Organiser Nik Peran said he had seen both his wife and a friend undergo operations to repair detached retinas.

He was so overwhelmed with the support they received during the process, that he decided to pay it forward and throw a ball to fundraise for an organisation that helps many people with vision impairments.

Mr Peran said he was hoping to raise $6000.

�It�s a roaring �20s themed occasion with a band, big dance floor and other entertainment,� he said. �People are encouraged to dress up and the venue will be fully styled in the era.

�Anyone who can swing, dance ballroom or rock �n� roll will be thrilled and non dancers will be entertained with competitions, raffles and other activities.

�Visibility needs ongoing support to help the 40,000 West Australians who live with vision problems or blindness.

�By coming along, people are supporting a worthy cause and it�s a cause they may need themselves one day.�

The Great Gatsby Ball will be held on April 18 at the Spearwood Dalmatinac Club from 7.30pm to 12am.
