Dravet Syndrome Charity Ball

We’re pleased another of our charity clients & supporters enjoyed their 1st annual conference & ball at the weekend – held at Warrington’s Park Royal Hotel (M56 J10).

Building up to the event, we worked closely with the organisers to bring together what we believe would fit perfectly for the charity’s first annual ball and we’re very happy our knowledge and experience paid off once again.

To keep the entertainment appealing, simple and within budget, we provided a couple of casino tables (Roulette & Black Jack), disco & Compere/MC Pete Pinnington who also facilitated the whole evening. The fundraising came through our ‘Hit & Miss’ game, silent auction and raffle. Many of the auction & raffle items included:-

  • Steven Gerrard signed & framed England Football Shirt.
  • Michael Owen signed football shirt.
  • Rugby Ball signed by Wigan’s Sam Tomkns.
  • Framed One-Day England Test Cricket Shirt signed by the team.
  • 2 Matchday tickets for Warrington Wolves.
  • 2 Concert Tickets and Meet & Greet Tickets for Olly Murrs LIVE in Manchester. (March 2013).
  • Ladies Bicycle.
  • Children’s ride-on John Deere Tractor & Trailor.

The charity’s latest Patron – MBE & British Athlete Phillips Idowu also attended and supported the evening. Phillips is the European Outdoor & Indoor & Commonwealth Triple Jump Champion, Silver Medallist at the 2008 Summer Olympics & Gold Medallist at the 2009 World Athletics Championship!

Our entertaining disco certainly had no trouble encouraging the guests to do the ‘Gangnam Style’ dance…
