According to Mr. Calvin Esdaille, who is playing the lead role in the planning of the event, explained that his club is happy with the progress of ticket sales, which are going well; and they are expecting a fast pick up in the number of sales, within the next few days.
Tickets he said can be obtained from any member of the club and from Warner’s one stop in Bird Rock.
Esdaille also reminded that “Funds raised will go to our various youth programmes. We have a lot of youth programmes that we do throughout the year and this is where the money would go.”
He also indicated, “Plans are progressing very well. Our Featured Guest Artiste, Singing Francine comes in on Friday, 30th December, 2011 at 11:00pm and as a prelude to the event, she is scheduled to do some radio interviews and other promotional visits.”
Patrons attending the Ball are being offered a packaged deal, said Esdaille. There will be an open bar and finger foods along with musical entertainment. Most patrons look forward to breakfast, which is served at around 4:00am, stated the Rotary representative.
He outlined that the entertainment line up will include 3s Hi Fi, who will get the ball rolling at 11:00pm; then at a 12:15 am the 4Play Band will take over and will alternate with the Hi Fi system. “We will then see Singing Francine who will come on at 2:00am and will do a 45 minute show of all her latest hits”
Esdaille also added “We have door prizes such as a television set sponsored by Courts and other prizes such as jewellery from Glitters.
The Ball which has become the club’s main fundraiser activity is scheduled to take place at the St. Kitts Marriott, starting at 11:00pm on Old Year’s Night, 31st December, 2011.
