So, what is Black & Red..?
The Black and Red Ball is the pinnacle event of The Lauren Currie Twilight Foundation calendar and it has now become one of the largest awareness events in the UK for vasculitis.
B&R has helped raise nearly 500k for the charity over the last five years. Having hosted a variety of acts with Francine Lewis, Ruth Lorenzo, Steve Hewlett and Shayne Ward performing over the years, the event is a tribute to Lauren and her love of music and entertainment.
The Ball, with it’s name linked into the colours of the charity, raises a huge amount of money. In 2015, Shayne Ward’s association with Black & Red raised a staggering £27k gross from ticket and auction income and supported an amazing awareness PR campaign valued at over 50k in advertising terms. The proceeds from Black & Red goes to fund research, public awareness and patient support services and has helped keep the new respite cabin operational in the last three years.
Black & Red is a great night of entertainment and continues to grow each year. Who could possibly fill the headline spot in 2016? This year aims to have even more entertainment and energy than 2015 with a band that will deliver number One hit after hit.
Who is it? You better buy a ticket and find out.
