Here's your chance to kick up your heels, support a good cause and get up close and personal with some cute native animals.

The Australian Wildlife Society (AWS) will host its annual gala ball at Wests League Club on Saturday, July 27.

The national animal welfare charity, based in Narellan, supports research and conservation projects in an effort to protect Australian native flora and fauna.

AWS's national office manger Megan Fabian said the event would be plenty of fun for people of all ages.

"There will be a three-course meal, live entertainment, music, a raffle, trivia, a silent auction and a chance to meet some native wildlife," she said.

"We will have a wombat, koala and some cute dingo pups.


"We want people to engage with and learn about the animals on the night - you might even form a bond with them.


"We hope people will be inspired to take action and support our native wildlife."

The gala ball is also a chance for the organisation to celebrate its 110th anniversary.

Funds raised at this year's event will support research into water conservation.

"Water plays an important role in the functioning of our eco-system," Ms Fabian said.

"The health of our waterways not only affects our wildlife, but it affects us as well.

"We need to protect our waterways in order to create a sustainable future for our wildlife."

Ms Fabian urged people to come along and enjoy a fun night out.

"It's a chance for like-minded people to come together and support a great cause," she said.

"Bring some friends or family along and make it a night to remember."

Tickets are $85 per adult or $30 per child.

Tickets must be booked by July 12.
