Shaken & Stirred - Influential Brand Profiling and Positioning

A gem of an evening celebrating 40 years supporting children with cancer

These days anything can be made cooler by slapping the term “vintage” to it but the upcoming Ruby Ball promises to be a gem of a night like no other when guests will feel like they have truly stepped back in time.

The opulent event on May 18 which is hosted by Northern Ireland Cancer Fund for Children and sponsored by leading community retailers EUROSPAR and VIVOXTRA will allow guests to see the Culloden Estate as they never have before.

After a sumptuous meal in the Stuart Suite, guests can make their way into a vintage outdoor marquee to enjoy top class entertainment, while joining the charity in celebrating 40 years supporting local children with cancer and their families.
