It was not only magical, but we had the company of the singing Santa, Izzy Newman. What more could you ask for? A wonderful crowd of members and guests enjoyed what was the Club De Cotxes Classic Mallorca Car Club Christmas party held at the excellent Eagle Restaurant at Golf de Bendinat last Sunday.

A super friendly club for all who own a classic car and for all those that love classic cars also. You can join even if your car is not a classic and everyone is welcomed to the events and rallies held throughout the year. Sadly, the year is coming to an end but to round it off, as they say the Club always hold their Christmas party and this year’s was fun, magical and musical in the guise of Izzy Newman whose energy is second to none. Not only that, the Club’s President Pamela Gardner and her team pulled out all stops.

The venue was superb, the atmosphere buzzed with chats, stories and events to come next year. Drinks, laughter and friends together. The unexpected surprise was Andre Cretian, who appeared and enthralled us all with his magical tricks, walking around the tables showing off cards tricks, disappearing coins and much more. A local and charismatic, funny and talented guy. What a wonderful end of season event. So much different to the many lunches and end of season lunches. We were all treated to drinks, traditional local snacks and all were looking forward to next year, new rallies, car shows and new members joining. That I am sure.

Not only was it a fun event, but Club merchandise was reduced and there were free give away badges and pens. A Christmas treat for sure. The main thrust was not the cars but the fact that the Club supports the fantastic good cause of the Fundacion Allen Graham Charity 4Kidz run by President Rosemary Stone Graham and her team. Sadly, Allen, her husband passed away a few years back but the charity continues to grow helping young people with education, guidance and advice raising funds through their two shops and events so do please check out www.agc4kidz.com for more details. Do not throw away your unwanted items as they could be taken to the shops or even collected. Each euro raised is so important.

Another worthwhile cause and well done to the CCC Club in supporting this Fundacion over the years. Rosemary, Pamela and not least Izzy took to the front of the venue and thanked all who attended. If you missed it, then you missed a great event, bargains, good company and the sounds of Izzy.

Now where did Andre, the magician go? Disappeared!, but if you want something different at your dinner party or event then do contact Andre on info@andrecretian.com . So the Club’s year came to an end. Not only did Andre disappear after saying goodbye, of course, whilst others made their way home but others disappeared to enjoy lunch at the restaurant. For me, a great four hours and I am delighted to be welcomed into the Club for many years.
