Big thanks to everyone who gave so generously and joined in the fun, Its always a “first in the diary event”.
£20,000 raised on the night, easily surpassing the landmark and amazing £250,000 running total since this terrific venture started
Sarah Pattinson is the founder. Here’s how it started. “If your sister was diagnosed with breast cancer what would you do ? I organised a charity Pink Ball to distract her during her treatment. Kimberley was too ill to help with the organisation and it took all her courage to attend on the night and what a night ! The night which launched Pink Events”
That was back in 2005, and since then Sarah and other members of the family have been hit by Cancer. But their spirit and humour have helped them overcome the odds and finding more and more ways of raising money for this so important cause.
I’m proud to be a patron of Pink Events, and love my visits to Leeds to host the Ball and auction.
