Black tie ball for town charity
PUBLISHED: 17:00 28 June 2014
A NIGHT of black-tie glamour and top entertainment is being held to celebrate the 25th birthday of one of the town’s most loved charities.
Weston Hospicecare is holding a big birthday bash in September to help raise vital funds.
As well as tucking into a luxury three-course meal, people will have the chance to dine with best-selling author Jeffrey Archer.
The dinner will raise money for the charity and as well as a speech from Lord Archer, guests will enjoy casino tables, live music and dancing.
Lord Archer has sold more than 250 million books in 97 countries and is the only author to ever have been a number one best-seller in fiction, short stories and non-fiction.
A select few will have the opportunity to meet him in person during a VIP champagne and canapé reception before other guests arrive.
A limited number of these tickets are available and to meet Lord Archer, pose for photos and receive a signed copy of one of his critically-acclaimed books.
Chief executive of Hospicecare Gill Auden said: “We’re so excited to have Jeffrey Archer coming along to join us at this event, it’s an honour that he has chosen to help us raise money and we are so looking forward to hearing him speak after dinner.
“There will be lots of events throughout the night to raise money for Weston Hospicecare in our 25th year.”
This extravagant evening with one of the country’s top writers will take place in the Regency Suite at the Grand Pier on September 20 at 7.30pm.
Tickets go on sale on July 1, with VIP tables for up to 10 people – including the champagne and canapé reception – priced £750.
