The eagerly anticipated ‘Emily’s Ball 2020’ will be held at York Racecourse on Saturday February 1st 2018. We are keen to keep the ball as close to Emily’s birthday as possible (January 30th). Circa 220 guests attended in 2016, circa 250 in 2018 and we are expecting many more this time around.
Guests will once again enjoy a welcome drink, quality three course meal, live and silent auctions and top class entertainment in a great venue.
As in previous years, the objective of the ball is to have fun but also to raise as much money as possible for Martin House Children’s Hospice (Registered Charity Number: 517919) who helped look after Emily during her last few days and have provided us with ongoing support ever since.
The vast majority of the money raised on the night will be via the live auction. We will once again be calling in every favour and contacting every company, sports club and celebrity on the planet for prizes and we hope what we source ourselves will be significant but if you are reading this and you are able to or are interested in sponsoring the evening or donating a prize please let us know via our Contact page.
Martin House is more than happy to verify the event and this can be done by contacting the Fundraising Team (led by the Fundraising Manager Jodie Shepherd) on 01937 844569. We also have a Martin House official letter of support which we can present on request.
We will update this page with further details as and when we have them.
