Quiche Loraine, Nova China, Rose Porterhouse and Poppy Coxx, and we had amazing support from the general and business community of Bundaberg.
