The Mayor’s Charity Ball held at Bishop Auckland Town Hall on Friday 22nd February proved to be a successful evening.
Guests enjoyed the glitz and glamour of the event, including a three-course meal, dancing and musical entertainment by Soul Band, The Smokin’ Spitfires.
Including pledges made on the evening, around £1,400 was raised in aid of the Mayor’s chosen charity, Woodhouse Close Community Food Bank.
Various fundraising activities were held throughout the evening, including a raffle, a game of Heads & Tails and a round of pitch-and-toss, all contributing to the total raised. Many generous donations were made by local businesses.
Councillor Fleming said:
“What a fantastic evening and I am utterly overwhelmed by the generosity of everyone who attended.”
“There are so many people I would like to thank that made the Ball such a success, firstly I would like to thank Barclays Bank for match funding the event, to each of the individuals and local businesses in the town who donated raffle prizes, to each of the staff at the Town Hall for all of their hard work and to everyone who came along on the evening.”
“Without their generosity and support, this amount would not have been possible.”
Tickets are now on sale for the Mayor’s Irish Night which will take place at The Park Head, Saturday 17th March 2018. For details contact the council on 01388 609852 or e mail email@example.com.
