SRFC Gamechanger Casino Ball raises £12,500!

The SRFC Gamechanger Casino Fundraiser Ball took place at the stunning Haynes Motor Museum on Saturday 17th November.

Main sponsors of the event Porter Dodson greeted the 240 guests who attended with a glass of bubbles on arrival. Whilst sipping on their drinks guests could wander freely around the Red Room (kindly sponsored by PS Mailing) and view the amazing cars on display which included the Alfa Romeo Spider and Porsche Boxster.

A three course meal was then followed by the auction with Mike Burkes of The Gardens Group (another sponsor of the evening) stepping in as the very entertaining guest autioneer! Is the turkey alive and well in Dorset?

The Casino tables were then open for business and guests played solidly until they closed at midnight. We have no idea of who the winners were but all seemed to thoroughly enjoy gambling.

Casino Table Sponsors: F Cuff & Sons, JP Fabrications, The Gardens Group, and Alastair Dalziel

Lee Dewberry and his Pulse Roadshow (sponsored by Cuff Gardening and Countryside Services) played awesome tunes back in the Merlin room and dancing continued into the early hours.

Decoration was sponsored by Dorset Timber Engineering and The Local Boiler Company sponsored Security for the evening.

The raffle eventually took place and thank you to all those who donated both auction/raffle prizes and Evans and Pearce Ltd - Sponsor of the 1st and 2nd Cash prizes.

The evening was an outstanding success raising a staggering £12,500!
