Past Balls

1st Emily’s Ball – 30th January 2016

We held the 1st Emily’s Ball’ at York Racecourse on 30th January 2016, on what would have been Emily’s first birthday. We raised over £12,000 for Martin House on the night and the night was a great success. The live auction was the centre piece of the night and raised a large proportion of the total raised. Example lots included Grand National Tickets, Leeds Rhinos Hospitality Package, Weekend in London and Harry Judd signed drumsticks!

The Jonny Ross Band provided a brilliant set and had the entire guest list dancing into the wee hours. Guests were also entertained by the brilliant magician Alfie Whattam; the Star of the TV Show ‘The Illusionist’, a ‘Britain’s Got Talent’ YT Finalist & the Best Selling Author of the Book ‘Learn 7 Easy Magic Tricks’.

2nd Emily’s Ball – 27th January 2018

We held ‘Emily’s Ball 2018’ at York Racecourse on 27th January 2018. We raised just over £14,500 for Martin House on the night and the night was a great success. The live auction was the centre piece of the night and raised a significant proportion of the total raised. Example lots included Steiff Collectable Teddy Bears, Six Nations tickets, a week on the North Norfolk Coast, a Yorkshire Cricket Hospitality Package and Jet2 flights!

The Jonny Ross Band once again provided a brilliant set and had the entire guest list dancing into the wee hours. Guests also enjoyed having their photos taken by local photographer Jackie.
