Media Release: Scandalous tales at epilepsy night out in Glasgow

FORGET the gossip magazines. For sensational stories on Thursday 26 April, come to Epilepsy Scotland’s Glasgow Wags gala dinner in the Grand Central Hotel at 7pm.

Guest speakers for this year’s ‘infamous’ fundraising event include former Rangers director of football Gordon Smith, past Glasgow City Council leader Steven Purcell, sports journalist and TV presenter Alison Walker and Scottish solicitor Ricky Hutchison.

Hosting the ‘It’s a scandal’-themed competition between the four speakers is Radio Forth DJ, columnist and actor, Grant Stott. The 300-strong audience will decide which shocking tales are hilarious enough to win the 15th Wags trophy prize.

Individual tickets to this once-in-a-lifetime occasion cost £65 with table discounts available. Not only will the night flow with wine, gossip, laughs and the chance of a bargain but one lucky person will buy a £10 safe key that opens the door to the latest iPad2 worth over £400, donated by East Kilbride-based IT, firm Clicknetworks.

Chief executive, Lesslie Young, said: “For the record, this is the must-have ticket of the social season. We guarantee an entertaining evening for all newcomers and those many generous people who return year on year to support our work. This is the place to be if you want to hear what makes the headlines.”
