Raising money and awareness for MND Association for Gavin Fox with a Charity Football Game and Music Event

by Ste Chesters in

This Crowd Funder has been set up to kick start the fundraising for MND Association. The £3000 target raised from this Crowd Funder will raise the first £1500 for MND Association before the event starts. The remaining £1500 is being used to cover the costs of the Football Game and Event that will take place from 2pm until 11pm on 18th May.

The aim of the event is to gather as many people as possible for the Football Game (Kick-off 2pm) and stay until the event ends at 11pm. The longer people attend the more people will spend on the bar and food, with profits going direct to MND Association. The event will be aimed at not only Gavins friends and family, but also the locals. Entry will be £10 for all football players and attendees. Children will be free.  

The more people that attend, the more awareness that is raised for Motor Neuron Disease.

MND Association is chosen charity by Gavin Fox, whom was diagnosed in November 2018 with MND.

We are asking everyone who knows or has ever met Gavin to come and support the event. Whether from school, work, or socially. The more, the merrier. The bigger the support, the bigger the awareness, and the bigger the profits for charity.

Even if you don't know Gavin and want to enjoy all the event is offering (see below), come and join the festivities. It's open to everyone.

So, we're asking you to dig as deep as you can to make this event a magical occasion not only for MND Association, but for Gavin also.

Foxys Stars Festival is a charity fundraising football game, and music event to raise awareness of Motor Neurone Disease (MND).

Date: 18th May 2018
Location: Rhydymwyn Football Club
Donation Entry: £10 + Donation on the gate

>>> 4pm until 11pm <<<<
Organised by the crew of Audio Farm, the event will take place from 4pm until 11pm. An outdoor stage in a Geo Dome Tent (so don’t worry if it rains). The music will consist of Live Funk, Acoustic, Jazz and Folk music, with DJs in-between (Music TBC). There will be food on site, a bar open during the game and afterwards. Raffles and auctions, children's entertainment, and even a massage tent to soothe those old unused muscles after the football game! All decorated with festival decor!

Costs are as follows:
- Speakers, staging, tech = £300
- Lighting and Festoon = £150
- Bands expenses = £250
- Geodome Tent = £100
- Outdoor Bar Tent = £100
- Massage Yurt = £100
- Fire Perfomer Expenses = £150
- Childrens activities, other performers and Misc Expenses = £350
= £1500

Any donations surplus to the £1500 costs, including the money raised on the day will be donated directly to MND association. So if we hit the £3000 target, we would have already raised £1450 for MND Association.

Let’s all come together and beat MND.
