Bolton Wanderers in the Community’s inaugural Charity Gala Dinner has raised £30,000 to support the charity’s non-profit work in the community.
Hosted on Friday 20th October in the 1877 Suite at the Toughsheet Community Stadium and attended by first team manager Ian Evatt, the event was an opportunity to hear from individuals from a variety of backgrounds whose lives have been positively impacted by the work of the Club’s official charity.
Also in attendance were Club Chairman, Sharon Brittan, Club Director, Nick Luckock - who gave a speech on the night - and CEO Neil Hart. Guests also included the Chair of the EFL, Rick Parry and Chair of the FA, Debbie Hewitt.
As well as a delicious four course and entertainment, guests were treated to an insightful Q&A session with Ian Evatt and Sporting Director Chris Markham.
Bolton Wanderers in the Community CEO, Phil Mason said: "Friday was an inspiring evening, where we were able to recognise and celebrate individuals’ success and achievement, alongside raising awareness and vital funds for Bolton Wanderers in the Community.
"We are overwhelmed and immensely thankful to all who attended and made contributions. The £30,000 raised will ensure that we can continue to respond to local need and support some of the most vulnerable members of our community.”
Bolton Wanderers in the Community would like to thank Nationwide Capital Finance for sponsoring the event alongside Statuo, Boxoso and Stress Free Print for providing their services and support for the night.
The Charity Dinner will be back again next year with the date to be confirmed later in the season.
