HOW do you fancy joining Blackpool-based entertainer Joe Longthorne to celebrate recently being awarded the MBE at a massive Gala Dinner to end his Charity Golf Day in his adopted home town?
It’s Joe’s first fundraiser since receiving his award, and he says: “I wanted to make sure it was on home territory/ as a way of thanking the people of Blackpool and the Fylde for their support and friendship over the years.”
The Joe Longthorne Golf Classic and Gala Charity Dinner takes place on Wednesday, August 29, at Blackpool’s De Vere Village Hotel, and will be raising funds for the Brian House Children’s Hospice.
Each golf team of three will be joined by a celebrity, and among those invited to play are Roy Walker, Stan Boardman, Mick Miller, Bernie Flint and a host of sportsmen.
Sponsorship for each team is £345 which includes three tickets for the gala dinner. Tickets for the four course-dinner without the golf are £45 each.
Entertainment after dinner will include the full Joe Longthorne show.
In conjunction with the organisers (www.celebritydays.co.uk) Duke’s Diary is giving away a table for four at the evening meal at the De Vere Village Hotel.
