Autumn Ball – November, 2016
Style Acre’s Autumn Ball at Milton Hill House was a wonderful evening and a successful fundraising event. Our third Ball at the hotel – which continues to support us, not only by hosting this fun and relaxed evening, but by providing work experience for people we support – began with a Prosecco reception, followed by a 3 course dinner with wine and coffee.
Henry Lay, who we support and who has had work experience at the hotel, provided hilarious stand-up comedy. Grace, who we support at our Didcot hub, sang ‘I’m so Excited’ to our 120 guests and Dom was our talented photographer. A lively casino ensued and dancing until 1.00am.
Our fantastic auction – which included donated holiday home weeks in Florida, Edinburgh and France – helped us raise over £25,000.
We are grateful to Henry, Grace, Dom, General Manager Gavin and his super staff at Milton Hill House, auctioneer Josephine, our flower arranging group who made the wonderful table displays, our lovely guests and everyone who supported us with auction and raffle prizes.
