The Young Tradespeople and Professionals (YTAP) have given men's mental health group I'm Not Afraid To Talk (INATT) a huge boost thanks to a record turnout at their latest Charity Ball.

A total of 140 people attended the ball in August, raising $7258 (another record) for INATT, which will go towards training for members and upcoming workshops.

The money was mainly raised through the silent and live auctions at the Charity Ball, which featured items donated by local businesses being auctioned off by auctioneer Dan Tucker.

Live entertainment at the ball was provided by young acoustic artist Brie Ryan and DJ Brooke, who got everyone on to the dance floor. The night featured a three course meal and plenty of fun for all involved.

President Kira Kennedy said everyone enjoyed their night at the ball.

"I didn't hear any negative feedback...there were a few members of the committee who had such a good time they couldn't make Sunday dinner," she said.

YTAP Committee Member Alex Wirth said INATT has a real vision that will benefit the community.

"We're very happy to be supporting their goals," she said.

INATT Committee Member Chris Mills thanked YTAP for selecting them as the beneficiaries of the Charity Ball and thanked all the businesses involved in the night.

"We have a workshop coming up in Whyalla and one in Port Lincoln so the money will go towards those and also providing important training for some of our members," he said.
