Finally a huge Thank You again from me to everyone who has helped this year I know 2013 is going to be a massive year for The Charity, The Ball and us.

This is the final post of 2012 as things wind down here at Big Ball Central for Christmas. I realise that I have so many people to Thank for their help and generosity in helping to make Alexander's Charity Ball 2013 the biggest and best yet.
Over the last couple of weeks Richard Crossfield, a local businessman and friend of ours has offered sponsorship and through his generosity (and a little bit of cheekiness on my part) we are able to light the ballroom in the most stunning of ways. Richard and Danielle have been great supporters of the ball and inadvertently Richard helped us through when Alexander died, we had just confirmed our house move the day before. I don't think we've actually ever said Thank You formally for Richard's help during what could have been an even more difficult situation.
This week I have booked our pre dinner entertainment as well in the form of Graeme Cox or Party Joe, on a Mum's Christmas Night Out Graeme was playing at the pub, he was brilliant and so I decided to bite the bullet and ask if by any chance he was free. I think he's just what we need to set the atmosphere at the start of the night and if anyone has any requests for a song let me know and I can ask Graeme to add it to his set list. There are some previews of songs on his website so please go and take a look _http://party-joe.com/fr_home.cfm
So finally all that remains is for me to say a few Thank You's to all our sponsors for the evening, everyone who has bought a ticket to attend, all our raffle prize donators and everyone who has supported us.
Your belief in my cause and me is overwhelming and without it none of this would go ahead
Have an amazing Christmas and a very Prosperous 2013
See you in the New Year !
Just a very quick update !!!

If you can help me by selling some to family and friends I would be so so grateful, they are £1 per ticket. Anyone purchasing £10 worth of tickets will gain one entry into out TOP 3 prize draw, the details are available on the Raffle Prize draw page on the website.
Payment for tickets can be made by Bank Transfer or Cheque, we cannot take Paypal payments unfortunately as it's classed as gambling so Paypal won't let us do it.
