This Sunday 23rd March, Nottingham Jewish Society is holding our annual charity ball, and we’ve chosen two incredibly worthy charities to support.
Zichron Menachem is the Israeli charity for the support of children with cancer and their families. It offers support from the moment a child has been diagnosed with cancer and provides care for children whose parents are suffering from cancer. It is the first and only Israeli day care centre for education and rehabilitation for children with cancer.
Great Ormond Street Hospital is the world leading hospital in child healthcare offering excellent medical advice and treatment to children with serious and life threatening illnesses. We hope to raise money to aid in the £45million redevelopment scheme in the rebuilding and modernisation of wards. We hope that our money can help facilitate the increase of space for patients and the ability to improve patient care.
Apart from ticket sales and sponsorship, there will also be an opportunity to contribute further to these great charities: We’re holding a raffle during the night, with unbelievable prizes to be won including hotel stays, hampers, paintballing trips and many more… So don’t forget to bring your wallets along!
Tickets cost £40 and guests will enjoy a delicious three-course kosher meal, copious amounts of free alcohol, and great entertainment. It’s a brilliant opportunity to dress up and throw a party for a great cause, and being one of the largest (and obviously the best!) JSoc in the country, it’s sure to be an amazing night!
Hope to see you all there!
