MFC Foundation’s Ladies Day raised more than £3,300 this past weekend, thanks to the generosity of our guests.
The event, which took place on Saturday afternoon in the Riverside Suite at the stadium, was the Foundation’s second independent Ladies Day unconnected to a first-team match.
Given last years’ resounding success, we were delighted to welcome even more guests to our wonderful occasion, which raised valuable funds for our community programmes.
Guests arrived at the stadium just before 12 noon to a glass of fizz on arrival, before being given the opportunity to peruse the specialist stalls we hosted around the edge of the room.
Stalls included a women’s fashion line, fine jewellery, a summer gin collection, and Partylite Candles.
With the ladies then finding their tables for the afternoon, we were pleased to welcome Natasha Day, Senior Manager at The Body Shop at Home, who gave two fabulous make-up tutorials either side of afternoon tea.
As well as the demonstrations, the ladies were given the opportunity to purchase items from the Body Shop at Home stall, with 10% of all on-the-day profits being donated to the Foundation, as well as the proceeds of the raffle Natasha hosted.
The day rounded off with an envelope draw, giving our guests the chance to win some fantastic prizes such as a Michael Kors handbag, kindly donated by Psyche, and a bottle of Lanson Pink Champagne, signed by Middlesbrough FC Chairman Steve Gibson.
MFC Foundation’s Business Development Manager, Ann-Marie Anderson said: “On behalf of the Foundation, I’d like to personally thank everyone who attended our second annual Ladies Day this weekend.
“It was wonderful to have so many fantastic women join us and I’m thrilled with the feedback we’ve received. The generosity shown on the day will support some of Teesside’s most vulnerable adults and children, inspiring hope and raising aspirations in order to change lives.”
