Gala Dinner 2022: A Review
Monday 13 June 2022
Friday evening, we held our 50th Anniversary Gala Dinner, hosted by Grant Harrold The Royal Butler. We would like to thank everybody who supported the event by attending, bidding on our auction or sending words of support.
The evening consisted of inspirational stories from our award winners, a delicious three-course meal, entertainment from Matt Ryan and The Gershwin Gang along with generous donations throughout the night.
We were also joined by some familiar faces, including Her Royal Highness Princess Katarina, dynamic Debbie McGee, and the talented Tristan Gemmill. Guests enjoyed the opportunity to mingle with BDA Ambassadors, trustees and leaders within the industry of dyslexia.
We want to say a huge congratulations to all our winners and a big thank you to our sponsors too.
