friends or colleagues of 10 or 12. Alternatively singles or
couples will be seated with other groups.
Proceeds from the evening, which also
includes and raffle and charity auction, will be in aid of the
Mayoress’ Community Fund which raises money for local people,
groups and organisations across the Scarborough borough.
Cllr Lynskey said: “The theme for my
mayoral year is partnership and I could not ask for more from the
Rotary Club of Scarborough Cavaliers and Yorkshire Coast College –
it has been a real pleasure to have them on board.
“The students from the college are not just
playing a big part on the night – they have designed the outfits
Sheila and I will be wearing and I can’t wait to see what they look
like. They have also designed the tickets and posters and I am
grateful for all their hard work.
“With fine food, amazing costumes and
fabulous entertainment, this is gearing up to be one of the best
social events of the year and I would urge people to get tickets
and come along.”
Guests will be asked to arrive at the Royal Hotel for 7.15pm,
where they will enjoy a drinks reception and entertainment from
Yorkshire Coast College students before being called to dinner.
