Plans for Duel of Ages next year
The ever popular Duel of Ages hosted by seniors charity Age Concern is already being planned for next year, although organisers are keeping the entertainment line-up under wraps.
The group took advantage of renovations at the Hamilton Princess Hotel to hold the fundraiser in the plush Trudeau Ballroom, with organisers reporting “significant funds raised”.
British Airways contributed the top prize, with Keisha Burgess-Davis was the lucky bidder of two round-trip tickets to London. Marianne Wilcox, airport manager for BA, was on hand to present the tickets, saying the company prided itself on supporting the community.
One hundred twenty guests attended and enjoyed performances by Tony Bari, Taylor Rankin, with friends, and the Working Title Band.
Claudette Fleming, the executive director of Age Concern, highlighted its role in improving the quality of life of older adults in Bermuda since 1978.
“In our Duel of the Ages event, all the guests were part of this legacy and enjoyed an array of musical entertainment while getting to know Age Concern.”
