The Hope for Hollie campaign will be hoping for some charity Summer Lovin’ at their 6th annual charity ball on May 10.
The ball, which has grown in popularity since it started, will return to the Doubletree by Hilton, StadiumMK.
This year marks seven years since Hollie Carter, now aged 8 was diagnosed with the extremely rare and fatal condition Niemann Pick Type C, which affects only 800 people worldwide.
Three of these live in Milton Keynes and in time will suffer progressive neurological decline and childhood dementia with children rarely living to be teenagers.
This year’s ball will have a 50’s Grease theme and is supported by RGS Music Group Doubletree by Hilton, Murrays the Printers and MKFM.
Guests will be treated to live music, a drinks reception, three course meal, live entertainment, charity auction, disco and much more.
All money raised will help Hope for Hollie continue supporting the work of Niemann Pick UK, a charity that provides vital specialist services to affected families and facilitates research into the disease.
Hope for Hollie Founder and Hollie’s mum Helen said: “This year we are excited about returning to the ballroom at StadiumMK, the home of our first three balls. Each year our balls have received such wonderful feedback and the campaign now has a strong network of supporters. The Milton Keynes community continues to provide great support to our family.
“Hollie is reaching milestones we never expected to see. She is growing into a bright bubbly young lady but needs a lot of extra support. We cannot be complacent about this disease, Hollie is showing some classic symptoms of disease onset but we try not to dwell on this. We focus on the beautiful bright spirited young girl who continues to show such courage and determination.
“We are determined to do all we can to try and give Hollie the best chance possible of a future. Since 2008 the Hope for Hollie campaign has raised a staggering £150,000 in support of Niemann Pick UK. This has made a huge difference to the lives of those fighting this devastating disease and through funding research gives hope for the future.”
Tickets for this year’s Hollie’s Summer Lovin’ Ball are £58 per person. For more information or to book please call Dana on 07952 633195, or email firstname.lastname@example.org
