Next Ball – 27th January 2024

The eagerly anticipated ‘Emily’s Ball 2024’ will be held at York Racecourse on Saturday January 27th 2024, remaining keen to keep the ball as close to Emily’s birthday as possible (January 30th). Circa 220 guests (depleted by a local COVID outbreak!) attended in 2022, and we are expecting more this time around.

Guests will once again enjoy a welcome drink, quality three course meal, live and silent auctions and top class entertainment in a great venue.

As in previous years, the objective of the ball is to have fun but also to raise as much money as possible for Martin House Children’s Hospice (Registered Charity Number: 517919) who helped look after Emily during her last few days and continue to provide critical care and support to the local community.

The vast majority of the money raised on the night will be via the live auction. We will once again be calling in every favour and contacting every company, sports club and celebrity on the planet for prizes and we hope what we source ourselves will be significant but if you are reading this and you are able to or are interested in sponsoring the evening or donating a prize please let us know via our Contact page.

Martin House is more than happy to verify the event and this can be done by contacting the Fundraising Team on 01937 844569. We also have a Martin House official letter of support which we can present on request.

We will update this page with further details as and when we have them.
