The Integrated Education Fund is delighted to share news of a Charity Ball hosted by Mayor of Ards and North Down Borough Council, Alderman Deborah Girvan. The special event takes place on Saturday 27 May at the Clandeboye Lodge Hotel, Bangor.
The Fund is honoured to be one of the Mayor’s charities for her year in office, alongside the Royal National Lifeboat Institution (RNLI) and the Samaritans.
Announcing her choices in June 2016, Alderman Girvan said
“I have thought long and hard about the charities that I want to support… I have chosen the Integrated Education Fund because I am an ardent supporter of integrated education. I know the incredible work that the Integrated Education Fund does to support the growth and development of integrated schools …”
Alderman Girvan set up a charity committee with a target of raising £30,000. The Ball will be a highlight of the year-long fundraising campaign.
Guests at the Ball, which runs from 7pm at the Clandeboye Lodge, will enjoy a welcome drinks reception sponsored by Denman, Bangor, a four course dinner and entertainment, as well as the chance to take home fabulous auction and ballot prizes.
Tickets for this event cost £45pp and the dress code is black tie.
