Mayors Christmas Masquerade Ball
The Pink Ribbon Foundation were delighted to join the Mayor of Hounslow (Sue Sampson) and guests at her charity Masquerade Christmas Ball on the 9th December. Both the Foundation and Refuge are the beneficiary charities of the Mayors fundraising efforts during 2017-2018 in a campaign that was launched at the Mayors inaugural ball in August 2017.
The Christmas Ball was held at The Clayton Hotel, Chiswick and saw guests enjoy a champagne and canapés reception and three course meal with plenty of live entertainment, raffle and auction. The Pink Ribbon Foundation were delighted to welcome back to the UK Filippo ioco whom the Mayor had been introduced to at #PINKLondon2017 Filippo was invited to the event in order to spread some ‘pink festive’ cheer, with the addition of his infamous #PINKGIRLS who were painted and wore the obligatory masquerade masks. Guests were also very taken with the Human Champagne Tables and burlesque dancers.
The event was a huge success and a great start to the Christmas festivities, with £13,000 being raised and split between the Pink Ribbon Foundation and Refuge. We would like to thank Sue and her amazing team, everyone who attended the event and supported with the raffle and auction.
We look forward to more FUN-draising in 2018.
