Shelter NI will be holding its biggest ever Gala Night in Belfast on Saturday 16th June with a glamorous vintage extravaganza, headlined by James Huish and his nine piece Michael Buble band. The Grand Ballroom of the Stormont Hotel will be transformed into a music hall hotspot of yesteryear.
Guests are requested to wear their finest vintage clothes of any era or to dress to impress.
It will be a night to remember, hosted by Belfast finest hostess Lady Portia, starting off with a show styled by Gullion Style Photography Events with models showing fashions from the 1920s, 30s and 40s and featuring performances from the Burlesque Belles.
Then James Huish and his Michael Buble tribute band will take to the swinging stage and the dancing will commence with a swing DJ to follow.
Throughout the night raffle tickets will be available to purchase with prizes such as a weekend break for two, a round of golf for four, champagne dinner for two at Cayenne, wine tasting with supper for two and many more.
“The great need for affordable housing to rent or buy here will not be met if it is left to the free market to supply the solution. We have been over dependent on the private market to meet our housing needs recently.
The social housing sector cannot be relied upon to step up because of the austerity regime currently applied by the Westminster government and the priority for social housing programmes afforded by the Stormont Executive. We believe new initiatives are required to boost affordable housing supply and to identify new forms of finance to meet urgent housing need.
The gala night will raise funds for our latest initiative which we are hoping to renovate vacant and derelict housing in partnership with local communities. These projects will also generate work for employed and unemployed people; skilled tradesmen and apprentices and provide affordable housing for individuals and families in housing need.” Tony McQuillan, director at Shelter NI
