Saturday 20th May saw our most glamorous and luxurious fundraising event, The Ambassadors’ Ball, take place at the Hyatt Regency London – The Churchill in Portman Square.
Guests from around the world were greeted by the Trustees of Kids for Kids and welcomed to a champagne reception, sponsored by Moet & Chandon in the library, where our wonderful magician, Matthew entertained them. A highlight of our Ambassadors’ Ball is the lavish dinner of sensational food prepared by the chefs at The Churchill, served with wine donated by IDS, sponsors of the Ball. There were fun opportunities to win prizes throughout the evening, with table auctions of cute cuddly toys, a chance to buy a key that would unlock the box to a £400 magnum of champagne donated by Beverley Wheeler, and, the highlight was the Silent and Grand Auctions, with the incredible John Bly. There were money-can’t-buy prizes – including a holiday in Phuket, Thailand and an Elliott Daly’s Signed England Rugby Shirt. We’d like to say a special thank you to our event sponsors, IDS, for their wonderful support.
We are delighted to announce that the Ball has so far made a grand total of £19,000; with just a thousand pounds to go to reach our target to fund a kindergarten, we are delighted. If you would like to help us cross the finish line, please donate referencing the Ball with your donation this week. Below are some of the wonderful photographs taken by our Professional Photographer, Antonia Pena, to catch a glimpse of the fun and frolicks. You can purchase copies of these photographs on Antonia’s website https://goo.gl/02Hf62 using the password AMBASSADOR (all capital letters) – and 50% of the profits will be donated to Kids for Kids.
