Promises Evening - 29 March

Raising funds for local charities

Auction of Promises

Our Club have agreed to hold a "Promises Evening" as a fundraising event on Wednesday 29 th March 2017 commencing at 7.00pm at Cams Hall Estate Golf Club. A buffet supper with a choice of either Chilli con Carne or Chicken Fricassee served with Rice or New Potatoes and Crusty Bread with a choice of Sweet and Coffee, will be followed by an Auction of promises provided by you the Members, either directly or obtained from a friend or acquaintance. The ticket price is £15.00 per head. This year we will be raising funds to assist 2 local projects in our community. Firstly to financially support a number of local "Young Carers" at the Young Carers Weekend Camp at Fairthorne Manor and secondly to support the Gosport and Fareham branch of Parkinson's UK.

The idea of the evening is that you offer to carry out a service, ie Cook a Dinner Party for 4 or 6 people in your home, cut someones grass when they are away on holiday or indeed taxi them to or from (or both) a local airport or cruise terminal. We will then auction your promise to the highest bidder who will pay the Club for the service you have offered.We hope that you will all be able to support this effort, both by providing promises and by bringing guests on the evening (together with yours/their cheque books or cash). Four years ago when we held the last promises evening we raised with your help around £3000.00 for local community projects.

If you would like to make a donation then please complete a Gift Aid Form and send it with your donation to the Treasurer.

If you want any more information before the Auction please talk to Geoff Smith and he will try to answer any query.
