De Vere Dunston Hall Variety Club Charity Golf Day and May Ball

De Vere Dunston Hall hotel near Norwich is staging a Charity Golf Day on Wednesday, May 25 and May Ball on Friday, May 27 in aid of the Variety Club’s Children’s Charity.

Golfers are invited to enter teams of four for the golf day (£140 per team) on May 25. The day begins with breakfast rolls at 11am, followed by a 18 holes of golf (Texas Scramble), with prizes for the top five teams, plus additional prizes for nearest to the pin on all par threes and beat the pro on the 14th hole. Buffet meal and prize giving at the end of the afternoon.

The Variety Club May Ball on May 27 kicks off with a champagne reception at 7.15pm, followed by a four-course dinner in the Sunningdale Suite, with dancing to Dynamite and an auction and raffle. Tickets for the ball cost £45 per person or £400 for a table of 10.

Golf professional, Richard Tidy, who is co-ordinating the events said: “Last year we raised £10,000 from our first golf day and May Ball in aid of the Variety Club. It funded one third of the cost of a new Sunshine Coach. This year we are hoping to raise £11,000 for the Variety Club. We have already had a lot of interest from our golf club members who have signed up for both the golf and May Ball, but still have tickets and places for both events.”
