It's coming! MINI Charity Ball Sep 19th 2009 - celebrating 50 years of MINI

Yes folks - . Registration will soon be open for the biggest and best MINI2 Charity Ball to date! Join us to celebrate 50 years of MINI and help raise funds for our two nominated charities, the NSPCC and Brian House Children's Hospice, a local charity nominated by one of our key sponsors Derek Woodman MINI.

In line with the above the theme for M2CB09 will be..... GOLD!

The details are below - please keep an eye on this front page for all breaking news as it happens!

Once again we are looking for event sponsors and event donators and will be chasing (or is that begging? ) again those who helped us raffle and auction some fabulous prizes at M2CB08 !

Date: Saturday September 19 2009
Venue: Barceló Blackpool Imperial Hotel - Blackpool, Northern England
Tickets: Price held at 2008 level! - still only £45 per person
Accommodation which includes breakfast:
For those staying 2 nights £40 per person per night based on 2 people sharing.
For those staying 1 night £42.50per person based on 2 people sharing.
A few single rooms will be available at the above prices. (Supplement of £20 for single guests wishing to use double room). NB. We will have an initial allocation of rooms available at the above prices for a limited period after which they will be released to the general public.
Format: Welcome drinks, dinner, disco, casino, auction/raffle. There will also be a run through some of the finest countryside in England for those who have to have their run fix!
Table Discounts
Book a table for 11 and get the 12th place free!
Friday Night Entertainment
It wouldn't be a MINI2 event unless it was a weekender and who better than our very own minisoopercooper Paul to take on the responsibility of organising the entertainment for Friday evening? He assures us it will be a fun night and probably the most fun we've ever had on a Friday! ooo-er Paul !!

Deposits
To reserve your tickets an initial non-refundable deposit of £20 will be required with the balance payable by September 1st 2009. As this is a charity event ticket refunds will be at the discretion of the Charity Ball team - please bear this in mind when making your reservation.

We are also working in the background to bring you one or two different things as not only is it MINI's 50th birthday but it's the Charity Ball's 5th birthday!

So don't delay - this will be a fabulous, activity-packed weekend. In addition to M2CB09 the Blackpool Illuminations will be taking place over this period, and you will have the option of visiting the Pleasure Beach and maybe going on The Big One at your leisure. Kiss me quick hats will no doubt still be on sale!

Planes Trains and ..... MINI's
Free parking at the hotel included.
Blackpool North train station - is only a 10/15minute walk.
Note for international attendees - We have two airports nearby
Manchester Airport is 50 minutes away.
Blackpool Airport is about 10 minutes away (Yes all you MINI folk from Ireland - get yourselves over!)

The Charity Ball Team:

Shamster - Sham (driver for a change)
Soggy Cornflakes - Bob (taking a back seat for a change)
Minnie Mouse - Jackie
Lorri - Lorraine
Minisoopercooper - Paul (Lewis)
Paul - Paul (Mullett)
Northandy - Andy
KP Kalle - Karl



The Event Sponsors and Donators
Confirmed Event Sponsor and Donator - Derek Woodman MINI
Confirmed Event Sponsor and Donator - Wollaston MINI


Demand for this event is anticipated to be strong and it is possible that we may have to limit ticket numbers - so don't leave it till the last moment!

So - who will love to be by the seaside in September next year? Box office opening soon.........
