A great night was had by all at the recent charity event Bramham Ball raising funds for some amazing local causes. The crowd were unbelievable, dancing long into the wee small hours. The night also featured some other fab entertainment including mind-boggling magic and there was even a local celebrity (see if you can spot them!). We had such a ball that we’ll be back to do it all again next year, so get your dancing shoes ready and we’ll see you there.
With thanks to everyone involved in putting on such a great event, and to Pixrich Photography who captured the evening perfectly.
“We booked Func on the Rocks for Bramham Ball this July, raising funds for local charities. They surpassed all expectations and were one of the major reasons why the Ball was so successful. Their unbounded energy and enthusiasm and their ability to keep the dance floor full and buzzing all night meant we had no hesitation in booking them immediately for next year’s Ball. One of our guests booked them soon afterwards for a Birthday party and we can’t wait to hear them again. Great guys, great musicians, great choice of songs = a great night enjoyed by all!” - Nick Hall, Bramham Ball 2013
We’re delighted to share with you a great video from last year’s James Bond 007 themed charity ball for Bethany’s Smile, a local charity fronted by an inspirational young lady raising money for sick children.
We know so much hard work went into putting the event together, and it was all worth it because they raised an amazing amount of money for children with life threatening and life limiting illnesses. Click here to find out more about the story of Bethany’s Smile.
Keep up the great work, we hope to be back there again next year!
