Tomorrow Saturday 25th September, Aberdeen Exhibition and Conference Centre (AECC) will celebrate the start of its 25th year in business with a charity dinner dance. Over 600 people will come together to celebrate this important occasion with the aim of giving something back to the local community while remembering AECC’s history.
Brian Horsburgh, AECC Managing Director said, “AECC are thrilled to be celebrating 25 years in business. What better way to mark the occasion than by bringing together our clients, suppliers, supporters and business partners for a fantastic charity dinner dance.”
To coincide with the 25th anniversary year the AECC’s venue team aim to raise £25,000 for CLAN (Cancer Link Aberdeen and North). Duncan Charles, Fundraising Co-ordinator at CLAN said, “We were delighted when we heard that AECC wanted to share their celebration of 25 years of business in Aberdeen with CLAN, their local cancer support centre. CLAN had not long opened their doors when the AECC held their first event, so it really feels fitting to be with them to celebrate their 25th birthday. AECC have been extremely generous in their support of CLAN for many years now and we can’t wait for what will be a great evening of fun and fundraising on Saturday!”
The entertainment for the evening will be Olly Murs who will perform his recent number one single, ‘Please don’t let me go’ along with a variety of other songs. Also appearing, and adding a Scottish twist to the night, are The Dangleberries – a band who add bagpipe influences to ‘rock’ music with a unique blend of vocals, drums guitars and bagpipes. The evening will also include a disco, charity auction and raffle, along with a Scottish themed dinner to ensure all attendees have a fantastic evening.
