On the last day of January, www.teamchallenge-company.co.uk hosted the annual CHC Fun Casino Night at the brilliant AECC.

The black and white Vegas themed evening was held over dinner and into the early hours of Sunday morning and included entertainment throughout as we raised money for the excellent charity that is Wings for Warriors. On arrival our guests were greeted with arrival drinks as they walked down the red carpet welcomed by our glamorous showgirls as Rory Raith our photographer captured the moment.

To kick off the evening we welcomed Mark Radcliffe to the stage to say a few words about Wings for Warriors and the incredible work they do for injured servicemen and women. After watching an inspirational video clip our guests were served their starter and asked to donate money as they entered themselves into our Higher or Lower fundraiser.

Once our guest’s tables were cleared of their starters we heard a few words from Regional Director Mark as he said thanks to Angela and Lorraine for all their hard work in bringing this together. As we continued on with Higher or Lower all of our well-dressed guests were asked to guess whether the next card shown on the screen was going to be higher or lower than the card shown previously by placing their hands on their heads or bums. As the crowd slowly diminished we brought the last few people up to the front and asked them to face away from each other as the final card was revealed. Out of almost 200 guests it was Ray who was officially the last man standing and he won himself the fantastic prize of a 16GB Apple MacBook Air!

After the main course was served the French Fling Showgirls from Gypsy Charms performed a jaw dropping routine that enticed the whole room into a silent stare with camera phone in hand. After a huge round of applause for the dancers the AECC staff then brought out the desserts. Once the tables were cleared the second fundraising event of the evening took place, the Tombola. With Angela and Chris Kirk from Wings For Warriors helping to pull out the names from the bucket we got well underway. The incredible selections of prizes were received with excitement by each of our winners.

As the Tombola came to an end we kicked of the relaxed part of the evening as we got underway with our Fun Casino Night. Legacy band was the background music to our night of fun gambling on both roulette and blackjack. During the company team building activities, there were some big wins and even bigger losses as all of our guests took to the tables to try to win the highest amount of fun money they could before the end of the evening. At 12pm we closed the tables and counted out our chips. We had fantastic prizes on offer and it was Christian Daxer who walked away champion of the evening taking away with him a helicopter ride for up to 10 people!

We had an amazing evening at the AECC and raised a brilliant £2145 for Wings For Warriors.

Thanks again to everyone who donated and participated in the evening.

A special thanks to all our winners and of course Angela and Lorraine for putting together such a successful and entertaining evening! We are already planning the next one!
