There'll be fire dancers, live music, and comedian Patrick Monahan will host!
Tickets are selling out for the Furnley House Foundation Summer Ball on Saturday, May 6.
Held at Winstanley House, the evening aims to raise a significant amount for local causes. Last year's ball raised over £45,000 for Leicestershire charities.
The foundation is born out of local Financial Adviser and Mortgage Brokers Furnley House’s ambition to create opportunities and improve lives in their local community. They hold a number of events throughout the year to help bring the community together and raise money.
This year's headline charity is Falcon Support Services, who help people who are homeless or in need to find independence through housing and community support. They were selected after winning the Charity of the Year category at the 2022 Leicestershire Community Champions Awards (LCCA).
Entertainment for the ball will feature fire dancers, a charity auction, live music and more, with proceedings hosted by comedy star Patrick Monahan.
"We’d love to see as many people as possible at this year’s Summer Ball," said Simon Winfield, Chairman of the Furnley House Foundation and Managing Director of Red Monkey Play. "Our hope is that tens of thousands of pounds are raised, and we can make a real difference to local people.
"Previous Balls have been fantastic evenings and have received lots of support, helping us to achieve our mission of improving and saving lives in Leicester and Leicestershire."
Marie Davis, CEO of Falcon Support Services, said: "Winning the LCCA Charity of the Year was a huge achievement for Falcon Support Services. We have spent over 20 years providing homelessness support and prevention as well as vital mental health support.
"In extremely testing times, being the chosen charity of the year for the Furnley House Foundation will provide much needed additional funds. Vital funds that will ensure that our dedicated staff can continue the fantastic support we give and help to facilitate much brighter and productive futures for those people in urgent need."
