Rovers event targeted to raise £20,000 for Blackburn Youth Zone

8 February 2016

A 'Golden Gala Dinner' is being organised and hosted by Rovers and will take place on Thursday 11th February 2016 at the luxurious Premier Suite at Ewood Park in aid of Blackburn Youth Zone.

Laura Jones, Events Manager at Blackburn Youth Zone, said, "Blackburn Rovers Football Club are Premier Patrons of Blackburn Youth Zone and we were delighted to hear they would be hosting the annual Blackburn Youth Zone ball. The event is also kindly being sponsored by Clarke & Clarke, a family run design and distributions company based in Rossendale. We can't thank either of them enough for their support".

Blackburn Rovers 'Golden Gala Dinner' is set to bring together East Lancashire's business community for a night of celebration, food, drink, and entertainment with their customers, contacts, employees, friends and family members – and all to raise funds for this admirable and valuable local cause".

"Blackburn Youth Zone relies on voluntary donations in order to continue its fantastic work. It's running costs each year are largely funded by its Patron Programme – made up of the local business community – so supporting charity events organised by its corporate supporters is vital to the charity's ongoing success.

"Blackburn Rovers set themselves an astonishing target of £20,000 for this event and we are hoping that together with the support from the business community we can achieve it! All monies raised at the event will help Youth Zone to continue its great work with the town's young people."

The last few tables for the event are now on sale at £750 plus vat (for ten guests), which will include a drinks and canapes reception, a delicious three course meal prepared by Northcote, wine on the table, live music from The Funtime Frankies and dancing until the early hours.

If you are unable to attend the event, there is also the opportunity to support Rovers fundraising by donating a prize for the auction or raffle which will take place on the night.

If you would like to book a table or donate a prize, please get in touch with Laura Jones at Blackburn Youth Zone on 01254 292000 or by email at laura.jones@blackburnyz.org
