Businesses from around the West Midlands joined Jardine Motors Group for an evening of glitz and glamour at its annual charity ball to raise £12,596 for UK charities Whizz Kidz, Legacy4Lucy and Promise Dreams.
The event at Dunstall Park featured live entertainment including a performance from X Factor finalist, Joseph Whelan and band, Marilyn Monroe and Will Smith lookalikes, and the opportunity to snap a selfie in Back to the Future’s iconic DeLorean.
The £12,596 was raised through ticket sales, as well as from further entertainment on the night including an auction, raffle and game of bingo.
The funds will go towards helping to transform the lives of children with disabilities across the UK via the work of Whizz Kidz, helping to find a cure for breast cancer via Legacy4Lucy and helping to make the dreams of terminally-ill children come true through Promise Dreams.
Andy Davies, Audi brand director at Jardine Motors Group, said: “Whizz Kidz, Legacy4Lucy and Promise Dreams are all brilliant charities that truly make a difference for the people that they support.
“We’d like to offer a huge thank you to everyone who came along, as well as our sponsors, Three Pines and Vehicle Connections, whose generosity all enabled our 5th annual ball to be our most successful yet, raising an amazing £12,596.”
Jardine Motors Group formed a charity partnership with Whizz Kidz in 2014. Jardine donates £25 for every Motability vehicle sold by one of their dealerships and offers work placement opportunities to young people with disabilities in a variety of roles.
