Last Friday night saw many JGBC Members and friends attend a Grand Masked Ball at Javea Golf Club. The event was the “brain child” of our Vice Captain Ferdie and his wife Linda and what a great night it was. As the guests arrived wearing an assortment of masks, they were treated to a welcoming cava and the music of the excellent One Spirit. This was then followed by a super meal and then the fabulous Shamrockers ramped up the volume and once Richard and Dale Potts started doing the Gay Gordon to an Irish jig we knew the night would finish on a high!
The night, in aid of Cancer Care Javea and Help of Denia, raised a quite phenomenal amount of money (still counting) and our thanks go out to our Members, Guests and Sponsors who donated Auction Lots and indeed to all those who then proceeded to buy them.
Our Captain, Keith Hamilton, thanked our wonderful members like Betty, Julie and Annie who helped pull everything together, Brenda and our Sponsors who worked miracles and the amazing Joe and Christine who put so much effort into this event, only to miss the evening through illness. He also thanked Ray Peters from Pure Gold, and his lovely wife Janette, for stepping in at the last minute and running the Auction with aplomb. Keith finished by reminding our Members whether it be 50 cents in the wrong bias box or supporting events like the Masked Ball, you can rest assured that every cent will go to the two charities we are raising funds for this year.
