Burlesque Ball held at The Marriott Hotel
Supporters of LOROS, the Leicestershire and Rutland Hospice, adorned their feather bowers and basques and made their way to The Marriott Hotel for an evening of cabaret, cocktails and dancing in November 2011.
The event was enjoyed by everyone as Ann Oliver Dance School performed burlesque routines and Romany the Diva of Magic, who recently starred on Penn and Teller, was our MC and in house magician. We even had ex England Rugby Player, Harry Ellis and friends, dressed as an American cocktail bartenders shaking up all types of concoctions.
The Event made over £25,000 for LOROS which will go towards patient care and was kindly sponsored by Next and over 200 guests attended. Companies such as Bentons Estate Agents, Alpen Signs, Mattioli Woods and RBS made up the tables to name just a few.
Alexandra Gamble, Corporate Fundraiser at LOROS said “the event was a great success and I am happy so much money was raised for LOROS and that’s down to the guests being very generous in the auction and raffle”.
Next year’s ball is set to be bigger and better and it is already in the diary for 17th November 2012 at the Marriott Hotel. To join in the event please contact Alexandra Gamble, Corporate Fundraiser for LOROS on 0116 2318431
