THE Mayor of South Tyneside is inviting residents to party the night away and help raise funds for good causes.
Coun Ernest Gibson is set to host an evening of cabaret-style entertainment at the Roker Hotel in Sunderland.
The event is in aid of the Mayor’s charity, which is this year raising cash for Cancer Connections in South Shields, St Clare’s Hospice in Jarrow, the Great North Air Ambulance and the Cystic Fibrosis Fund.
Coun Gibson said: “The fabulous team of fundraisers have again come up with a fun way to help raise much-needed money for local charities that myself and the Mayoress hold dear to our hearts.
“People who come along to the Roker Hotel will have a laugh, a boogie, grab some food, and may even win a top prize in the raffle.
“Please come along and make a difference!”
The night is on Thursday, November 7, at the hotel in Roker Terrace, with live music from Pride of South Tyneside Award winners The Waiters. A raffle will also take place on the night to help bolster the funds.
Coun Tracey Dixon, deputy general manager of the hotel and a ward member for Whitburn, said: “Everyone is really looking forward to the cabaret night, which promises to be a great evening in aid of some worthy local charities.
“It could make a wonderful works night out, or even a family get-together.”
The night runs from 7pm until midnight, and tickets, priced £20 including a three-course meal and disco, are available by contacting Julie Cuskin on 424 7256 or e-mailing firstname.lastname@example.org
