Butterfly Event for Cancer Research 2011
All in aid of charity
Hilary and Julie Anne in our Highland Dress department helped fit out the Kilmarnock Fire Station team in their finest kilt outfits so the guys could look their best at the charity event at Ayr Racecourse on 2nd October.
400 lady guests, many of who had come dressed for the 1920’s Orient Express theme enjoyed some shopping lunch and afternoon tea then watched a brilliant fashion show. At the end of the evening all the guests learned how to perform the Charleston dance to the music of ‘Time of your Life’ Showband. The best part was that the guests raised a fantastic £6,000 which is up on last years total and all of it being fully donated to Cancer Research UK. This brings their total since they began in 2007 to an amazing £160,000.
An extra special well done has to go to Lorna Dempsey, the founder of Butterfly Events who tirelessly organises these events purely voluntarily, as well as working full time.
