Make-A-Wish® UK Valentines Ball
February 15 @ 7:00 pm - February 16 @ 1:00 am
Make-A-Wish® UK invites you to their annual Valentine’s Ball taking place at The Royal Lancaster Hotel, London on Saturday 15th February. The charity is delighted to announce that popstar Nadine Coyle will be headlining the event performing her long-awaited new music being released later this month along with the much-loved classics. This glorious extravaganza promises an evening of exclusive entertainment, amazing food, and fundraising opportunities for a great cause.
“I am delighted to be part of the Make-A-Wish UK Valentine’s Ball on 15 January. I hope to see you there to celebrate the wonderful things that Make-A-Wish does for children and their families.” Nadine Coyle
Tickets for this incredible event cost £300 each or £3,000 for a table of 10, with all proceeds going to Make-A-Wish and the wonderful children and families they support.
The Valentine’s Ball will welcome over 300 guests, who will experience a glamorous and truly unique evening. Guests will be treated to a champagne reception, a three-course dinner and fine wines, and lively entertainment throughout the evening.
The Ball will be hosted by popular presenter and journalist Lauren Layfield, as well as presenter and magician, Archie Manners. This sensational evening will be opened with a fun-filled, energetic performance from West End Kids, singing hits from the popular show Waitress.
There is the much anticipated main and silent auctions, with bespoke ‘money can’t buy prizes’, along with a truly powerful moment of the evening, where children’s One True Wishes can be sponsored. This year’s Auctioneer will be the wonderful BBC Flog It’s Thomas Forrester.
The evening will culminate in an amazing performance from Nadine, followed by an upbeat house band to get guests dancing the night away.
The Valentine’s Ball is an important part of the charity’s fundraising efforts and has been running for over 15 years. Last year’s event, formerly known as the Spring Ball, raised over £300,000, and the charity is hoping to exceed it for 2020. This amount helps Make-A-Wish to grant more than 65 children’s magical wishes.
Between September 2018 and August 2019, the charity granted a record number of magical wishes in one year, reaching over 1,100 children. However, every month, hundreds more children turn to them and their goal is to reach every child that needs a wish.
A child’s wish is totally unique and magical for them. Whether it’s starring in their own films, walking with dinosaurs, going on their first family holiday, meeting a celebrity hero, or having a bedroom makeover; wishes are varied, personal and life changing. Make-A-Wish aims to always go above and beyond the children’s imagination in to granting their extraordinary wishes to very amazing children. Crucial funds raised at the Ball will go towards granting wishes such as Skye’s, who wished to go to Milan Fashion Week.
Tickets are now available to purchase, with full information on how to book on the charity’s website. Make-A-Wish looks forward to welcoming you to the Valentine’s Ball, and thanks you for your support.
