2013 KRFC CHARITY RUGBY BALL
Saturday 18th May 2013 in aid of 'When You Wish Upon a Star' Charity. Mere Golf Resort and Spa; tickets are 49.50GBP each. With guest hosts Ted Robbins and Paul Crone. Starts at 7:15pm for 7:45pm, carriages at 2:00am. Black tie and live band (The Harlequins and disco).
Knutsford Rugby Club has raised over 85,000GBP for the charity 'When You Wish Upon A Star' which seeks to helps children suffering from life threatening illnesses. It is an astonishing achievement which has helped the charity support children living in the UK with a life-threatening illness. In 2013, we are hoping to raise a further 15,000GBP to break through the 100,000GBP target.
We also hope to make the evening a great social success in addtion to helping the children's charity and Knutsford Rugby Club has joined forces with both Ted Robbins and Granada TV's Paul Crone (one of the charity patron's). The fusion of humour created by Ted and Paul leads to a rather unique chemistry seldom duplicated and rather good fun. To inject a jazzy pace to the end of the evening Knutsford Rugby we have a live performance from Harlequin (it will be special!).
Tickets are 49.50GBP each which comes with our guarantee that every penny of that is spent on your food, entertainment and enjoyment, leaving you to choose to support the charity on the night.
Please contact Steve on 07702 334 192 to book your tickets/tables.
Many thanks in advance for your support.
