Harrogate based artisan gin, Slingsby, has announced their return as silver partner for Yorkshire’s most prestigious charity event, The Firecracker Ball.
Highlight of Yorkshire’s social calendar, The Firecracker Ball, which raises considerable funds for Barnardo’s causes across Yorkshire, will take place this Saturday, once again in a bespoke marquee at Rudding Park Hotel in Harrogate.
Slingsby’s team of hand-picked mixologists will provide Slingsby signature cocktails throughout the evening and a ‘circus’ themed backdrop is to play host to the celebrations, with a number of new surprises in store for the hundreds of guests at the black-tie event.
High profile celebrity performances and ‘money can’t buy’ auction prizes are promised and the direct beneficiaries of this year’s fundraising will soon be announced.
Marcus Black, co-founder and managing director, said: “We’re delighted to be supporting the Firecracker Ball for the second year running.
“Our Slingsby Gin bar will provide Slingsby Gin cocktails into the night and we’re looking forward to being part of such a prestigious event which will once again raise money for such a fantastic cause.”
Barnardo’s relationship manager Kirsty Guy said: “We are really grateful to the companies and individuals who help us deliver this fantastic event to the highest standards, in the most cost-effective way, giving our participants the greatest support.
“Funds are helping to make sure Barnardo’s in Yorkshire can continue to offer services that are in strong demand by the local community, including support for young people leaving care, young carers, family support including a holiday club for children with complex health needs including physical disabilities, life limiting conditions and learning disabilities.”
The Firecracker Ball has become the most significant event in the Yorkshire social calendar helping to change the lives of thousands of children and young people across Yorkshire. Since 2002 the ball has raised over £2m for Barnardo’s causes.
The Firecracker Ball committee is actively seeking support from individuals and businesses in the region who are interested in sponsorship packages, table bookings or donating auction or other prizes for the charity.
