The red carpet was rolled out for the XIII Butterfly Charity Ball at La Marina Resort to greet our guests in aid of DEBRA, this event was organised by Mary Chambers & Sue Rogers.
The glittering annual event was attended by 164 guests enjoying a Poolside Cava reception. There was a surprise performance by The Costa Blanca Singers who were fabulous with their rendition of ¨Everybody needs Somebody¨ and many other songs which delighted our guests. This was followed by a 3 course meal in The La Marina Restaurant followed by top entertainment from Project Duo.
Tommy Rogers our host, helped raise the amazing amount of 4,628.84€ with the main raffle prize of a Galaxy Samsung Tab A7 Lite won by Rosie Jolly. Many other prizes were won such as hampers, Premier Chef air fryer, Marina Senses Spa & Wellness vouchers and many vouchers donated by various local business and individual donators.
Our auction allowed our guests to bid for vouchers including a stay at one of the three La Marina Camping & Resort sites, Sunset Beach Club, Benalmadena, and Rafaelhotels in Madrid.
