Start spreading the news - tickets are now on sale for the Saint Catherine’s Hospice Summer Ball.

The annual fundraiser is swapping the East Coast of Yorkshire for the East Coast of America with a New York New York themed evening.

Organisers are making a brand new start of it by holding the event in the Spa’s Grand Hall for the first time.

Jane Richardson, fundraiser at the hospice, said: “As guests arrive we hope our decor will inspire and it will feel as though they have been transported to New York city with its awesome skyline and land marks.

The ball, which is on Saturday, June 8, is being supported by corporate sponsors Adverset Media Solutions, BlueFin Insurance, Lloyd Dowson Accountants and Deep Sea Electronics.

Starting with a drinks reception in the Spa Suncourt, the black tie evening will feature a three course meal in the Grand Hall and music by the seven piece band All Night Long, supported by Spectrum Disco.

Organisers hope the event will raise thousands of pounds for patient care. Tickets are £59.50 and are available from the hospice on (01723) 378406.
