Awards Ceremony

Aston VillaThe 2014 Birmingham Sports Awards will culminate in a lavish awards ceremony at Aston Villa Football Club on the 18 September 2014. Guests will be welcomed to the evening with a Champagne reception before enjoying a fabulous three course gourmet meal in the main banqueting suite. Following this, the friends and family of the finalists are invited to join the evening to watch the ceremony, where the winner of each category will be announced. A host of sporting celebrities will attend the evening and will present each award alongside the category sponsor.

Cure Leukaemia - The blood cancer charityThe night will raise money for Cure Leukaemia and the Steve Staunton Foundation. Cure Leukaemia helps to bring pioneering drug and transplant treatments to blood cancer patients in the Midlands. The charity part-finances the world-class Centre for Clinical Hematology at QE Hospital Birmingham, to fund life-saving clinical trials to treat terminally ill leukemia patients. To date Cure Leukaemia has helped to treat thousands of patients through leveraging nearly £21m worth of revolutionary drugs and funding crucial research nurses to administer these trials. Through a small game and silent auction which will take place throughout the evening, we plan to raise much needed funds for this truly worthwhile cause.

The Stephen Stauton FoundationThe Steve Staunton Foundation was established by the former Aston Villa, Liverpool and Republic of Ireland footballer and raises much-needed funds for a variety of charitable causes. The organisation’s first Charity Ball raised money for Cystic Fibrosis and St Giles Hospice Walsall and was followed by a charity golfing event in Marbella that raised funds for Children with Cancer. The second annual Charity Ball raised money for the Norman Laud Association and Guide Dogs for the Blind. Steve Staunton is committed to raising funds for local charities and works hard to give something back to the local area he has lived in for nearly 20 years.
