Having taken a two-year break from the stage, David Hill returned to Proud Cabaret with his trademark show ‘The David Hill Experience’ on Wednesday 26th April.
David, Founder and Managing Director of Brighton based events business E3, played host to an evening which included stellar performances from Keris Lea, Jenna Hall, Dolly Rocket and topping the bill were Brighton’s biggest girl group, The Sundaes. All the artists gave up their time for free so that the proceeds on the night could go towards The Sussex Beacon.
The night was a sell-out with just under one hundred people who were invited to buy raffle tickets and take part in a silent auction with all the money raised going to the charity.
David also used the evening as an opportunity to launch The Sussex Beacon Corporate Relay which forms part of The Brighton Half Marathon. Four local businesses pledged to enter teams on the night and this raised even more money for the charity.
Speaking about the night David commented ‘I’m thrilled to see so many regulars here after such a long break and some new faces too. The maximum amount ever raised on one of these nights was £2,221.00 so we have well and truly broken the fundraising record this evening with a staggering £3,368.00 raised for The Sussex Beacon’.
The money is being raised as part of the ‘Save The Sussex Beacon’ campaign. The CEO of the charity, Simon Dowe, commented ‘Huge thanks have to go to David and all the people involved with this great night. Not only was it very successful at raising much-needed funds for The Sussex Beacon but it was also an entertaining and fun night out’.
David is planning to organise another show later in the year.
