Over 36K raised at Annual Dinner

Cornerstone raised more than £36,000 at its 12th annual dinner at the Ardoe House Hotel.

The Cornerstone annual dinner has raised almost £500,000 since the first event in 2004.

This year’s event was sponsored by BP, Petrofac and CNR and all money raised will be put towards Cornerstone’s Quality of Life programme, which aims to transform the daily lives of local people with disabilities and additional support needs.

Around 200 people attended the dinner and enjoyed entertainment by the topical musical comedy duo, Vic Rodrick and Annie Gunner Logan, who specialise in political parody.

Charity auctioneer Alex Fleming kicked off the fundraising, with guests being invited to snap up more than 30 lots including a private screening of the new Bond film, ‘Spectre’, overnight stays at the Ardoe House and a painting by renowned Scottish artist,. Francis Boag.

Guests from Aberdeen's business community were welcomed by Cornerstone Chief Executive Edel Harris. 

She said:  “The dinner was, once again, a great success and I am delighted that the event raised such a remarkable amount of money through the generosity of our guests.

“I'd like to say a special thanks to our sponsors this year, BP and Petrofac – because of their generosity, every penny raised will make a real difference to the people we support – as well as everyone who continues to support Cornerstone.

“We would like to wholeheartedly thank the Ardoe House Hotel and the staff for hosting our dinner and helping to ensure the evening was a great success.”
