Countdown to Diverse Abilities’ Gala Ball

Diverse Abilities, Dorset’s disability charity, is counting down to its grandest event of the year, the Gala Ball. This year’s ‘Under the Sea’ theme is bound to create a spectacular night and will raise funds throughout the evening to make a difference to children and adults that the charity supports.

The event offers a glittering drinks reception, generously sponsored by Dolphin Shopping Centre, ahead of a night of fine dining, live music, auctions, games, and a DJ which promises to keep everyone dancing until late.

This year’s Gala Ball, held at Lighthouse Poole on Saturday 25 November promises an unforgettable night for all attendees. The glamorous event would not be possible without the support of sponsors: Franses Jewellers, Colten Care, Freo Wellbeing, Dolphin Shopping Centre, and Forelle Estates.

Mariana Swain, events executive at Diverse Abilities, commented: “We extend our heartfelt gratitude to our incredible sponsors, whose unwavering support enables us to create an extraordinary evening. Their generosity not only helps us make a significant impact but also empowers us to raise substantial funds for the invaluable cause of aiding children and adults with disabilities in Dorset.”

The evening also includes other surprise entertainment, sponsored by Colten Care, a live auction, and the opportunity to win great prizes throughout the night.

Mark Aitchison, Chief Executive of Colten Care, said: “We are proud and privileged to support Diverse Abilities and its vital services for children and adults with disabilities and their families. We can’t wait for the Gala Ball and we wish everyone attending a fantastic night. As well as the fun on offer, it is an ideal opportunity to help an amazing charity.  Colten Care is delighted to be playing a part in making this event extra special.”
