Television Doctor To Host Charity Event With Very Special Guests

An award-winning television doctor is to host an exciting charity gala dinner and concert at Cheltenham Racecourse in aid of Action Medical Research. Dr Dawn Harper is inviting everyone along to her ‘White Summer Party’ which will see some very special musical guests attending.

Taking place on Saturday, July 1, The Overtones will be providing the soundtrack for the event and it will be their first visit to the racecourse. Dr Dawn, known to millions for treating an array of interesting conditions on Channel 4’s ‘Embarrassing Bodies’, is staging the party to raise funds for Action Medical Research.

Filled with glitz and glamour, there will be a Champagne reception and a three-course meal. This will be followed by The Overtones taking to the stage to entertain the crowds with their talents.

The Overtones first took the charts by storm back in 2010 with their hit album ‘Good Ol’ Fashioned Love’ and have followed it up with four more hit albums. The five-piece’s pop/soul/doo-wop style has earned them a legion of fans and has seen them perform original songs that they have written, along with covers of classics such as ‘Saturday Night At The Movies’ and ‘Can’t Take My Eyes Off You’.

Dr Dawn said: “We are really excited that The Overtones have agreed to do their first ever show in Cheltenham to support what we hope will be the most glamorous event in the Cotswold calendar. Join us for a champagne reception, a three-course meal with wine, and a very special performance from the band.”

Action Medical Research helps to fund research into the complications of pregnancy and prematurity and the charity is very close to Dr Dawn’s heart. Two of Dawn’s three children were born prematurely and she is all too aware that it is previous research that has meant they have been able to grow up as healthy young adults who are now both at university.

The work of Action is far reaching and helps funding in many areas – they were integral in the development of the polio vaccine for example. They are also helping to fund research into finding a cure for Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy, a 100 per cent fatal genetic disease which kills boys in their late teens and early 20s. Lee Moulson, Regional Head of Sales at Cheltenham Racecourse, added: “We are so pleased that Cheltenham Racecourse is able to be a part of this event and help generate some much-needed funds for such a good cause. Dr Dawn has planned a fantastic event and The Overtones are going to put on an amazing show for guests. We hope that everyone gets behind the event and helps to raise as much money as possible.”
