On Thursday 15 October 2015, we celebrated Create’s 12th anniversary with an exclusive black tie Gala Dinner at Mosimann’s, Anton Mosimann’s stunning private dining club in Belgravia to raise vital funds for our work.
Following a Champagne reception, our supporters enjoyed a six-course dinner with wine, an auction by Colin Sheaf (Chairman of Bonhams UK) and a raffle. By auctioning and raffling exclusive lots and collector items, including a painting kindly donated by one of our Patrons, Royal Academician Ken Howard, we raised an amazing £41,204!
These funds will enable us to continue providing life changing creative programmes with vulnerable participants. Young carers will have the opportunity to access dance and drama workshops, children in hospitals and hospices will benefit from fun interactive music workshops, older people in carehomes will be able to create music and art together, and we will deliver many more creative arts workshops across the next year.
We would like to thank Mosimann’s for hosting the event, Colin Sheaf and his wife Annie for conducting the auction, and all those organisations and individuals who provided an item for the auction or raffle, bought a table, purchased raffle tickets, bid or made a donation. The proceeds of the Gala will enable us to make a real difference to the lives of some of the most disadvantaged and vulnerable people in our society over the coming months.
