Wax job is chest the job!
Our thanks to all involved in the joint fund-raiser with the K9 refuge on 26th May at theTop Square, Golf del Sur. Many entertainers donated their time, including Colin Stevens, Robbie Dominic, Dave Ferry, Big Chris and Jan Monroe. A sponsored chest wax went on in Slippers bar, swelling the funds. A fantastic 610 euros was raised for the two refuges, which is brilliant in these hard times.
We also thank the group who organised the fiesta in El Rancho, Palm Mar. Unfortunately, because of a communication breakdown, some of our supporters were unhappy with the event, as it was not what they were expecting.
It is always strange when a third party offers to host a fund-raiser, especially when our key people cannot be there to oversee events through work commitments. But the event was staged with a good heart, and a total of 200 euro was raised for our dogs.
We apologise to those who were disappointed and hope you will continue to support our regular fund-raisers. It is important to us that our charity shows are enjoyed by all but, sadly, this is not always 100% possible.
Come to the Wigan Pier, Starco, Las Americas, for a night of mayhem on Tuesday, 26th June. With shock-in-a-frock Crystal Star, Andy Phillips, and guests, this will be a good one.
The following Tuesday, 3rd July, we have Water Aid. Can you help us raise 980 euros to pay our water bill at the refuge? If so, join us for a night of fine dining and entertainment at Restaurant Maria, El Nautico Suites, Golf del Sur. Ticket prices and entertainment will be confirmed next week.
TheGillianBanksTheatreSchoolmake a welcome return to our shores in the first week of August. Venues and dates to be confirmed. But after last October’s epic events, which raised over 3,000 euros, we hope to repeat the success and give the lucky few another night to remember. Watch this space.
