The Charlotte Hartey Foundation held its premier Charity Ball in May at the Lion Quays in Oswestry and is proud to announce that 14,000 was raised during the course of the evening.
The foundation was set up by Charlottes family in her memory after she died tragically at the age of 16 on July 31, 2009. The registered foundation provides local financial resources in the form of gifts to youth clubs, schools and organisations and will fund structured, purposeful projects and ventures helping youths reach their full potential.
The Foundation Ball took over six months of careful planning by the committee members Samantha Roberts, Zerina Mason, Bethan Hartey-Morrow and the Hartey family - Karl, Helen and Tristan - and was enjoyed by over 220 guests, family members, friends, school friends and local businessmen. A big thank you goes out to key sponsors, Lion Quays, Kronospan, Canada Life, Stans Superstore and Applewood Wealth Management for helping make the evening one to remember.
Karl opened the evening with emotional words about his much loved daughter Charlotte and how very much she is missed, as a family member and a friend. Karls speech focused on making dreams come true and offered advice to the guests, particularly Charlottes young friends to follow your dreams and make them happen and hoped one day they would look back on the friendship they had with Charlotte and be able to say that she helped them in achieving their dreams. Karl also said the foundation is keen to support young entrepreneurs in the area and will soon be offering the fortunate applicants support and business mentoring.
