Smile With The Stars Ball - 6th March 2015
Following the enormous success of our first Smile with the Stars Ball in 2012, raising £83,000, we've decided to do it all over again!
- Friday 6th March 2015 at the Centenary Pavilion, Elland Road
Since we launched the charity in 2012, we've donated over £70,000 to our 2 chosen charities - Epilepsy Research and Sudep Action. We've also funded new video telemetry equipment for the Leeds General Infirmary which will help reduce the waiting time for examinations from 2 years to 6 months. These examinations often result in a change in medication leading to a reduction in seizures, and in some cases lead to surgery which can eliminate seizures completely.
To put it simply, a seizure can cause Sudden Unexpected Death in EPILEPSY - eliminate the seizures and the chance of SUDEP is eliminated.
We now want to fund more equipment for the LGI, and create a bigger Lee Johnson Suite to reduce the waiting list even further --our 2nd Ball will help us achieve this objective.
This fantastic evening is the perfect opportunity to support our charity with family, friends and colleagues. The 2012 event was quite simply....amazing!!!
650 guests enjoyed an emotional evening celebrating Lee's life, listened to a personal message from David Cameron, and danced the night away to polished Yorkshire performers The Nightjars - the 2015 event will be even better!!
Tickets are £65 per head, tables of 10 are £650. We'll be producing a glossy programme for the evening providing great opportunities for businesses to advertise. Various sponsorship opportunities are also available - please use the contact form below for more information.

Memories of Lee
"Hi Becky , I haven't got a memory of your brother , but I lost my little brother 16 years ago - he was 27 and I was 5 months pregnant . People say time heals but it doesn't really it still feels like I've had my right arm cut off . If you'd like to talk I would like to get in touch "
