Ravenwood Hall Hotel to host summer ball in memory of Ben Wragge

Ravenwood Hall Hotel to host summer ball in memory of Ben Wragge

The black tie event will raise money for the Ben Wragge Skate Park – a new skate park to be built once suitable land is found in Ben's honour.

Owner of Ravenwood Hall Hotel, Craig Jarvis, commented “We are delighted to support the local community to raise funds in Ben’s memory. We hope the evening will raise as much money as possible for this very worthy cause.”

Tickets are priced at £49.50 per person and the evening will consist of a four course dinner, raffle and auction. On arrival guests will be greeted with a glass of Prosecco, followed by a four course meal prepared by the Ravenwood Hall chefs. Dinner will be followed by the raffle, auction and then dancing to the music of Savannah Love.

There will be some amazing auction prizes going under the gavel on the night. From a custom made BMX CYRUS bike and a Tony Hawk signed skateboard, to a photo shoot worth nearly £3,000, a painting of a Spitfire signed by the youngest spitfire pilot (and the only one still alive) and a signed limited edition copy of Moriarty by Anthony Horowitz – a must for any Sherlock Holmes fan.  Eddie from Lacey Scott & Knight will be the auctioneer.
