Filey Golf Club Dinner Dance
First of all I would just like to welcome everyone to our new making memories website; hopefully you will find it improved and easier to navigate than the previous version.
29th July 2016 so our second dinner dance in two years , it was at the Filey golf Club and this year it was in aid of Jason's new wheels and the mnda we had a great line up with a rather good raffle, some great auction prizes and 2 great singers. The night got of to a shaky start as I managed to be late due to ending of in a ditch, however on my arrival I was greeted with a large cheer which was somewhat embarrassing. Nonetheless we carried on and proceeded with a great meal, after the meal I presented a small speech which was performed by my eye gaze computer and quickly followed by a video which is shown at the bottom of this blog. We lighten the mood with a game of heads and tails and the prize was a hamper, this seemed to go down rather well. the raffle was next and did really well and there were a lot of great prizes to be won .Amy Woods did a few songs and Amy is also one of my carers, it was a little strange to see her sing, she was then followed by Sammy Jo who has been on X Factor and made it to judges houses, she was also fabulous. The evening was then ended with dancing and plenty of conversation.
We had a lot of guests from Filey, we were joined by members of the Hull mnda group and also some friends of mine that I had not seen in quite a long time, this helped to make the evening very special and brought back some great memories.
The final count of the figure raised is £2,079. I think this is a fantastic figure and it down to a lot of hard work from a lot of people, Thank you all so very much.
