The champagne was flowing at a glitz and glamour fundraiser in Monkton for Breast Cancer Care.
More than 20 women attended the event, which was organised by Debbie Galbraith, who held the event at her home.
“It was a real success,” said Debbie. “Everybody thoroughly enjoyed it and say they can’t wait for next year.”
This is the second time she has hosted the fundraising event, which this year raised £400.
Money raised was also given to Honiton-based charity See the Future, which was set up to raise money to fund research into conditions that can cause devastating sight loss.
Guests enjoyed glasses of champagne and delicious canapés as well as live music.
There was also a raffle with a selection of prizes up for grabs, which were donated by local businesses.
Preparations are under way for next year’s event and Debbie is hoping to boost numbers to 30.
She has thanked all the businesses that supported the event and donated raffle prizes, and to everyone that attended and gave so generously.
Debbie added: “It is wonderful that there are so many generous people that support something like this.”
