Crawley Down Gala Evening

The CDRA committee would like to thank everyone who attended our very 1st Gala evening at The Haven Centre on Saturday night.

We felt it was a very successful event with many positive comments received on the night and since. 

The Gala team worked very hard to put the event together and we are proud of what was achieved. The venue was transformed into a glamorous room with fabulous entertainment for all. 

During the evening we had entertainment by local artistes including Jodie Foster and Sophie Hale who performed some elegant dance routines, Jane Jones who sang beautifully during the main course and the fabulous Dazzling Divas who got everyone dancing after the meal finished. 

We also gave out just under £3000 in grants to local community groups and raised an eye watering £571 from the raffle.

We would also like to thank all our suppliers for the evening including:

  • Slinkies for the table hire and decorations 
  • Dan & Claire from Creative Sparks for the lighting
  • Rob the DJ for the music
  • Secret Ingredient for the catering
  • The Haven Centre for the venue and the bar
  • The Entertainers - Jodie & Sophie, Jane and the Dazzling Divas

As well as the local business who donated prizes for the raffle including The Haven Centre Sirens, Feel Well Massage, Sarah Fisher photography-, Dal Nonno, Twinkle Tots, Evolve Beauty, Beauty Hut, Kate Creative, Gracie Grooves, British Wildlife Centre, The Curious Pig, The WI, Velvety Ginger, The Co-op, Ben Hulme Boot Camp at Tulleys and Stephens Aerials.
We do hope everyone who attended enjoyed themselves and we are going to see what we can do about hosting a 2nd Annual Gala in 2021 - watch this space!!!
