WITH warm summer evenings on the way what better way to watch the sun go down than from the back of a pink Cadillac?
One lucky person who goes to the Evening Star Press Ball will have the chance to do just that as the opportunity is up for grabs as a tombola prize.
And two other people will have the chance to get some glamour into their lives by winning two £100 vouchers to spend at Ipswich boutique, Girls Love Roses in South Street.
Along with the Cadillac there will also be a driver so the winner can spend an evening in the lap of luxury and not even have to keep their eyes on the road.
These are just a range of the fabulous tombola prizes on offer at this year's annual Press Ball, which hopes to raise thousands of pounds for people in the county with disabilities.
With a Starry Potter theme, the ball, held at the County Hotel, Copdock, promises to be a magical evening with an auction, tombola, music and a meal.

Now in its seventh year the Press Ball has raised more than £160,000 for Disability Care Enterprise (DCE), a Suffolk charity which helps enhance the lives of people with disabilities.
With the money raised by the Press Ball, hundreds of people have benefited.
Specialist wheelchairs and buggies have been bought along with computers and sensory equipment for both adults and children.
Tickets for the ball, which takes place on June 25, have now sold out but there are still so many ways to help DCE.
This year saw the launch of the Press Ball Fund, which was set up so the whole community could get involved in fundraising.
Let us know about any fundraising or sponsored events you have got going to raise money for DCE and we can give you all the publicity you need to get maximum money.
And of course there is always the Orwell Walk. Taking place on Sunday June 20, we are looking for 20 people to get marching for DCE.
The walk starts from Gainsborough Sports Centre and takes people along the banks of the River Orwell through some of the county's most spectacular countryside. Walkers can choose to walk either 11, 18 or 26 miles.
It can also be done for a charity of your choice.
To register for the walk click on to www.orwellwalk.org.uk or call Norman Haines on 01473 215333.
Donations to the Press Ball fund should be made out to Disability Care Enterprise and sent c/o Geraldine Thompson, Editor's secretary, Evening Star, 30 Lower Brook Street, Ipswich, IP4 1AN.
