The Benjamin Gautrey Foundation 6th Annual Dinner
‘A Night at the Movies‘ was the theme for this year’s dinner, inspired by Ben’s favourite films and took place on Saturday 4th February 2017. This spectacular event was once again held at the fabulous Ribby Hall near Blackpool, lending a setting of glamour and elegance for the evening. The event was sold out and guests were welcomed by a great friend of the BGF – Claire Simmo from Liverpool’s Radio City.

We were also fortunate to have guest speaker Max Coates from the Renault Clio Cup who gave a heartfelt account of his amusing memories of Ben at Loughborough and why he has supported the Foundation since the launch.
Throughout the evening guests had the opportunity to purchase a numbered key for a chance to win a beautiful 18ct yellow gold cocktail ring in a raffle rrp £1722. With a glamorous claw set mawi kunzite measuring over 10 carats and enhanced on the shoulders with18 beautiful brilliant cut diamonds, the ring was a magnificent win for the lucky victor who had acquired the correct key to the security box.
