Following Diamond Rocks support of the charity dinner in aid of the Velindre Cancer Centre, to which they donated a diamond pendant, Diamond Rocks has now stepped forward to help raise funds for Breast Cancer Care. The breast cancer charity ball will be held on Saturday 9th October 2010 at the newly refurbished Grosvenor House Hotel on Park Lane, London. The charity ball is hosted annually by NEXT Retail and will be a black tie event with about 1000 attendees, including CEO’s and other high profile people.

“This year’s event will support our chosen Charity Breast Cancer Care,” said Simon Wolfson, CEO of NEXT Retail. “If you have had the opportunity to attend previously, you will already know how special these occasions can be. As always it will be star studded, full of glamour and great fun. This year we aim to out-do previous fund-raising events, and as such it already promises to be a truly amazing night. We are delighted to announce live performances by Cheryl Cole, Alexandra Burke and Lemar.”

The charity ball programme includes a drinks reception, a sit-down meal, fundraising games, a silent auction, grand auction, tombola and live entertainment. Diamond Rocks have donated two pieces of diamond jewellery, including a black diamond ring and a pear shape loose diamond. Valued at £3,000, the black diamond 18K white gold ring features a 3.0 carat black diamond surrounded by 0.20 carat of white diamonds and is up for the Grand Auction. The pear shape 1.39 carat H SI loose diamond is valued at £5,000 and will be contributed to a diamond themed game to take place during the charity ball.

The Charities & Sponsorship Manager at NEXT said, “Next are so delighted that Diamond Rocks came forward with the offer of not only one but two extremely generous prizes for our Charity Ball in aid of Breast Cancer Care. I am hoping that both of these wonderful donations will help to raise a substantial amount for this very worthy charity.”
