Last tables for 10th annual dinner

Anyone wishing to join us for our 10th annual fundraising dinner is urged to snap up tickets quickly as only a few tables remain for the event at Aberdeen's Marcliffe Hotel on Thursday, April 25.

Celebrating its 10th year in 2013, the Cornerstone annual dinner has raised over £400,000 since the first event in 2004.

The hugely popular black tie event is a firm fixture in the North East social calendar, with all money raised on the evening being used to support children, young people and adults with learning disabilities, physical disabilities, mental health problems and other support needs across Scotland.

Entertainment at this year's event will be provided by the topical musical comedy duo, Vic Rodrick and Annie Gunner Logan, who specialise in political parody.

The last few tables are on sale for £950 for a table of 10, which includes a champagne reception, three course meal, fundraising auction and entertainment. 

This year's dinner is being co-sponsored by BP and Petrofac.

Vanessa Smith, regional corporate relations and fundraising co-ordinator, said: "The annual Cornerstone fundraising dinner has become a very popular event and is getting close to being sold out again for 2013.

"Anyone wishing to come along and enjoy an evening of great entertainment while raising money for a very worthy cause is urged to buy their tickets quickly to avoid disappointment.

"Everyone at Cornerstone would also like to thank the ongoing support of BP and Petrofac.  The help given has enabled us to make this event a huge success and allowed us to raise significant amounts of money to continue our work caring for children and adults throughout Scotland who need our support."

Tim Smith, Vice President for Communications & External Affairs at BP said, "BP has supported Cornerstone since it was founded over thirty years ago. During that time, the charity has made a real and meaningful difference to the lives of many people with disabilities and support needs . We value this long standing partnership and are proud to be able to sponsor the tenth anniversary of this major fundraising event. "

Eleanor Bentley, Vice President, Finance, Petrofac Offshore Projects and Operations said: "We are delighted to be able to support the dinner and to be involved in its landmark tenth year is doubly special. Petrofac has worked closely with Cornerstone over many years and we are well aware of the huge contribution that the dinner has made to providing support for children and adults in need."
