A charity fun casino, sponsored by Solidor, was held at the FIT Show Gala Dinner on Wednesday 17th April and managed to raise an impressive £2,670, thanks to the overwhelming generosity of the guests.
After an unprecedented evening of awards, food and humour from Ed Byrne, guests were given the opportunity to purchase chips and carry out a little Casino Royale style gambling. By the end of the night, the casino had raised £2,670 directly for GM Fundraising, which will help the charity get ever closer to the magical £1million barrier, thanks to Solidor who sponsored the casino.
GM Fundraising has already got their annual golf day in place for June, their Hope 66 cycling epic for September which is supported by Mighton Products and a Christmas Ball for December in their packed charity calendar. Most notable will be their Hope 66 cycling epic down the remnants of the iconic Route 66, in just 14 days from Chicago to Santa Monica and will be one of the biggest challenges yet faced by the charity.
Gary Morton, chairman of GM Fundraising comments: ‘Not only was it an impressive evening on the back of a great, great show, but yet again the people in our industry showed their commitment to GM Fundraising. I’d like to thank all those happy gamblers, along with Gareth Mobley from Solidor who sponsored the casino.’
