Over 310 students attended The Birmingham JSoc Charity Ball on Sunday 4th March 2012 at the home of Aston Villa Football Club, Villa Park.

The ball was a massive success raising over £8,000 for charity.

The ball committee – Oran Gordon, Talya Stone, Jessica Levine, Tori Kahn, Olivia Martyn, Talisa Ross and Joel Holder chose two extremely worthwhile charities- Rays of Sunshine and ALEH.

A UK-based charity formed in 2004, Rays of Sunshine fulfills the wishes of children who are living with serious or life-limiting illnesses, however impossible this may seem. Furthermore, they help hospitals, hospices and specialist schools to improve their facilities.

ALEH is a charity in Israel providing residential facilities for children with severe physical and cognitive disabilities. They take care of 650 children in Israel with high-level medical and rehabilitative care in four residential amenities.

The ball was a huge success which saw over 310 students enjoying their black tie evening with a cocktail reception; a three course meal catered by Manchester based Robert Cohen, a live band and a D.J. Chair Talya Stone said. “ The ball was a massive success and knowing that the money we raised will go to two amazing charities is so rewarding”
