Care Sector Fundraising Ball 2019 raises £200,000 rules begin to bite
October 2, 2019
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. Headline supporters for the second-year running were CareTech, the CareTech Foundation and Hallmark Care Homes, with key support from Lawrence Baker, Welltower, Precious Homes, Athena Care, Morgan LaRoche and ihl uk.
Hosted by the original Stig from Top Gear, Perry McCarthy, the event featured a silent and live auction with many prizes and pledges donated by the care sector. Throughout the evening, guests enjoyed an Indian feast with hilarious entertainment from celebrity auctioneer Jonny Gould, comedian Kev Orkian and stunning performances from Glam Slam, who performed songs from Motown, and brilliant dance act FroBacks.
Speakers at the event included founder of the Care Sector Ball and chair of Care England and Hallmark Care Homes Avnish Goyal, Alzheimer’s Society chief executive Jeremy Hughes and chief executive of The Care Workers Charity Richard Muncaster who spoke about the critical work they do and the impact these charities have had.
“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,” said Avnish Goyal.
“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.”
