At the beginning of March, I was part of a truly wonderful evening to celebrate the 10th Anniversary of Promise Dreams with an anniversary dinner that was second to none.
A fabulous night was had by all at Dunstall Racecourse on the 5th March 2011. With the launch of our tenth year – the Promise Dreams Team and over 400 kind people joined together to have a superb evening to raise monies for Promise Dreams.
The evening got off to a thunderous start with Trevor T and his gorgeous show girls treating the room to a spectacular show including fire throwers and stilt walking and getting all the guests doing the conga around the tables - and that was all before the starters were served!!
The evening festivities continued with a beautifully presented 4 course dinner and then onto the other festivities.
I was honoured to host the event along with Steve Bull and it was a delight to introduce Beverley Knight onto the stage. She entertained the crowd with an acoustic set with songs from the past and present and it was lovely to have her stay for the whole evening with her lovely mum. To have one soul diva was amazing but then 80’s legend, Jaki Graham took to the stage and rocked the crowd – many of the guests joined her on stage!
A DVD showing all of our guests what the charity was about was delivered in total silence and I believe that bidding on the Auction items was inspired by the footage shown because a quick-fire round of bidding ensued raising a record breaking amount of money for the Charity – thank you so much everyone for your wonderful support
Dancing until 2am finished off what can only be described as a superbly successful evening – and one that we hope will set the tone for the fundraising from now forward….
