22 Jun Summer Ball at La Finca Golf and Spa Resort Hotel
It was the Summer Ball at La Finca Golf and Spa Resort Hotel in Algorfa and more than 100 people attended this now annual event for The Children’s Home in Elche.
It was surprise time for the guests with a cava reception kindly sponsored by Vincent Real Estate who took a whole table.
Meet and Greet was down to Golden Leaves and the guests gathered poolside to see mermaids and synchronised swimmers along with scuba divers take to the pool with ABBA music and songs by K’ABBA’M – an Abba tribute all the way from Albox!
The first call for dinner had everyone seated by 8.00p.m and Lady Toastmaster Patricia Creighton MBE introduced Dave Diggle, International Financial Adviser for Blacktower Financial Management and volunteer accountant for the charity, who welcomed everyone and thanked the other sponsors:- Vincent Real Estate; Golden Leaves; Quesada Computers; Media Promotions and Da Silva’s Restaurant.
all helped us to raise €1508 during the evening for the charity.
The tables looked splendid with centre arrangements in true twenties style provided by Christine Worthy of Mist in Quesada.
Patricia kept the evening running smoothly and to time and her partner Gerry Hemmet did an amazing job overseeing the raffle and the auction.
More surprises and a touch of magic as the ever popular magician Graeme Mykal visited each table and then there was popping as well as bopping as the raffle was done with playing cards in “Blacktower Blue” balloons.
Kayleigh and Melanie who are K’ABBA’M kept everyone entertained with their ABBA tribute performance.
Richie Sparks DJ and owner of BIG FM did a splendid job of not only auctioneer but of keeping everyone on their dancing feet! Barrington who will be at Winter Wonderland II in December was a guest at this event along with his wife Julie but he stepped in to do his version of Heads and Tails and demonstrated how to shake your tail feather!
There was one final surprise when Janice and Gareth Jones took to the floor to do The Charleston! It was spectacular and if you learn how to dance like this you will not need to go to the gym ever!
Many thanks go to Pablo Saura and his amazing staff who were as courteous and helpful as ever –special thanks to Franciso who stayed late in order to blow up over 100 balloons! La Finca Golf and Spa Resort Hotel is truly 5*.
Our thanks also go to the many restaurants and local businesses who donated meals and prizes for the raffle and auction. These very generous people listed on fb Susan Reader all helped us to raise €1508 during the evening for the charity.
