W.O.W..or should I say W.A.N … What a night! All organised by Jean Reiterbund fund raiser for MABS on Gran Alacant. It is amazing how this lady takes all of this upon herself to achieve these Cancer fundraising events. The vast dining room looked fantastic for the 150 guests who arrived at the hotel Gran Playa in Santa Pola. A lovely meal was provided and many fund raising, raffles etc. took place. A 3 piece band played 2 sets which of course pleased many of the dancers. One of the highlights, at the end of the evening, was your own sponsored helium filled balloon, which had a tag on it of a deceased loved one, which were released around midnight into the night sky. Jackie Philips the founder of M.A.B.S. presented Jean with the very first award for services to M.A.B.S. Jean said that she was not alone in her goal to have a hospice here on Gran Alacant, as without the support of Margaret Smith, Sue and Martyn Gorfin and Lin and Bill Hodges, she could not reach the hights she was aiming for.
Numerous photos were taken by Martyn Gorfin. If you would like a copy of any photo you see, you can purchase it for 5 euro per photo, from Martyn, money donated to M.A.B.S.
Jean would also like to thank Mac and Angie from Aquarius who sponsored the band, raffle, and an overnight room at the hotel. Also balloons sponsored by Kenneth James in the UK and thanks also to Natasha and Carl who did our balloons at a special price with extras.
A total of 3,455.00 euro was raised on the night for the Hospice.
