The second annual Care Sector Fundraising Ball has raised £200,000 for the Alzheimer’s Society and The Care Workers Charity.
More than 500 people attended the glittering fundraising event at the Grosvenor House Hotel in Mayfair on Saturday 28th September.
Founder of the Care Sector Ball and Chair of Care England and Hallmark Care Homes, Avnish Goyal, said: “As well as raising such a significant amount of money, the event achieved its goal of raising awareness of the essential work of the Alzheimer’s Society and The Care Workers Charity.
“I believe that it is also going some way towards uniting all parts of the sector, including operators, suppliers, as well trade associations, most of which were represented on the night. It is very exciting to see how many people are already asking to be involved next year.”
Throughout the evening, guests also enjoyed a four-course dinner, with entertainment from celebrity auctioneer Jonny Gould and comedian Kev Orkian and performances from Glam Slam, who performed songs from Motown, and dance act FroBacks.
Speakers at the event included Avnish, as well as chief executive at the Alzheimer’s Society Jeremy Hughes and CEO of The Care Workers Charity Richard Muncaster, who spoke about the critical work they do and the impact these charities have had.
Next year’s Care Sector Ball will be on Saturday 26th September. Places are already going fast so please contact firstname.lastname@example.org to sponsor a table now.
