...for a while anyway.
This has been a terribly hard decision for us to come too but we feel it's the right time to go out with a bang. In February Alexander will have been gone for 10 years. In some ways it feels like only yesterday and in others its been so long.
When I think that February 2017 will be our last Ball I feel a bit panicked, like I'm letting him down or even worse that I'm letting him go. The reason I started the ball was to give us a focus, a way to remember him with something so very positive and I think we have achieved that.
We rely on so much goodwill and so many people have given us so much so very freely every year I really cannot Thank them enough.
Glamourpuss Weddings who have been with us since the start and who have provided our venues with the wow factor, Giant Events who joined us in 2013 and shared a wealth of knowledge and experience giving Alexander's Charity Ball a sparkle and shine that I just couldn't have done alone.
Our Sponsors Crowther Group and Coda Studios who have both been with us since the start and who have given us the money to achieve our dreams.
These are just a few of the people who have helped us out over the last 6 years.
It gets harder and harder to ask each year and the donations are getting fewer and fewer so I want to have time to recharge and I'm thinking that a big one every 5 years is the way to go.
I'm not scared of a little hard work but it does get a little soul destroying the more no's and sorry's we get.
So, if you have thought about attending after seeing all our pictures and posts now is the time to do it. If you have thought about donating or sponsoring us please please get in touch.
Lets make Alexander's 10th Anniversary Charity Ball our biggest and best yet I cannot do this without you.
