Under The Hammer

There has always been a buzz surrounding the Fairfield County Annual Charity Ball and this year is no exception. Celebrating its tenth anniversary, the organisers have really pushed the boat out. They have decided to run an auction as part of the evening’s entertainment to raise additional funds for the local hospital.


A game for 13-15 key players plus The Organiser

This game can be played by up to 60 people

Rumours have been circulating that a specially commissioned sculpture by award-winning local artist Connie Banks will be up for auction. With her growing reputation in the art world, the sculpture could be worth a fortune in the future.

As always, the Annual Charity Ball has brought together the great and the good of affluent Fairfield County. Local business people, politicians and well-heeled citizens secured their tickets to this coveted event well in advance.

The Ball is in full swing and Jack Jackson, the head of the Charity Ball Committee is very pleased with the way things are going. Everybody seems to be having a good time and the extravagant decorations have gone down a storm.

The auction will be starting in about half an hour. Jack can’t wait, he managed to persuade TV celebrity and antique specialist Victor Haimes to act as auctioneer. The moment Victor steps out on stage will be Jack’s moment of glory – he will have organised the best Charity Ball Fairfield County has ever seen.

Jack’s certainly right about one thing, it will be a night Fairfield County will never forget, but for all the wrong reasons…..
