This is the last opportunity to support this year's annual Intellect ICT Industry Charity Ball and raise money for autistic children to help them communicate more effectively.

The event takes place in London on 8 July.

The ball, backed by Computer Weekly and the Worshipful Company of Information Technologists, aims to raise more than £30,000, which will provide an educational centre of excellence for the Treehouse Trust, a London-based charity that works with children with autism, a neurological disorder that affects one in 110 people.

The cash will fund a pilot project using IT to record and analyse the work undertaken with each child, enabling staff to spend more time with the children and ensure that the programmes for each child are tailored for their individual needs.

Several hundred IT professionals, both users and suppliers, will have an evening to remember, in a luxury marquee in the grounds of the Honourable Artillery Company in the heart of the City of London.

The theme for this year is A Night on the Orient Express, with celebrities, dancing, cocktails, a sumptuous dinner, fairground rides, entertainers, fireworks and more, to provide an evening that the IT industry will not forget.

Sponsors for the ball include IBM, Microsoft, Intel, Cable & Wireless, Messagelabs, Anite, Butler Group, Banner and Orient Express Trains and Cruises.

Since its inauguration in 2000 this annual charity ball has raised in excess of £90,000 for various charities. A table this year costs £1,450 plus VAT, although individual bookings are also welcome.
