Pink Party V - the best yet!
The fifth installment of the Pink Party event was held on Saturday April 9th 2016 and a great evening was enjoyed by the sell out crowd of 250 people. Once again, the Sitwell Park Golf Club hosted the evening with local mod/ska/rock band Handsome Dan and the Mavericks playing two live sets to a very appreciative audience. With ticket sales and money raised through a raffle and a charity auction on the evening, over £3,100 was raised for the BCRT. This is a new record for fundraising at the annual Pink Party.
