On Saturday 23 November, Worthing-based charity, Care for Veterans, held its fourth annual Glitter Ball at Fontwell Park Racecourse and raised over £10,000, smashing last year’s total.
The 125 guests were welcomed with a drinks reception and were wowed by close-up magician, Harvey Woods. Then it was onto a delicious three course dinner, before everyone got on the dancefloor to dance the night away to fantastic local band, The Alternatives.
Other fun games during the evening included Play Your Cards Right and there were opportunities to win prizes in the charity’s raffle.
Auctioneer, Philip Belcher, from Bellmans, coordinated the charity auction, which included Lots such as dinner at the ‘First Dates’ restaurant, a luxury hotel stay and a private beer tasting.
Care for Veterans’ Senior Fundraiser, Christine Gillott said, “I’d like to thank all of the guests who came and helped us raise such a fantastic amount of money for our veterans. To all of our volunteers and everyone who made the ball possible, we’re so grateful for your support! All of the money raised this evening will go towards the care and rehabilitation of our disabled veterans, many of whom are facing the toughest battle of their lives.”
