This year’s Hollywood Glamour Ball has been our most successful ball to date, raising a whopping £16,358.99 with funds still coming in! We are all over the moon with this wonderful figure and want to thank everyone who supported this event, helping to make it an incredible success.  
 
The evening took place at the stunning Principal Hotel in York on Saturday 21 October and really was a night filled with delicious food, fabulous entertainment and wonderful prizes to be won. Everyone left the venue at the end of the night with a huge smile on their face.


An extra special thank you goes out to our amazing Ball Committee – Christine Osmond, Lesley Shearman, Charlotte Walker, Hilary Marton, Tom Marton, Sharon Walsh and Jordanna Kelly, who worked tirelessly to organise the evening. It has been an absolute pleasure working with you on this event.
 
Christine Osmond, the Ball Committee Chair said ‘The committee came together 10 months ago, having never met each other but we all had one thing in common, having lost a loved one through a brain tumour. Our passion was to raise as much money as we could for this amazing underfunded charity.  Over the months we worked together as a team.  We collated raffle prizes, brilliant auction prizes, ensuring we could make this a successful night, and it was.  We are all so proud of what we have achieved, never expecting to raise as much money as we did.  We are all so passionate about this charity and we will continue funding the fight in the hope that one day we will find a cure for this dreadful disease.’
Additional thank you’s go to our compares Tom Marton and Tina Boden, you did an amazing job. It just wouldn’t be the same without you. Rais Hasan our wonderful award-winning photographer. Peter Riggs for documenting the evening. Ellie Klouda for her brilliant acoustic set. The Undercover Waiters for having us all in hysterics. Treasured Occasions for styling the event. And finally, to Adam Thomas for making a surprise appearance!

Long standing supporter and guest at the ball, Wendy Maynard-Light said "I would like to thank the organising committee for a well run, entertaining and enjoyable Ball.  Susie, Rachael, Janine and I had the most wonderful evening.  Everything was just perfect, the venue, the atmosphere, the food and the entertainment.  Well, what can one say about the "Undercover Waiters"! What an absolutely fantastic idea to have these guys. Totally taken in by their banter when serving food and Mario's antics during the 'opening number' was so funny, it was pure genius. We are so pleased and honoured to have been part of this fundraising event.  So much so, that our two friends have asked me if we can 'do it again next year'.

 
The photograph’s are now up on our facebook page from the evening, there are some brilliant action shots, so do take a look if you get the chance.
 
It really was a wonderful night and we can't wait to start planning the next one. Watch this space!
