Charity Gala Dinner 2023

07 October 2023

You are invited to The Esplanade & Thompson's Charity Gala Dinner.

Now in it's 6th year we are pleased to be able to continue supporting local charities with this annual event, and hope to build upon the £97,470 total raised from the previous years. 

Once again we will be transforming our car showroom here in Cowes into an impressive entertainment venue and cannot wait to welcome you and your friends to our premises.

We are also very grateful to continue our partnership with Robert Thompson of Thompson's Restaurant, who along with his fantastic team will be donating all of their time and the evenings menu.

Your ticket will grant you a welcome drink, 3-Course meal by Robert Thompson, 10 x raffle tickets (£10 value), entry to ‘guess the balloons in the car’ (£5 value), entry to play ‘heads or tails’ (£10 value), access to a live auction with Nick Bonham formerly of Bonhams Auctioneers kindly taking charge of the gavel, casino, disco and other fun entertainment. Ensuring that you will have a night to remember whilst raising money for local causes.

As usual 100% of funds raised from ticket sales and on the night will be shared equally between our 3 chosen charities:
UKSA - Test the water programme, Isle of Wight Sports Foundation and Kissy Puppy – The Sophie Rolf Fund.

On the night we will encourage all our attendees to give generously by bidding on the live auction and purchasing additional raffle tickets – we will be able to accept card and cash payments and donations.
