The tropical gardens and landscaped pool and waterfalls of Camping International Resort La Marina, was the setting for the VIII Butterfly Charity Ball organised by Mary Chambers & Sue Rogers. The event raised an outstanding €6,378.15 for DEBRA-Butterfly Children Charity.
The glittering annual event hosted by Tommy Rogers was held on Friday 22nd September, with 200 guests gathered for a spectacular evening of good food, wine and top entertainment courtesy of Rob Sweeney sponsored by Currencies Direct, also the chance to win and buy some unique, one off gifts in the raffle and auction.
The after dinner speech was given by Mary and she announced that the charity was celebrating 10 years in Urb. La Marina. Mary mentioned since the shop opened in Urb. La Marina the support and friendship given to the charity has been unconditional and the children and their families know you are always there supporting them every step of the way.
Before the entertainment started Tommy presented the winners of the Lucky Numbers Cameron Stewart, Brian Jones and Di Ennis with their €50 prize money and €100 was given back to the charity.
