launches local charity drive

Published: Wed Jun 02 2010, the leading online travel guide for Marbella has joined activities to support the Rhys Daniel Trust Children's Charity by asking all of its advertisers to donate a gift to the raffle organized at the charities annual Butterfly Ball in the Puente Romano Hotel in Marbella.

The fundraising charity led by Max Clifford himself, has been holding its Butterfly ball for 10 years now in Marbella, and has proved to be a greater success each time, raising more money every year. In 2009 the Max Clifford Celebrity Golf Challenge was one of the biggest events in the Rhys Daniels Trust calendar. 39 golf teams played 2 courses over a 2 day competition, competing for the coveted Rhys & Charly trophy amongst other prizes. The event, as always, finished in style with the sell out Rhys Daniels Trust Butterfly Ball held at the stunning Puente Romano Hotel in Marbella. Over 400 guests were entertained by Stephen Lloyd Morgan, Austin Drage (x-factor 2008) Tee Green and Masquerade and the whole weekend raised and incredible 150 thousand pounds for the Rhys Daniels Trust.

The Rhys Daniels trust fundraiser is a charity which raises money to provide 'home-from-home' accommodation in support of major children's hospitals across the UK. The charity has a very positive attitude to the care and well-being of children and families whose lives are severely affected by serious illness.

This year's event held from the 3rd until the 5th of June is likely to be an even greater success than last year as they are expecting to greet the likes of Chris Eubank, Des O'Connor, Jean-Christophe Novelli, Craig Fairbrass, Bobby Darvo and Max Clifford and the celebrity list is growing every day.

This year is actively supporting the charity by calling its advertisers to ask them to donate gifts for the raffle, and some Marbella restaurants along with Marbella designer Richard Lewis have already eagerly chipped in with vouchers to spent at their establishments.

Apart from finding these great sponsors, is also advertising the charity enthusiastically on its website, featuring the event on its calendar as well as also promoting it on the MarbellaInfo twitter and facebook accounts which attract thousands of visitors a day.

"Of course the event is bound to be a great success like every other year", said client relationship manager Nina Francis, "And it is great to see so many businesses in Marbella putting their strength together to raise as much money for this great charity as they can, even in these times of economic crisis, everyone seems to still have plenty to support charity, which is fantastic".
