Saturday 10th June 2017
The St Piran’s Society Committee are excited to announce that the theme for this year’s Summer Ball on Saturday 10th June will be “Diamonds are Forever” !
It’s now time to start getting your tables of 10 together, choose your menu options and pre-order drinks, nominate a table organiser and return your forms together with payment to our Ticket Sales Day on Thursday 9th March 2017. We will be in the Big School dining room from 8.15-9.15am and 3.15 -4.15pm.
Please note that although we can accommodate some tables of 8 or 12 people, please try to keep to tables of 10.
If you would like to come but are unable to put a full table together, please hand in your ticket form and we will be happy to help put together a table for you. If you are unable to come along in person, forms and payment can be left in the Society postbox (on the wall outside Matron’s window) and will be picked up after the sales day and reserved on a first come first served basis.
Silent and Live Auction prizes and Advertising in the Ball Programme
If you have a suitable donation or know of a person or a company that would be willing to provide a silent or live auction prize for the Summer Ball or who might be willing to place an advert in the Summer Ball programme, please do let us know via the Society email: firstname.lastname@example.org
Popular prizes include entertainment tickets, sporting fixtures, holiday home/villas and ‘unusual experiences’ auction prizes. They have helped raise lots of money for the school and our supported local charities and are always really popular. If you'd like to advertise your own business in the Ball programme, please contact us and we will happy to send out details.
We are grateful to Active Security
for their sponsorship of the Summer Ball again this year.
In 2016, our Bollywood-themed Summer Ball was enjoyed by all who came along.
We made a profit of over £19,000 allowing us to begin the overhaul of the Upper School library as hoped, and build an amphitheatre/ staging area on the Lower School field for the children to use!
2015's ball raises a record-breaking amount!
For 2015's St Piran's Society Summer Ball, sponsored by Active Security,
we hosted a night of “Puttin' on the Ritz”
with 20’s & 30's, Gatsby & Downtown, Spats and Top hats!
374 bottles of wine, plenty of beer and cocktails consumed, we had some fabulous Live and Silent Auction prizes along with Sign a Tenner, the aim being to raise money towards a much needed additional minibus for the school, along with a donation to the Society's chosen charity, The Link Foundation. We were able to fulfil this aim, and more, as our evening raised a grand and record breaking total of £19,300!
Thanks to everyone for their support of the evening.
We were overwhelmed by the generosity of all those who came to our Rio themed Summer Ball in June 2014 and through our auction, raised a grand total of £14,000
