The year of the “selfie”!!

April 9th, 2014 by admin

2014 seems to be the year of the selfie!  Thousands of supporters nation wide have been snap happy of themselves without make up and kindly donating £1 to CRUK to raise cancer awareness, so much so that we have hit £8 million raised.   Some of our supporters have kindly kept their donation local and donated through our justgiving page, http://www.justgiving.com/Butterfly-Events.  We are currently at £246 raised.

This year at the Butterfly Ball, a few of our tables posted selfies to our Facebook page which were hilarious.  The committee also took a few good ones to join in on the fun.

2014 – the year of the Selfie !! haha

Nikki does London !!

April 9th, 2014 by admin

Caprice, Prestwick was the venue for one of our lovely and mega fit supporters, Nikki Glover, hosting her charity Catwalk evening with Emporium & Street Shoe of Prestwick to raise funds for her London Marathon challenge on Sunday 13th April.  Nikki managed to scoop one of our spaces for this years Marathon and will run in aid of Butterfly Events and Cancer Research UK.   Nikki has been affected directly by cancer, with her lovely husband, Stuart, suffering from skin cancer in 2007 and her Aunt sadly passing away with breast cancer in 2011.  So Nikki is very keen to raise as much as she can for the charity.

60 supporters enjoyed the fabulous evening including dinner, a fabulous fashion show by the 2 local stores, music by Cheeky D Entertainment and a great raffle with lots of brilliant prizes.  After the show both Street Shoe and Emporium were open for our ladies to shop till they dropped!

£566 was raised on the evening which has been added to her growing total for the charity.  There is still time to support Nikki in her challenge.   Virgin Money Giving Address is – http://uk.virginmoneygiving.com/NikkiGlover

Thank you very much to all supporters who came along on the night, to the team from Caprice, Cheeky D, the ladies from Street Shoe & Emporium, our stunning models & to everyone who donated prizes for our raffle.  Your support was very much appreciated by Nikki & Butterfly Events.

We are so proud of you Nikki, GO FOR IT GIRL !! You have trained hard, the worst is past, just enjoy Sunday… Good Luck. xx
