I decided that I would try to use social networking to my advantage, hence my first post about the ball.
Since this post I have received calls from:
- a photographer who will come along on the evening free of charge, sell photos and donate 10% of the profits to the charities concerned.
- an auction expert, he will supply auction items and organise a silent auction free of charge. Any profit made above the cost of the item will go directly to the charities
This will all be a great help. The companies can come in and professionally "do their thing". I will then have more time to see to the other aspect of the evening.
It's all getting very exciting! We're even looking at lighting the outside of Wynyard Hall. It is after all, a spectacular building.
