The popular event, now in its seventh year, features music on arrival from Manhattan Jazz, with Audio Tracer featuring as the main band.

Ball-goers can tuck into a three-course meal while this year’s raffle features a surprise twist.

Auction lots you can bid for include a day’s workshop with stained glass artist Janet Fraser, a wine tree made by Hinderwell-based blacksmith Katie Ventress and an engine driver experience at North Bay, Scarborough.

Auctioneer for the night will be Robert Smith.

The ball raises money for three charities – Saint Catherine’s Hospice, Butterwick Hospice and Zoe’s Place.

Lucy Mothersdale, the main organiser who set up White Lily in memory of her late parents, said: “The support we receive is overwhelming and Emma, the White Lily team and I are eternally grateful.

“The ball wouldn’t roll without the support from our local community.
