Evel Knievel was joined by Elvis, Saturday Night Fever and the stars of ABBA at Duerr’s charity ball held on 17th November 2012 . The theme for the annual event held by the jam makers was Marma Mia and partygoers got into the spirit by donning their favourite 70s costumes to raise money for a cause close to the company’s heart.
Guests were welcomed with a champagne – and Tequila Sunrise – reception, a retro-themed three course meal complete with 70s favourite, mint matchsticks and an auction packed filled with once-in-a-lifetime experiences including VIP tickets to X Factor final.
The ball, held at The Point, raised £25,000 for Place2Be. The money will go towards the cost of providing essential in-school counselling services to vulnerable children nationwide.
Duerr’s has now raised more than £525,000 for charities since 2000.
