Art auction is part of YMCA Norfolk celebration ball

10 September 2018

YMCA Norfolk is inviting the local community, businesses, young people, staff and volunteers to an Annual Celebration Ball at Sprowston Manor Hotel on Friday September 28.

The black-tie event will run from 7.30pm until midnight and includes a 3-course dinner and music by band Wapscallions.

The Norfolk youth charity is offering those attending the event the opportunity to get involved in a silent auction, which will include art pieces designed by YMCA’s young people.

The pieces of art are related to each young person’s experiences and will include hand-drawn sketches and photography. All proceeds of the evening will go towards supporting vulnerable young people in Norfolk.

The event will also consist of a raffle, dancing, sing-off and speeches from young people, who will share their stories.

YMCA Norfolk’s Chief Executive, Tim Sweeting, said: “We’re really looking forward to showing off the amazing artwork and giving guests the opportunity to buy these one-off pieces, all in aid of a great local charity.

“We know how to party in the YMCA so everyone who comes is sure of a good time but this auction means that guests can leave with a feel-good reminder that will make all the difference to our work.”
