August 28th 2018. York, UK. Global telecommunications provider Cellhire is once again proud to support The Sunflower Ball, in aid of St Leonard’s Hospice, as a charity event to raise money for patient care. Cellhire has supported The Sunflower Ball for a number of years and this year is no different; as the main sponsor of the event, Cellhire has made a significant donation towards the Ball’s goal of the £45,000 needed to help cover day-to-day running costs at the Hospice.
About The Sunflower Ball
It promises to be a night of fantastic entertainment, hosted at York Racecourse on Saturday 22nd September and is themed ‘A Night at the Oscars’. The evening will include a red carpet entrance with a champagne reception, and a four course meal successively ending with a Grand Prize Draw with the chance to win one of 5 weekend breaks, ensuring revellers will be entertained up until the 2am close.
The Sunflower Ball, held every two years, hopes to be a significant driver in helping St Leonard’s Hospice raise the money needed to aid patients. The Hospice celebrated its 30th year in 2016 and provides care to people with life threatening diseases. Although free of charge to both patients and their families, the care is not free to provide, and as a charity, the Hospice relies heavily on the generosity of the public to help raise just over £5 million it costs to run St Leonard’s Hospice every year. While St Leonard’s does get some public funding, the majority of running costs have to be raised from donations and fundraising by the local community, businesses and individuals; The Sunflower Ball is just one example of a significant fundraiser.
The Ball is inclusive to groups and individuals alike, offering both tables of 10 and individual tickets. To enquire about the different tickets or to make a booking, please call the St Leonard’s Fundraising Team on 01904 777 777.
