AN unforgettable night of Indian food, entertainment, dancing and fund-raising is promised when HEAL holds its first Autumn Ball in Peterborough on October 8.
Following the success of previous HEAL India Nights, which have raised many thousands of pounds for disadvantaged children in poverty-stricken areas of south-east India, organisers have decided to make this year’s event an even grander occasion.
The Fleet, in Peterborough, will host the first HEAL Autumn Ball, a black tie sit-down dinner, which will include entertainment from dance groups, a DJ, and a band.
Of course it is not only about having a fun evening, but an all-important chance to raise funds for HEAL and especially its current major project, the Paradise Village in Vijayawada, Andhra Pradesh.
“Instead of the usual raffle, we will be having an auction this year,” says Helen Rome, who has organised HEAL India Nights for the past four years.
“The event is very different with the Autumn Ball being a formal black-tie dinner, rather than the buffet-style arrangement of previous years.
“The gatherings are extremely important, giving people the chance to socialise and help a worthy cause, while keeping HEAL at the forefront of their mind.
“The large forum also allows new people to come along and hopefully help us to raise even more than the £6,000 or so we have achieved in the past.”
Ticket prices for the Autumn Ball are £50, with tables of 12 available.
Venue: The Fleet, Fleet Way, Fletton, Peterborough. Start time 7pm for 7.30, until midnight.
