Dear Association Members and Friends
I am pleased to report that arrangements are already in hand for the Annual SPA Ball which, in our 70th year, is at the De Vere Grand Harbour Hotel on Thursday, 11th October and I hope that you will be attending and, preferably, booking a table.
The point of this email, however, is to tell you that our chosen charity this year is the Society of St James, who are locally based and support the homeless, because we feel that as fortunate professionals who earn our living from property we should help those for whom life has not turned out so well. Whilst we will of course warmly welcome whatever draw prizes you are able to give, what we would particularly like is those “money can’t buy" prizes for the Charity Auction. Perhaps you might know a celebrity who could provide special seats to a concert, show or game/match or take them for a round of golf, or maybe someone with a superyacht or whatever. Please therefore wrack your brains and chivvy up your clients and find us something special in order to raise as much as we can for such a worthy cause. Naturally, should you wish it, the donor's details will appear on the programme in the usual way. Please do your very best to make this SPA 70th Anniversary Ball really special.
