Doncaster’s business community were dressed to the nines and ready to party at the Diamond Ball held in the magnificent surroundings of Bawtry Hall on 28th September.
The Diamond Ball was organised by Doncaster Business for the Community, the ground breaking and highly innovative charitable trust run entirely by the town’s business community which raises much needed funds for local charities and community projects. The event marked DB4C’s second collaboration with Equinox to raise funds to support cancer patients through Firefly and Cancer Research.
Almost two hundred guests filled Bawtry Hall and were involved in a lively game of Heads & Tails with one lucky person winning the big prize of the evening a much sought after diamond pendant valued at £2000 which was very kindly donated by Time For Diamonds of Bawtry. Guests were then treated to a stunning fireworks display in the grounds of Bawtry Hall and saw out the evening on the roulette and card tables followed by a disco with dancing into the early hours.
“The annual Ball is our only non-sports related event and once again it was a huge success which is firmly established in the social calendar. DB4C has achieved so much since it was founded two years ago and our last three events alone have broken all previous records proving that the town’s businesses have a huge heart and care deeply about the community and its well being. We will drive on and look forward to holding more events in 2020.”
DB4C Director Nigel Tomlinson
As a result of the evenings fund raising activities, which also included an auction and raffle and the incredible generosity of the guests and the many Doncaster based businesses that donated prizes, DB4C set another record for the event.
“For Equinox to once again be asked to be the representative of our charities at the Diamond Ball was a huge privilege. Both Cancer Research and Firefly rely on donations and charity fundraising to operate and both play such a huge part in the diagnosis, prevention and treatment of Cancer both nationally and locally. The Doncaster business community have taken Equinox to their hearts and with the money raised at the Ball we hope to have a record fundraising year.”
