Northumbrian Water is calling on superheroes across the North East to help save lives at its WaterAid Ball.
Taking place on Friday, July 14, 2017 at Newcastle Racecourse, Gosforth Park from 7.00pm, the Comic Book-themed bash, will raise money for Northumbrian Water’s international charity partner, WaterAid.
WaterAid works in 37 countries worldwide, transforming millions of lives every year in some of the world’s poorest communities with clean water, safe toilets and hygiene education.
Businesses in the region can enjoy a champagne reception and three-course dinner at the ball, followed by a night of pow-tastic entertainment and fiendishly good prizes to be won. A table seating ten people costs £995.
All proceeds from the evening will contribute towards Northumbrian Water’s goal of raising £1 million for WaterAid projects in Madagascar. The funds will help the country’s families and communities gain long-lasting access to safe water and sanitation.
Northumbrian WaterAid Chairman, Andrew Blakemore, said: “I’m very excited about this year’s ball. It’s always a great evening which is enjoyed by everyone, all while raising vital funds for WaterAid.
“Water, sanitation and hygiene is something we all take for granted and yet in Madagascar, 2,100 children die every year from diarrhoea caused by unsafe water and sanitation. This is totally unacceptable in this day and age and we’re determined to do something about it.
“I would encourage caped crusaders to come along to our Comic Book Ball where they can become a true superhero and help save lives.”
More than £30,000 was raised at the Bugsy Malone-themed WaterAid Ball last year, helping to save around 2,000 lives.
Although traditionally a black tie event, there is the option to wear fancy dress with a prize for the best dressed.
