Carlisle United Gala Dinner



Posted: July 6th, 2009

On Friday 3 July 2009, some of us were privileged to attend the Carlisle United Celebrity Golf Gala Dinner at the Shepherds Inn.

The night kicked off around 7pm when we had drinks on arrival. We all arrived in our posh frocks and dinner suits; it was amazing how we all scrubbed up so well!

We were then taken to our tables so the night could begin starting with a delicious three-course meal and a few bottles of wine to wash it down. Soon after our meal, an exciting game of stand up bingo took place. Three people ended up being left at the end and were knocked out all on the same number. A tiebreak then determined the winner and they won a weekend break at some plush hotel.

There was also a charity auction with items like signed football shirts, director’s box tickets and two breaks in La Manga plus a lot lot more, so hopefully lots of money was raised.

After a few more drinks the celebs and cabaret began, compared by Biff from Emmerdale who was a great laugh. David then presented the winners from the golf competition that had taken place throughout the day and the night just got better and better!

A special thank you to Carol Milnes from CA Events who did a fabulous job of organising this event and made sure everything went to plan. We didn’t want the night to end so a few of us headed up town to end a brilliant night out!
