This year’s Summer Marquee Ball will be changing both date, and venue. The 2012 Summer Marquee Ball will now be held on Saturday 25th August, at the Raemoir House Hotel.

The Summer Marquee Ball, last year, broke through a fundraising landmark, by raising over a quarter of a million pounds for a number of local charities since it began back in 1998. Last year was one of the most successful events, raising £28,500 for Homestart Deeside.

This years beneficeries are to be Gastrocan. Gastrocan is the only charity raising money specifically for the research into stomach and oesophageal cancer. All funds donated to Gastrocan are used to support local research efforts in NHS Grampain, and the University of Aberdeen, allowing local patients to benefit from the latest new treatments and enable the University of Aberdeen to lead national and international research projects.

Gastrocan’s Laura Tulloch said the charity was delighted to have been chosen.

Anyone wishing to support the ball, by either a donation for the charity, a fine auction or raffle prize, or company branding can contact Logan Sangster or Dawn Law on 01330 824300.

The team would like to thank Mrs Margaret Jaffray and staff at the Banchory Lodge Hotel for all their support over the last few years, and wish the new owners continued success.
