I wanted to tell you about a fantastic charity event that comes to Leeds United every November for one night only!
On the 11th November 2010 the Gala dinner event of Make A Dream returns to Elland Road's conference centre for a fun packed night but more importantly to raise as much money as possible.
Make A Dream is a Leeds based charity making “Dreams” come true for Yorkshire’s sick and terminally ill children. Throughout the night films of M.A.D stories play reminding everyone what their donations are helping to create. Some children want to swim with dolphins or visit NASA and others may only want a visit to a football stadium or to meet a famous celebrity. The charity raises money to help as many children fulfil their dreams, but some unfortunately don’t make it to their special day.
Most years I attend to help with the evening. The night is built up of around 120 tables of 12 guests, a three course meal, celebrity guests (this year being Bobby Davro, Sir David Frost and Harry Redknapp) and a vast range of products for auction. The nights aim is to raise as much money as possible but also allows guests to enjoy an eventful evening.
