Cedar Court Hotels Yorkshire has confirmed that it will become headline sponsor, donating an impressive £10,000 to the Children of Achievement Awards, which is the only event dedicated to celebrating the bravery and talents of young people from across the Wakefield District.
Becoming first ever headline sponsor for the event, Cedar Court Hotels Yorkshire will take naming rights to the awards, which attract hundreds of people from across the District and raised almost £7,000 during its inaugural celebration last year.
The awards ceremony brings together young people that showcase their bravery or talents to be named as winner of each of seven categories. Following a champagne reception and three-course dinner, guests hear more from the winners who take to the stage to share their stories before collecting a certificate.
Entertainment is provided throughout the event with a raffle and games before dancing concludes the evening.
Chairman of WACCL and the Children of Achievement Awards, Ian Taylor, said: “Cedar Court Hotels Yorkshire have been very generous in the support that they have given us over the years but this really is something else. Attracting a headline sponsor will make all of the difference to this event and takes us one step closer to hitting our target of £50,000.
“It’s not only about making the event an occasion that the winners will never forget, but also about remembering that the money raised will fund local organisations that deliver life changing support for young people from across our District.”
John Horvath from Cedar Court Hotels Yorkshire said: “We are very pleased to show our support to the Children of Achievement Awards. Having hosted the WACCL dinner for many years, we have seen first-hand the work, time and commitment that goes into these events and what can be achieved as a result.
“Putting our name to this activity makes us very proud and we hope that other businesses in the District will come forward to show their support too.”
The Children of Achievement Awards will take place on Saturday 23 June at Cedar Court Hotel Wakefield from 6pm – midnight. Tables of ten are £500, with individual tickets available at £50 each, which can be purchased online. For further details please visit: www.waccl.co.uk.
