A POPULAR charity ball which raises vital funds for various voluntary groups across Coventry and Warwickshire is returning this year at Coombe Abbey hotel.
Hosted by law firm Band Hatton Button, the 2016 charity ball is being organised in support of the Heart of England Community Foundation – a charity which offers grants to support community projects across the West Midlands.
Taking place on Friday September 23, this year’s ball is hoping to eclipse the efforts from two years ago when more than 200 business people helped raise over £9,000.
Mark Moseley, managing director at Band Hatton Button, said the aim of this year’s event is to match the great results that were achieved two years ago.
He added: “Heart of England Community Foundation ensures that donations remain in the heart of local communities.
“We want to support projects and causes that need it the most, so it was a no brainer to host another charity ball.
“The evening provides the ideal opportunity for business people to network in a relaxing environment with a three course meal and live music, while also taking part in a variety of competitions and raffle prizes to raise money for a great cause.”
With just months to go until the ball, organisers are still looking to sell more tables, attract sponsors and prizes for a raffle.
Tina Costello, CEO at the Heart of England Community Foundation, said: “We are extremely grateful to Band Hatton Button and the wider business community for their continued support.
“The money from the last charity ball helped to sustain the Heart of England Community Foundation’s presence in the community. “The money raised allowed us to share funds amongst a wide range of voluntary groups – ranging from local sports clubs for youngsters, to carer support services, community cafes and much more.”
