Come scare your stomach on Thursday 30 October from 7pm at The Common Room, Devonshire Street, Sheffield. Fright Night is a fantastic and freaky fundraiser in aid of the I Have IIH Foundation and the organisers are delighted to be holding the event at The Common Room with the support of the team there. http://www.common-room.co.uk/
Amazing prizes are on offer for the challengers brave enough to face the "man vs food" triple event which involves hot wings, pumpkin pie and burger (although those less heroic can stop at one of the above). There is a fancy dress competition and a spectacular raffle.
Prizes for the competitions and raffle include 5 group tickets for paintballing courtesy of DeltaforceUK Paintball, football match tickets (both SWFC and SUFC), fruit basket, meat hamper, gig tickets, champagne, Forum Café Bar vouchers, Halloween cake, the list goes on.
Ann Hartley, Communications Officer for the charity said, we know that "Man vs Food" sounds somewhat sexist, but "Person vs Food" doesn't have quite the same ring to it, does it? Obviously, we welcome entrants from either sex and there will be no discrimination! I am ready with my stop watch and clipboard, let the challenges commence!"
Heidi Wilson, Chair of the I Have IIH Foundation said "It's looking like we are going to have such a brilliant evening again, we did something similar last year and it was hilarious, as well as raising much needed funds for us to support people with IIH. So many people are supporting us with prizes this year, which is making a huge difference."
Idiopathic Intracranial Hypertension (IIH) is a neurological condition caused when the body is unable to competently absorb or drain the cerebrospinal fluid. When this takes place the intracranial pressure increases, which then causes debilitating, painful headaches and other symptoms. The I Have IIH Foundation supports people with IIH, advocates for them and raises awareness of this rare condition.
