06 Sep SUPPORT FUNDRAISING FOR THE HUDDERSFIELD TOWN FOUNDATION!
The Huddersfield Town Foundation is delighted to announce the most elegant fundraising event of the year – ‘The Foundation Ball’, to raise funds for the Foundation and contribute towards their Early Kick-Off Breakfast Clubs!
The Foundation Ball, supported by Pure Business Group, will take place on Friday 27 September 2019 at The Woodman Inn, Thunderbridge with all supporters and fans invited to attend.
The Town Foundation is the official charity partner of the Club, delivering community initiatives across themes of Education, Health, Sport and Inclusion, as well as the Trust Fund, which operates 41 Breakfast Clubs across Kirklees.
The event seeks to raise funds for contribution to the Foundation’s Early Kick-Off Breakfast Clubs to ensure that the charity can keep afloat this much-needed initiative and continue improving the quality of life for young people in our community, growing their aspirations and achievements.
The Breakfast Club initiative is reaching its seventh year of ensuring children in Kirklees can start their learning day with a healthy and nutritious breakfast.
The Huddersfield Town Foundation relies solely on the generosity of supporters and donors to continue providing breakfasts to over 445,000 children within Kirklees each year.
It costs £140,000 a year to operate this initiative and to stop children going hungry!
Funds raised from ‘The Foundation Ball’ will also contribute to the other programmes within the Huddersfield Town Foundation’s Education, Health, Sport and Inclusion department.
The Huddersfield Town Foundation is counting on the great and good people of Yorkshire to join Chairman Phil Hodgkinson and Director Dean Hoyle who will both be in attendance, with tickets not limited to Huddersfield Town’s sponsors and supporters.
All funds raised at the event will stay within our local community to benefit young people and to continue successfully operating and providing breakfast to hundreds of young children throughout Kirklees.
The Ball will begin at 7pm with arrival drinks, followed by a three-course menu and cheeseboard, entertainment, games and fundraising auctions, with money-can’t-buy prizes donated by the Huddersfield Town players.
On the evening, you can expect to hear from and meet some inspirational beneficiaries of the Town Foundation’s work and learn more about the development of new projects and programmes commencing in September.
There are several ways in which fans can support the event including the opportunity to partner with the Town Foundation and support pre-drinks or entertainment packages. Alternatively, tickets for the event can be purchased for £100 per person.
Lisa Bottomley, Fundraising Coordinator for the Town Foundation, commented:
“Everyone at the Town Foundation is excited to deliver this event.
“There has been strong support for previous events, such as the Big Sleep Out and the Foundation games, and the Ball presents the next step in ensuring that along with Huddersfield Town, we continue to have an impact on those in our community who are in need of support.
“The funds raised at The Huddersfield Town Foundation Ball will specifically contribute to keep the Trust Fund’s, Early Kick-Off Breakfast Clubs, successfully operating.
“We can’t wait for the Foundation Ball, which will certainly be an amazing evening for everyone involved.”
