With so many events in the winter months we love to support our local charities. This autumn we get the chance to support two with our unique ‘Dress to Donate’ scheme.
Our first is the NSPCC who are holding the Bournemouth Childline 30 Gala Ball in aid of Childline on Saturday 8 October at the Hilton Hotel in Bournemouth with guest celebrity Wendi Peters who plays Cilla from Coronation Street.
The following month we are pleased to be supporting the Great Gatsby-themed Gala Ball at Poole’s Lighthouse on Saturday 26 November to raise funds for Diverse Abilities which helps to make a difference to the lives of children and adults with disabilities in Dorset.
With one of the largest selections of evening and cocktail dresses on the south coast we have lots of choice to offer ticket holders to charity events and by joining the ‘Dress to Donate’ scheme charities can gain additional donations totalling 10% of every full price dress sold to anyone attending their event. Of course we will also keep an event log and although many of our dresses we only have one of we will make sure we won’t sell the same dress to anyone else attending a particular charity event.
We have always been committed to supporting local charities and have raised thousands of pounds over the last 15 years for various causes primarily through charity fashion shows. Our ‘Dress to Donate’ scheme is a novel fundraising opportunity for charities and we’re so delighted to be supporting two high-profile charity events in Bournemouth and Poole this autumn. It’s a great excuse to get your glad rags on and do some good for local children and adults less fortunate than ourselves.
If you are organising a black-tie charity event and would like to know more about the ‘Dress to Donate’ scheme, please contact Tracie on 01202 765352 and we’ll be happy to give you more information.
