Lorem ipsum et cetera

The Mayor’s Ball was a great event and Web Applications had a wonderful night. The evening began with a champagne reception for the VIPs and ended with one of our members winning Ferrero Rocher chocolates, needless to say we heartily enjoyed ourselves.

Commander-In-ChiefAfter everyone seated themselves and the champagne ran out, the Mayor made his entrance with plenty of pomp and circumstance. His procession was very elegant and we enjoyed it especially because it meant dinner was coming. The Mayor’s Chaplain said grace and the starters rolled out. The meal opened to the sound of bagpipes, the wonderful smell of fruit and a special Thank You speech from Mayor Jim McArdle.

Next, during the main course they showed a DVD to promote the charities. One of the local schools put together a reconstruction of the plight that disadvantaged children go through when they are called upon to be a carer for their sibling or parent, which directly related to the supported charities of the evening.

After dinner was a cheese board and Ceilidh band, and those representatives of Web Applications were on their feet dancing. There was an auction nearing the end of the night of local athletic club paraphernalia, including shirts, footballs and golf clubs. A band, The Intervention, performed magnificently and received a great reception. Throughout the night there was an ongoing raffle; prizes ranged from chocolates and teddy bears all the way to DVD players, with a proviso that items be collected after 11pm. Around midnight people started to head home, with full bellies and the knowledge that this charity ball supported Dr. Kershaw’s Hospice and Young Carers. All the proceeds from the night went to these two deserving charities.
