Local group performing at Mayor’s Charity Ball in April

Solihull Editorial 31st Mar, 2024   0

SOLIHULL based Boogaloo Babes, a vintage female singing group, will be performing hits from the 1950’s to the 1970’s and beyond at the Mayor’s Charity Ball.

The Mayor of Solihull will be hosting the ball after a four-year break, with guests enjoying a three-course meal, raffle and auction.

Further entertainment will be provided by a string quintet, for what promises to be a fun-filled evening.

The Boogaloo Babes are three girls from Solihull, with a passion for music and vintage glamour.

Originally inspired by the Andrew’s sisters, they perform a mix of nostalgic and well-known songs UK-wide.

The Charity Ball, on Friday April 19, raises funds for the Mayor’s chosen charities, Marie Curie Hospice, West Midlands and British Heart Foundation,  with all proceeds supporting local people.

Guest speakers will be attending to provide an insight into the work of both charities.

Hazel Carter, who received help from Marie Curie hospice during her late husband’s battle with motor neurone disease, will discuss her poignant memories and how she wrote a book on her experiences of caring for her husband.

The speaker representing British Heart Foundation is Sarbjit ‘Miracle Man’ Singh, who at 42, survived a heart attack thanks to the help of hospital doctors.

Tickets for the ball are priced at £65 and can be purchased from the Mayor’s office, via email on [email protected] or call 0121 704 6023.

The Mayor of Solihull, Councillor Mrs Diana Holl-Allen MBE, said:  “I am looking forward to welcoming guests to the ball next month. It is an excellent opportunity to raise money for a good cause, and these are charities are close to my heart.

“We’re fortunate to have speakers both from Marie Curie and British Heart Foundation in attendance, and I hope that we will be able to generate significant funds from the event.”
