The Ilkley Candlelighters raise funds throughout the year in order to purchase equipment and fund treatment of children suffering from cancer.
The Ball a glamorous event and the committee set the benchmark high.
It’s a time to let your hair down, enjoy the entertainment and of course raise money for a great cause too.
There was a lot of balloons and it quickly became a sport to let them off cause as much mayhem as possible!
Auctioneer Jon Hammond whipped up the crowd in to a frenzy.
with bidding war’s for star prizes happening all around me…
Dancing seemed to be a major theme on the evening
with even a little dancing on the tables going on
The year the band was The Bogus Brothers who were a real party band!
As well as the band in The Radcliffe Room there was more entertainment including casino, multiplayer wii racing and pitch & putt
One of my favourite shots from the evening was an in love couple cuddling and laughing.
In total the night raised over £36000. I donated a prize to the auction which helped raise £800.
Along with taking the photos from the ball I also take the photographs which are used in the brochure to show the good work of the charity. Two of the photos from last year are now used on the main Candlelighters website.
