The theme may be The Land of Make Believe, but Youth Solutions' 2019 Annual Charity Event will play a very real role in helping to make a difference in the lives of young people.

The Macarthur drug and alcohol prevention charity will bring a touch of magic to The Cube at Campbelltown Catholic Club on Saturday, July 27.

Youth Solutions chief executive Geraldine Dean said the charity was blown away by the early support the event had received and encouraged the community to get behind the fun and fundraising.

"The charity event is our major annual fundraiser, helping our charity to raise the funds needed to support the vital programs and services we provide for young people in our community," Mrs Dean said

"This year we are inviting people to pull on some fairy wings, don a pirate hat or let their imagination run wild as they join us in The Land of Make Believe.

"We are inviting people to be part of the magic, and for Youth Solutions, that means contributing to supporting some of the most vulnerable people in our community."

This year's event will be hosted by C91.3's Josh Webster with plenty of opportunity to hit the dance floor, enjoy some quality entertainment, fundraising activities and prizes, including awards for best-dressed.

Ms Dean said she was grateful for the generous Macarthur community.

"It truly takes a community to keep our young people healthy, safe and connected and on that note we must particularly thank our wonderful sponsors for their support," Mrs Dean said.

"A very special thank you must also go to our Youth Solutions fundraising committee, which works so hard to organise this event."

Whilst locking in the final numbers for the event, Mrs Dean said the charity was also hoping to secure some major prize donations in support of the event and thanked the businesses and individuals who have already pledged donations in support of the event.

"If you can't make it along to the event, there are still other ways you can get involved and show your support for our community's young people," she said.

"From donating a prize for the event, making a financial donation to Youth Solutions, or simply sharing our charity's important work with your friends and contacts, you too can help us to make a difference."
