On the 12th October we returned to the wonderful venue of the Hilton at The Ageas Bowl for our 15th annual Gala Dinner.
We'd like to thank the brilliant Sax4, members of the Southampton Grad Band who performed throughout pre dinner drinks, and of course Novum Law who generously sponsored this sparkling drinks reception.
Congratulations to Ross Fripp, our 2019 winner of the Smile4Rich Fundraiser of the Year Award for his incredible "Everesting" challenge, which he undertook in March! This award was kindly sponsored by MarineSpace for the 4th year and presented by Rob Langman.
Thank you also to all our community fundraisers who have supported us over the last year, but especially to our other shortlisted nominee's, Matthew Claxson and his team from Moore Blatch for their marathon 26 mile sponsored walk on the 8th June from Chandlers Ford to Lymington, and William Edwards and Steve Caldwell for their epic 100km Thames Path Challenge on the 7th September. Such amazing challenges from all our nominee's, but unfortunately we could only choose one winner.
We'd also like to say a huge thank you to Tim Smith for running our auction, and of course to The Strand for another brilliant night of entertainment as they joined us for the 10th year!
Lastly, thank you so much to everyone who attended, and made this years Smile4Rich Gala Dinner such a success, raising in the region of £9230!
Thank you all so much for your continued support .. We hope you had an enjoyable evening and look forward to seeing you next year!
