20 December How The Duke of Edinburgh's Award is helping to shape careers
Sheriffs’ Ball is a roaring success
Friday night saw the Guildhall in London come alive as The Lord Mayor’s Appeal held its first ‘ball’ of the season.
The Sheriffs’ Ball had just under 400 people in attendance for the evening which was themed around the roaring 1920’s. Guests were greeted on the night by Gatsby Girls who later performed a cabaret set with the fabulous band The Piccadilly Dance Orchestra. Regulars for ballroom and tea dances at the Savoy, Queen Elizabeth Hall and Hyde Park Hilton the band also played a selection of 1920s music over the course of dinner.
Guests enjoyed a sparkling wine cocktail and canape reception followed by a three-course dinner with wine. After dinner there was more music when DJ William Bartholomew made sure guests danced away the night with his own DJ set.
As with all our events we look to raise money for our charity partners and at the Sheriffs’ Ball this included a True or False quiz and also a silent auction of 40 lots. The Sheriffs and The Lord Mayor's Appeal would like to thank everyone who have supported the event including table and ticket buyers, prize donors, donors and the Organising Committee.
