With the weather we have been having over the last of week it was touch and go whether we would be able to give Sharon our support. The day has finally arrived and we have all, by various means arrived safely.
We checked in and introduced ourselves to Sharon then set the band up in the Warwick Suit.
At 7.30pm the main party made their way from the drinks reception into the ballroom. During the first course The Redfords played a few slow tempo songs to set the atmosphere. Make you feel My Love, If I Ain’t Got You and To Love Somebody. Throughout the remainder of the excellent meal Jessica Sutton played very moving and accomplished music on the harp. It was a lovely accompaniment to the atmosphere of the evening.
Once the meal had finished and those of us who were pretending to diet had finished checking to see that the chocolate fountain was safe to use! Glen kicked off the entertainment by singing a few old favourites and telling some well-oiled jokes. Laura Hastings from the West Midlands the winner of the recent Sharon Fox talent contest sang Angel (Sarah McLaughlin) and You don’t have to say you love me (Dusty Springfield) both songs were very poignant and reduced many tears.
After a short break for the raffle and the grand Charity auction The Redfords launched in to I gotta feeling by the Black Eyed Peas. The music and dancing went on seamlessly until the stroke of 00.00 when sadly the evening had to come to an end.
May we say that we have tremendous admiration for Sharon Fox who looked stunning in her beautiful white ball gown and feel privileged to have been a part of her dream to bring comfort and support to women in the West Midlands who are affected by breast cancer.
Sharon we love you!!
