Fillies in Posh Frocks; Champagne and Cabaret; Silver Service dining in the heart of breathtaking Surrey countryside

It's time to dust of your dancing shoes for THE THOROUGHBRED CHRISTMAS BALL, at Wildwood Golf & Country Club on Saturday 1st November 2014.

 

Last year's Inaugural Thoroughbred Ball was a roaring success enjoyed by all and this year's black tie event will follow the same format. The Christmas Ball is more than a wining and dining experience; as well as the Champagne reception and a sumptuous three course silver service dinner; there will be a show-stopping Cabaret performance from the very best Frank Sinatra tribute artist in the world, Ian Gallagher.


There is an opportunity to participate in the fun 'Tops and Tails' event to win half a case of Champagne; participate in the £5 Tombola and a Charity Auction, offering one-off sought after lots which will make desirable Christmas Presents.

 

The Ball is an important event the fundraising calendar at the Racehorse Sanctuary, a registered Charity desperately in need of funds to support an expanding racehorse welfare programme, due to the sheer number of horses currently being abandoned or neglected.

 


Save this very special date and join us for some very stylish entertainment!

 

Thoroughbred Christmas Ball ticket prices:
Individual tickets - £85
Table of 8 - £650
Table of 10 - £800

The Racehorse Sanctuary's 2014 Christmas Card are now available

Christmas cards are always a valuable source of income for the Sanctuary thanks to the generosity of our supporters who order them to send to their friends, an old-fashioned but important way of keeping in touch, even in these days of instant communication and social media.

 

In a break with traditional season's greetings, for 2014 we have selected this wonderfully evocative painting 'Brave War Horses 1917', by Lionel Edwards reminding us of the estimated eight million horses who gave their lives during the First World War.

 

It tugs at the heart-strings and as we remember that war 100 years on, the Trustees decided unanimously, that this should be the Sanctuary's Christmas Card for 2014.

 

Greeting inside your card: Best Wishes for Christmas and the New Year
Size of card: 6"x 8"
Cost per pack (10 cards): £9.50 inclusive of postage and packing

 

If you would like to order your cards, please contact: Pauline Passmore on 07712 346604 or 01935 850559
