The inaugural Westholme Association Summer Ball took place at Shaw Hill Golf & Country Club. Visitors were treated on arrival to a champagne reception before sitting down to a lovely three course meal.
During the drinks reception, guests were offered the chance to buy a beautifully wrapped heart shaped trinket to enter the limited raffle. Prizes included a case of champagne, an overnight stay at a hotel in the Lake District, a TV and many more.
The tables looked stunning and it was down to the efforts of the Westholme Association committee members who had given up their Saturday afternoon to help prepare the room. A brochure and goody bags for the ladies were also placed on the tables and once the limited raffle had been drawn, it was time to enjoy the wonderful meal. Another raffle was held, this time to win prizes such as vouchers for local restaurants, vintage wine, champagne – the list went on. The winners of the 'sealed bid' secured top seats at this weekend's Take That concert – a top prize for sure!
Soon enough (and after a game of heads and tails, where the winner won a magnum of champagne) it was time to hit the dance floor. The DJ played a great set and successfully ensured that the guests danced the night away. People chatted, laughed and had an extremely enjoyable evening.
All too soon, the night drew to a close. It was a fantastic evening and one to remember. Thanks to the generosity of everyone, and the superb efforts of the members of the Association, an amazing £8056.79 was raised.
Well done to the Association on hosting a truly wonderful Westholme Ball.
