Watoto Ball 2008

Watoto Charity Ball 2008Saturday 11th October 2008
The Hilton, Milton Keynes : 7pm till 1am.

Featuring brilliant local band Soul Selecta

A fantastic night was had at Watoto Charity ball this year. The night was relaxed and filled with laughter. From the gavel going down on the great auction lots on offer to the speach given by Watoto UK Directors Chas and Chris Musgrave, it was a night to remember.

The night was full of entertainment and was enjoyed even by our most timid of guests who dread the thought of a dance floor. However, with games being played, a wii on hand for the competitive spirit to surface, each and every guest had something they could enjoy.

The band Soul Selecta were utterly brilliant and topped the night off.

The evening raised a wonderful £5604.00 and was a great success. Thanks goes to everyone involved in bringing the evening together. From the chocoates wrapped with ribbon on the tables to the hand decorated programmes, the finer details could be seen everywhere. All proceeds have been given to Watoto.

"The night was brilliant. It is the best ball I have ever attended!"
