Well , what a wonderful show ! The girls were fantastic ! I really don`t know how on earth Shelly managed to put a show like that together- it must have been a huge amount of hard work -Shelley I take my hat of to you ! Our " team " arrived about half past six and started to set our table up immediately - the dancers and familys had already started to arrive, we had a prime position right outside the main entrance way, looking back I think it must have been a little intimidating as as I don`t think many people actually made it past us without buying a ticket ! I did manage to catch the first part of the show-The old smoke machine was going , setting the scene-you could feel the excitement growing ! the whole thing was very fast paced and smooth-girls of different ages [and some boys ] all coming on to do a set, some freestyle and some hip hop dancing to Alexander Burke, Pixie Lott , Cheryl Cole and many more ! The costumes were brilliant [ you must be very proud of you mum Shelley ] and the lighting effects and fire works - superb !
Tracey and I went backstage to deliver the raffle tickets to the compere who was drawing them at the second half- what an eye opener ! I walked down what seemed like miles and miles of corridors with rooms packed full of girls all having their hair and make up done- Imagine having to control that lot ! On the whole things ran quite smoothly- I did manage to leave a few of the raffle prizes at home and had to hotfoot it back to collect them- arriving just in time before the end of the show ! phew ! Every commented on what great prizes we had -a huge thank you to every one who donated a prize- not forgetting the gentleman from Marine motors who made a last minute donation of a free car MOT -the lady who won it was delighted !
and to Delyth for the beautiful hand made cushion which we have decided to keep for our next raffle !
We made £ 327.00 !!! Special thanks to our team -Tracy, Peter , Debbie , John ,Chris , Ann ,Tim and Ned xxxxxx

I think an amount over 200£ would have been excellent for an hour's work.... but over 300 was fantastic
well done for arranging it all

You can now relax (collapse) until the next one!
LOL!

Ann said...

Great raffle prizes, just right for the audience I found myself chuckling when the compere was about to draw the winning ticket for the bathroom scales, there was a wooo of anticipation and everyone leaned forward the lady who won stood up shaking her tickets and squealing with delight. It was a lovely moment. Well done Jan you put a lot of thought into the prizes. Your team of raffle ticket sales personel were obivously handpicked for their skills. I thoughly enjoyed myself once again. xx

Janet said...

Thanks Ann ! I know what you mean -when the lady who had won the scales came to collect them she was grinning like a cheshire cat -those are mine she said and off she went hugging them !!!

Jayne said...
