Charity Ball – Scarlett’s Wish

We were delighted to be asked to stage manage this fantastic fundraising event

Here’s a bit of background:
Three friends Gemma Savigar, Emily Wood and Billie Dee Roberts all hailing from Stoke have set up a charity fundraising organisation called “Scarlett’s Wish” to raise funds for Ronald McDonald House Organisation, which provides free home away from home accommodation to families with children having treatment in hospital. The Houses offer a place to stay, provide family activities, peer support and respite, enabling families to be by their child’s bedside in a matter of moments, whilst maintaining a degree of normal life with reduced emotional and financial strain.

Gemma’s Daughter, Scarlett was admitted to Alder Hey Hospital Liverpool at four weeks old. She was born with Volvulus (twisted bowel) and had to undergo emergency surgery and months of care and treatment. Gemma and her husband, Lee, were heavily supported by The Ronald McDonald House Organisation, providing accommodation to the family so they didn’t have to worry about the stress and expense of a daily commute to Liverpool from Stoke, giving the couple a few less worries and burdens to have to manage whilst trying to be there for Scarlett.

Billie one of the organisers said,

“Scarlett is now a happy and healthy 7-year-old little girl still hasn’t been discharged from Alder Hey Children’s Hospital but hopefully on her next visit, she will be.” Scarlett recently told her Mum Gemma that her biggest wish is to help other children and families, and from that the “Scarlett’s Wish” concept was born and we decided to host a fundraising event and loved the idea of having a ball!

We have a fantastic night planned. The 3 course Dinner, Dance & Giggle Ball is a brilliant opportunity to dress up have a good laugh and at the same time as raising funds for this great cause. If you’re a group of friends, work colleagues or looking for a team building event, it’s an ideal night out.

On stage we have Chris Stoke magician, illusionist and mind reader, soul and Motown vocalist Nicci, we’ll be showcasing Ciara stand up comedian with her dry ‘Stokie’ humour. Headlining the ball is FunkyRhythmix, a sensational six piece funk band covering all the best floor fillers such as Earth, Wind & Fire, Shalamar, CHIC, Stevie Wonder tempting you to get up and boogie. Compare and host for the evening will be drag queen Ivy Rose with raffle prizes donated by local businesses plus disco with Radio Presenter Stu Haycock.

Along with a 3 course meal, drink on arrival, on stage we have Chris Stoke magician, illusionist and mind reader headlining FunkyRhythmix, 🎤host drag artist Ivy Rose Ivy Rose, with Nicci – A Tribute to Soul and Motown , comedian Ciara Hicks-Evans and magician Chris Stokes Magic and DJ Craig Baxter and guest presenting the auction ex Stoke City player Ricardo Fuller.
