Charity Disco Essex – Dinner and Dance
Last Friday we had the pleasure of providing the evenings entertainment for a Dinner & Dance held at the Essex County Cricket Ground in aid to raise money for Macmillan. This particular gig meant a lot to us personally as not only was the event raising money for such a great cause but the whole event was organised from an old school friend. David Gains has dedicated the past two years to putting on fundraisers and charity events to raise money and awareness for Macmillan Cancer Support. So far to date he has raised over £50,000! This is such an amazing achievement. A lot of David’s fundraising and charity work is focussed around his passion for Cricket. The aim of last Fridays charity event was to put on a Charity Dinner and Dance evening that anyone could get involved with. The night started with drinks then onto a formal dinner. Once everyone was fed David’s close friend delivered David’s touching speech to the whole room. It was time for the charity auction. David had arranged lots of amazing things that where all up for grabs at the auction. This included signed England cricket shirts and merchandice, as well as Essex Signed Shirts and merchandise. Signed football boots and many other great items. The most interesting item was from a close friend of David’s who auctioned off the chance to shave and wax his head and beard, needless to say this was very popular within the auction. After the auction there was a raffle with lots of great prizes won. It was now time for us to get people up and dancing to dance the rest of their evening away. We had a great night entertaining some wonderful people and look forward to working with David at other fundraising events.
