Fundraising Dinner and Auction

We would like to remind you that tickets for our Formal Fundraising Dinner and Auction in the Hilton Hotel Belfast on Saturday 16 April 2016 are available and are selling fast. Tickets are priced at £40 and will include a cocktail reception and 4 course meal with a glass of wine followed by an auction. Ms Jo Scott, former pupil and BBC television presenter will be our auctioneer for the evening.

To date we have raised just over £30,000 and hope that this event will help us on our way to meet our £100,000 fundraising target. It promises to be an extremely enjoyable evening and we hope as many of you as possible will join us.

Why not get a group of friends to take a table together: the Class of 19XX or 20XX; the cast of school show ……….; the Friends of Belfast High School past and present; current staff or those from yesteryear; or simply a group of parents/friends who would enjoy an evening out together?
