Guests were treated to some nonstop entertainment which created the perfect fusion between east and west including a Bollywood dance workshop where the Desi Nach Dancers didn’t have to ask twice for people to join them on the dance floor. Next up guests flew west and enjoyed a fabulous performance by Irish Dance troupe Reel Deel featuring Richard Sanderson on the Fiddle & Anita Ryan on Vocals. 80’s soul legend Jacki Graham gave a stunning performance and a spectacular finish by The Jersey Guys, the UK’s leading Frankie Valli and the Four Seasons tribute act, guaranteed that the dance floor was packed from start to finish. DJ Fritz continued the party until the early hours.
The event raised much needed funds for two charities close to the hearts of Denise and Tim. The first is the Rochdale based charity The GEM Appeal who fund research into and find cures for genetic diseases in children. The second charity was the Sharanalyam Orphanage based in India, who takes care of more than 250 orphaned, destitute, mentally challenged, uncared and HIV positive children and adults. It is this second cause, believe it or not, that inspired the theme for this year’s event.
