Gala dinner raises great sum
ALL the razzmatazz of the swinging twenties helped business professionals raise almostÂ Â£2,000 for charity.
Members of R3'sÂ southern committee drummed up an impressive sum for cancer charity, Myeloma UK, during their annual black tie ball.
This year's Great Gatsby-themed event was staged at Southampton Harbour Hotel and was in memory ofÂ Adrian Rann, who used to work with accountsÂ James Cowper Kreston.
Adrian died in December following a short battle with myeloma, a form of blood cancer. Mike Pavitt, chairman of R3 southern committee said Myeloma UK was a charity '˜close to the hearts' of members.
Following a sit-down dinner, guests took part in a fundraising raffle and were invited to try their luck with 'fun money' in the casino entertainment, with live music provided by Tom Guyer and his Gatsby band.
