Avanta support Sparks with Summer Race Night at Epsom Racecourse
Serviced office provider, Avanta Managed Offices, are continuing their support of the children’s charity Sparks by sponsoring a ‘silent auction’, held at a Sparks Race Night at Epsom this Summer.
The event, which is to be held on 1st July, is expected to draw in over 16,000 race-goers who will not only get to participate in the thrill of the races, but will then get the chance to enjoy the Simply Red concert that follows.
The event will help to raise funds for Sparks’ essential research into paediatric medicine.
David Alberto, Avanta’s managing director, commented:
“Sparks supports some of the most important medical research being undertaken today into childhood illnesses and so we are proud to continue our support of their activities during 2010.”
He added: “We recently helped them raise ┬ú6,500 at the Avanta Rugby Legends dinner in London, and despite the challenging economic climate, I fully expect the Sparks Summer Race Night to be exceptionally well supported and provide crucial funds for an exceedingly worthwhile charity.”
Paul Connew, Sparks Director of Communications, said:
“We’re delighted that Avanta have come aboard for the Summer Race Night at Epsom. It continues the wonderful tradition of generous support and a racing connection Sparks has come to appreciate so much from our fantastic friends at Avanta.”
In addition to funds raised on the evening, Sparks has also been chosen as the benefitting charity of the Epsom Derby Festival on June 4th and 5th this year.
