The Ball will take place on the evening of 16 September and is pink themed.

The organiser of the glittering ball, Johnathon Tinning, is hoping to raise money for the Breast Cancer Now charity after his wife lost her brave battle against cancer in 2005.

The UK’s largest breast cancer charity is dedicated to funding research into the devastating disease and all proceeds from the ball will be donated to Breast Cancer Now.

The ball will include a three-course meal as well as entertainment, live music, the auction and a raffle.

Tickets for the ball are priced at £450 for a table of 10.

Jonathan is hoping that 300-450 people will attend on the night to help raise money in memory of his wife Joanne who lost her seven year fight against breast cancer at the age of 37.

Jonathan Tinning, a Preston-based businessman who runs his own HR consultancy, said: “Since then and because I can’t do the Race for Life I’ve taken part in various charity events to raise money for breast cancer research.

“Cancer has affected so many people and families personally, we’ve all been touched in some way or another.

“Breast Cancer Now is a great cause to support and people can do so while also having a great time.

“This is going to be our biggest and best ball ever and we’re putting together a great evening of live entertainment but the most important thing is the fundraising aspect, helping to save lives and changing people’s futures.”

Jonathan is looking for local companies to step forward, book tables  and donate raffle prizes, auction items and consider one of the many sponsorship packages on offer.

Johnathon continued: “Businesses and individuals can sponsor anything from the table decorations to the DJ and band, or they can give something for our 450 gift bags that we are handing out on the evening.”

For more information you can contact Jonathan on 07866 496936, or email him.
