April 2016 - Mayor's International Ball

Friday 15th Apr 2016

Normally held in October this year the Mayors Ball was moved to April to be near the end of the Mayoral year. The theme was Darlington International and each of the 38 tables bore the name of a town abroad linked to Darlington through twinning, schools, colleges, sports, music, rotary, business or other associations. Great entertaiment was provided by the Vintage Belles and the band Night Shift and the 5 course meal was enjoyred by all. Darlington College students had done marvelous work on designing posters, and town name decorations for the tables, and their carpentry department made 5 signposts pointing to linked towns abroad. Fund raising for the Mayor's Charities raised £8116 on the evening and a further profit from the event of £715 was added to the fund. A very special evening!
