Join the Glitz at Dorset Blind Association’s Masquerade Ball

Join the Glitz and Glamour at Dorset Blind Association’s 3rd Masquerade Ball.

Dorset Blind Association, a charity providing services, support and advice to blind and partially sighted people in Dorset, will host their annual Masquerade Ball this October. The event will take place on Saturday 28th October at the new venue of The Hilton Hotel, Bournemouth, with over 120 attendees expected at this prestigious event.

The charity's Annual Ball returns for it’s third year and invites local supporters and visually impaired members to join the evening's celebrations and indulge in the glitz and glamour of this black tie event.

Guests will be welcomed by a glass of fizz and then be treated to a sumptuous 3 course meal accompanied with wine, plus fabulous entertainment from the local favourites ‘Swing Unlimited Big Band’, who will definitely get you up, dancing the night away. To add to this high-end evening guests will also be able to try their luck at the Viva Las Vegas casino and raffle.

This great event is once again to be sponsored by local Dorset company, Blue Sky Financial Planning. Gary Neild, Managing Director, has been a long-standing supporter of Dorset Blind Association.

Gary Neild says, “Dorset Blind Association is our chosen charity because of the difference they make to people’s lives. The charity shares our values and ethos. The Masquerade Ball is an excellent opportunity for all of us at Blue Sky to dress up, have a good time and at the same time raise money and awareness for those in need.’

The charities 3rd Masquerade Ball will be held at The Hilton Hotel, Bournemouth, BH2 5EL. Tickets are £55.00 per person or £500.00 for a table of 10.

Helena Sinclair, Fundraiser at Dorset Blind Association said, “ As the most prestigious and high-end event within our fundraising calendar, the funds that are raised from the evening really do have a significant impact to the services our charity offers. The support we have received for our Ball has increased incredibly over the last 3 years and we are excited to offer a new venue and new entertainment this year!"

Dorset Blind Association receive no statutory funding, despite the importance of their work and therefore rely on the kind support of local people to help keep their vital services going. The value of the charity’s work was recognised earlier this year by it being selected to receive The Queen’s Award for Voluntary Service 2017.
