The Bansko Ball

We've Helped
Local Children

Come and join us on December 18th 2017 for a wonderful evening of good food, music, dancing and lots of prizes!

Glam it up at the Bansko Winter Charity Ball in the luxurious and well known Lucky Bansko 5 Star Aparthotel, Bansko, Bulgaria.

Bringing together residents, holidaymakers, apartment owners, local authorities and local and national businesses to welcome the holiday season, to have fun, to celebrate together, and to make a real difference to the lives of local children with disabilities and women facing the challenge of breast cancer.

The Bansko Winter Ball is a not-for-profit event created to bring our communities together, to make a difference to the lives of women with Breast Cancer and also to local disadvantaged children whose lives are enriched by the effort of a local charity to play, experience and enjoy activities that would normally be impossible or unavailable to them.

Come and join us for an evening of fine dining, music, dancing, and lots of raffle prizes to be won on the night.

A great excuse for the ladies to glam it up in style (the men can dress up too)

the Charities

We’re raising money for three amazing charities, two local, one global, here’s how you can help…

Breast Cancer Now

Many of us have been touched by the challenges of cancer. By donating to breast cancer you’ll be helping to push research forward and, who knows, one day there won’t be any need to raise funds, when a cure has been found and cancer of all types becomes a page in the history books.

For more information visit: http://breastcancernow.org/

Ortosia & PeriVolas

We’re keen to support local charities, to see first hand the benefit of the money, what it buys and who it helps. Elena Dobreva, one of our Bansko Ball event organisers, works with underprivileged children and children with disabilities from the Bansko area to help them gain life experiences which in turn help them communicate better with the world. Your donations and ticket money go directly to the source, to buy these kids outings and much needed equipment.

Thanks to CAMRA for their kind donantion

Screen Shot 2015-12-02 at 12.17.53One of our main goals was to buy a specialist saddle to give these kids the opportunity to learn to ride. With special requirements the saddle costs 500Lv (just over £200) – Well thanks to Ian Holbrook’s Friday Night Pub People,’ his family, friends and the good people at CAMRA in Chelmsford, we can go ahead and order it! – Ian’s efforts raised 500Lv to buy the saddle and make a big difference to the kids. Thanks guys, nice job.
