ELEGANCE, style and sophistication will feature highly at this year’s Zoe’s Place Ball which is set to take place at Coventry’s prestigious Coombe Abbey Hotel in May.
It will be the second year that the Zoe’s Place Business Group has organised this spectacular event which last year raised more than £60,000 for the hospice and they are hoping to smash through that target with this year’s event.
Celebrities are also lining up to attend with Coventry soul singer and star of The Voice, Letitia George and UB40 founder member and saxophonist Brian Travers and a huge supporter of the hospice are already confirmed as guests at the Ball.
The Zoë’s Place Patron Lady Daventry and her husband Lord Daventry will also be in attendance.
Every penny raised on the night will go to Zoë’s Place annual running costs of £1.3 million per year.
Peter Jarvis, Managing Director of Warwick based Contechs is Chairman of the Zoë’s Place Business Group – a group of business and community leaders from across Coventry and Warwickshire who joined forces early last year to help swell the coffers of the charity to help keep its doors open 24/7.
He said: “Our aim as a business group is to establish this ball as the premier event in Coventry and Warwickshire’s social calendar – all in aid of this fantastic cause Zoë’s Place.
“Although last year was only the first year we had some fantastic support from everyone who attended. We exceeded our own expectations and everyone there helped make the event a real success.
“Zoë’s Place provides a real lifeline to the children and their families and it is vital that this service continues. Events such as the ball give everyone a great opportunity to find out more about this fantastic facility and to learn how they can get involved, but also have fun at the same time.”
Headline sponsor of the event is Arden Foods who have been long term supporters of Zoe’s Place.
Gary Barr , Managing Director – Arden Fine Foods commented: “It’s always a fantastic night and the money it raises contributes to enabling the team to continue the indispensable work that they do, providing vital respite and palliative care for young terminally ill children and their families.
“We’re privileged that Zoe’s Place is part of our community and the Arden’s team is honoured to be part of their community, helping them raise awareness and essential funding to ensure they can support many more families.”
Muna Chauhan, Corporate Fundraising Manager at the hospice added: “Members of the Business Group went above and beyond last year to ensure their first event was a major success.
“Many attendees have already snapped up their tables for this year’s event and already it is shaping up to be even bigger and better than before.”
The black tie event takes place on Friday, May 19th. Individual tickets for the event are priced at £55.
There are also Gold, Platinum and Diamond packages available for tables of 10 at £550, £950 and £1,500. Sponsorship packages are also available at £2,000 or £3,000 for main sponsors.
