Another successful evening for Show Racism the Red Card Wales and their Xmas themed comedy night!
Show Racism the Red Card Wales hosted their 3rd annual Stand Up Against Racism event at the Marriott Hotel in Cardiff on Saturday 30th November.
Guests received a buck’s fizz upon their arrival, enjoyed Kizzy Crawford’s vocals and had fun in the Photo Booth in the reception before the evening kicked off in style!
Key speeches included Jenine Abdo from Simpson Millar LLP who partnered Show Racism the Red Card for the 2nd year running and Vaughan Gething AM closed the speeches by raising the importance of educating young people on the effects of racism.
A 3-course dinner followed where everyone pulled their crackers and took part in fun festive quiz.
SBX stormed onto the dance floor for a surprise entertainment treat performing top class street dancing, football free-styling and beat boxing that really got the party started. A video of SBX performing at the event can be found HERE
The silent auction was a huge success this year raising £2,200 for the charity and included some amazing prizes such as a signed Gareth Bale boot, Manchester City signed football shirt, VIP tickets to Cardiff City v Liverpool and a signed framed photo with rugby Ball of Wales who were the RBS Champions 2013.
Comedy was supplied by our ever faithful compere Paul James and performances from Nick Revell and Will Franken.
The night ended with a short but sweet disco and everyone went away feeling full of Christmas cheer!
Show Racism the Red Card would like thank everyone who came to the event, donated prizes and sponsored the night. Without you it would not have been possible.
The charity raised nearly £4,500.00 in total and will use this towards educating young people in Wales.
