With a little over 3 weeks to go, we hope that you are all super excited about our upcoming Centenary Ball!
The Ball Committee have been actively working hard to ensure all is ready for our big event and in the meantime we wanted to update you on what to expect in the coming weeks.
In the week following the half-term break (w/c 25th Feb), we will distribute the tickets to all table hosts, so please do look out for further news on this. I will also send out a final email to confirm all table names and dietary requirements.
We also cannot wait to share with you our auction prizes!! We have some amazing prizes from the much sought after ‘be Mrs Buck’ for the day, or ‘be Mr Morrison’s Assistant’, to stunning holiday homes, VIP ‘must see’ music events, unique one-off pieces of artwork, sporting memorabilia, a private chef…to name but a few!
A reminder that the funds raised on the night will not only go towards enhancing all our boys’ school experiences, but 30% of proceeds will go to the cardiac wing of Great Ormond Street Hospital, to help children who aren’t as fortunate as our boys, so please do dig deep and be as generous as you possibly can!!
Not able to come to the Ball? Fear not! For the first time ever, we will be having an online silent auction, which will go live w/c 25th Feb and will stay live for bids right up until the event itself! So all parents will have the opportunity to bid for prizes, even during the event (even if they’re not attending). Some select prizes will be live only on the night. Please look out for further information on this after half-term.
We look forward to welcoming you to our Centenary Ball on the 9th March. We are sure everyone will have an amazing night of wining, dining and dancing!
Do let us know if you have any questions.
Have a great half-term holiday and thank you for your endless support!
