The genuine joy and excitement on the faces of the children (and families) arriving at the Ball will be something we, as a team, will truly treasure for the rest of our days!!!!
The venue was absolutely breathtaking, adorned with twinkling lights and elegant decorations that set the perfect ambiance for the festivities. It was heartwarming to see all the families, from the youngest to the oldest, all dressed up and beaming with joy.
Of course, no celebration is complete without delicious food, and we indulged in a scrumptious feast that left everyone's taste buds dancing with delight. From mouthwatering appetizers to delectable desserts, every bite was a testament to the love and care that went into planning this event.
But what truly made the evening magical were the moments we shared together. Laughter filled the air as we reminisced about funny anecdotes from the past, and tears of joy were shed as families reflected on the challenges they've overcome as a family. We danced, we hugged, and we laughed until our cheeks hurt - it was pure bliss!
🌟 What an incredible night at our Children with Cancer Fund 25 Year Anniversary Family Ball! We are still buzzing with excitement and overwhelmed with gratitude for everyone who made this event so extraordinary. 💛✨
From the bottom of our hearts, we want to express our deepest thanks to each and every one of you who attended, supported, and contributed to this memorable evening. 🙌🎗️
The room at the East Sussex National Golf Resort & Spa was transformed into a magical wonderland, filled with laughter, joy, and love. The amazing Hire Your Day was at the heart of all the decoration you could see across the venue with every single detail being thought about & we couldn't be happier with our services. The amazing chair covers and sashes from @frenchies looked stunning 🙂
Our amazing warriors and their families were beaming with happiness as they enjoyed the festivities and created beautiful memories that will last a lifetime. 🎉🌈
Special thanks go out to our dedicated team that worked tirelessly behind the scenes, ensuring that every detail was perfect.
