Beresfords Charity Gala Dinner
Fundraising for the Essex Air Ambulance
On Friday, October 12, Beresfords will be hosting its third annual charity gala ball to raise money for the Essex & Herts Air Ambulance. After a hugely successful inaugural event in 2016, which raised £14,500, the night has become one to look forward to year on year. Last year interest was even greater, and after moving to the larger venue of Braxted Park, the ball raised more than £31,500, thanks largely to the generosity of more than 250 guests and event sponsors such as The Blue Group.
For 2018, guests will once again be treated to a gala dinner and a charity auction, this year hosted by Martin Bell. The 2018 event will coincide with Beresfords celebrating 50 years of business and is set to be the biggest yet. 300 tickets were initially made available and just a few still remain. The team behind the event is hoping to raise even more money than ever, with headline sponsors Bentley Lamborghini and Nicholas Anthony adding to the event, and style partner Finique London styling many of the attendees.
Guests will have the chance to bid on an array of auction lots including luxury holidays in Barbados and South Africa as well as weekend breaks in Devon
and the Cotswolds. There will also be superb raffle prizes to be won on the night, with guests in with the chance of winning a three-course bottomless Prosecco lunch, afternoon tea and spa treatments, to name but a few.
‘Our annual gala ball has grown year on year and become bigger than we could have imagined,’ said CEO Paul Beresford. ‘It’s quite something when you think that we only launched it two years ago. In the previous years we have been extremely humbled by the number of people willing to get behind this great cause, enabling us to raise over £45,500 for the Essex and Herts Air Ambulance since 2016. This year, with the backing of loyal supporters and our amazing sponsors, we have even more people on board, so we are hoping to raise an even larger sum.’
