Oh What a Night
Oh, what a night
Late December, back in ’63
What a very special time for me
As I remember, what a night
OK Ok it was early February but you get my drift.
Oh, yes, it’s
And the feeling’s right
Oh, yes, it’s Ladies’ Night
Oh, what a night (oh, what a night)
I just love to belt out a cheesy tune at any given opportunity.
Thursday saw our Ladies Night
Oganised by our supporter and friend Becky Stevenson of Becky Stevenson Business Solutions. Becky had worked tirelessly to raise awareness and funds for the Ladies Night and it was a huge success. Taking place at Burton Street Foundation we took over the whole of the top floor conference and bar facilities.
We especially enjoyed having the event at Burton Street as it is a charity that supports adults with learning disabilities and does much good for the Sheffield area. Collaboration with other charities is something close to our heart at Daniel Barnett Arts Foundation.
The evening started with our Pop up Shops setting up and getting ready for the ladies that had booked tickets.
We had stalls ranging from Art with a display of Daniels Art work and Local Sheffield Artist Mark Turner who with his unique art work put on a wonderful display. I especially loved the throwbacks to the Wedding Cake and Hendersons buildings being a proud Sheffield lass and of course I bought some cards to reflect this and not forgetting my Greasy Chip Butty homage to my Blades.
There were personalised products from the family team at K Bees and their cakes were to die for.
Natalie from Coco Drop ensured that no one forgot to indulge their sweet tooth as she provided beautifully crafted chocolate pieces that ranged from chocolate bombs for a hot chocolate surprise and hearts to ensure valentines were not forgotten.
The lovely ladies from 29 The Lane ensured we looked amazing in their easy to wear high end fashion products and to compliment the clothes Linda from What Women Want had the accessories and finishing touches that sealed the deal. I bought a lovely statement necklace that I know will stand me in good stead for years to come.
To pamper we had Tropic ambassador, Clare Telford and her little babe in arms who was so well deserved he stole the show many a time. Also to enhance your home and mood our wonderful friend and supporter Sally Arbouin with her Partylite candles.
Jackie Frith had a stunning display of crystals and a wealth of knowledge regarding all things life and business enhancing.
Over 50 woman attended the evening and we look forward to making this an annual occurrence.
The main room had been decorated with colour coordinating balloons and sprinkles on tables to enhance the ambiance the room looked spectacular and background music played to enhance the relaxed vibe.
After a few words from Becky and Elaine Mitchell Empowerment Coach the bar and evening commenced. Burton Street Catering Department provided a fantastic hot and old buffet catering for all tastes with a hot veggie chilli, gluten free and vegan range. The feedback was amazing and hardly a morsel was left.
Around 50 women came to the event and many of them enjoyed a win on the raffle winning prizes ranging from Salon treatments to wine.
Di Barnett our founder was in attendance and spoke about her passion for the charity and why this year is special as it is Daniel’s Anniversary year. The aim of the anniversary year is to raise funds to ensure our work continues. With the hospital art workshops, Gifted Memories, Music in schools and so much more. Also one of the main aims for the year is to raise awareness nationally so the Art Therapy and Treatment Hubs can bring Di’s vision to life.
Becky and Her Team Raised over £500
The total donated to Daniel Barnett Arts Foundation was £520 a wonderful amount and we thank Becky and her team at Burton Street for all their hard work on the night and in preparation too.
