Celebrate Christmas, have an amazing night and help raise funds for our local Sunflower charity and Youth Cancer Trust

December 18, Bansko, Bulgaria

Come and join us on December 18th 2016 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 disadvantaged people and young persons facing the challenge of terminal 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 local people who need it, whether disadvantaged, disabled, elderly or orphaned and also to young people with terminal illness, giving them a holiday to 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)

“We want to make a difference locally and globally, that’s why we chose Sunflower local charity and Youth Cancer Trust”The Bansko Ball Team

Youth Cancer Trust

Many of us have been touched by the challenges of cancer. By donating to Youth Cancer Trust you’ll be helping young people with terminal cancer to get some respite from their illness and the isolation that they feel by providing a holiday to give them positive and happy experiences.
