On Friday 25 September 2015 young professionals from Exeter and the surrounding area attended an Autumn Fundraising Ball in aid of the Devon Air Ambulance Trust.
The black tie event was hosted by the Exeter Young Business Club ("XYBC") at the Exeter Golf and Country Club. Attendees were treated to a welcome glass of bubbly, a 3-course evening meal, a charity casino and a disco.
The event was supported by local law firm Ashfords LLP, recruitment agency Cathedral Appointments, event and DJ company Your Big Event Ltd and mobile casino provider, Casino Select.
XYBC was set up by junior employees of the law firm Ashfords LLP over 10 years ago and has been successfully running events ever since. The club is aimed at promoting networking at junior levels with the majority of its members being young professionals in the first 10 years of their careers.
Kathy Cracknell of Ashfords LLP who helped organise the event commented that: "The evening was a great success and raised over £200 for the Devon Air Ambulance Trust. Plans are now firmly in place for our next event which we hope will be equally well supported."
