With guests this year travelling from as far as France, Leicester and Liverpool to attend the evening, the event was able to raise more than £7,500 for children and young people with cancer.
The event began with bucks fizz followed by a fantastic four course meal and auction. Guests were then able to enjoy the music of the Mike Collins Disco.
Hannah Eustice from the CLIC Sargent Cornwall Voluntary Fundraising Group said: “We had fantastic support again from local businesses. The auction was exciting and we had wonderful prizes including beautiful pictures from local artists; Clare Parker, Dick Twinney, Emily Pryor, Lorna Wiles, Melanie McDonald, Sheila Beckett and Paul Foreman, rounds of golf, beauty treatments, a signed framed Jason Leonard rugby shirt, a huge sheepskin rug from Celtic Sheepskin Co, pottery from Georgina Cominos, a range of Cornish holidays and many other items. Auctioneers Brian, Jonathon and Bradley Start of ‘Start & Co’ kept the guests on their toes with quick and often witty sales techniques.”
Stephanie Cherington-Rimmell, CLIC Sargent fundraising manager for Cornwall said: “It is wonderful that this annual event continues to be widely supported and such a success. I would like to thank all those who helped organize the event and raise such a wonderful amount for CLIC Sargent.”
