The Friends of MCM Gatsby Ball
The fourth annual Friends of MCM Ball was a celebration of five years of the College, thanking The Master and Mrs Pick and helping raise monies for the Rohingya Tampoi Refugee School.
Everyone in attendance was clearly in the mood to celebrate as evidenced by the fabulous 1920s’ outfits on show, and with great efforts put in by all to get in the Gatsby mood.
We started the evening with Welcome drinks and photos in the foyer, with the display of Auction items in the ‘speakeasy’ entrance, before entering the ballroom to be welcomed by our dancers from Rapture Studio. Their Charleston themed dance was simply excellent.
With the food being served and the drinks flowing we moved on to the presentation of the parents’ gift to The Master and Mrs Pick. This was followed by a standing ovation, which was a truly fitting moment on this night of thanks.
Some wonderful prizes, including a stay in a Villa in Bali, an Ed Sheeran signed guitar and a microphone signed by Adele were won in the live Auction, with many more amazing prizes secured via the Ballot Bidding Auction. All proceeds will be going to support the Rohingya Tampoi Refugee School. We thank you very much for your support in our efforts.
As we drew closer to the end of the official proceedings a group of parents and friends gave us a high energy dance display choreographed by Rapture Studios. The Friends of Gatsby dancers then filled the dance floor as DJ Carl Hinds played us out until the early hours of the morning.
It was a fantastic evening and fun was had by all. We would like to convey our sincere thanks to all who helped make the night such a resounding success.
