Our client, Dreams Come True wanted to host a sophisticated charity gala with a delicious three course meal in the classy Grand De Vere Connaught Rooms in order to help raise money to make it possible for more dreams to become a reality.
Dreams Come True are a national children’s charity that helps to enrich the lives of those living with serious medical conditions. The charity works tirelessly to help the dreams of those children become a reality. Our client wanted the theme event to be high profile and enjoyable, so we made sure we brought their vision to life!
To show our appreciation for this charities hard work and commitment to help the less fortunate, ATM Events sponsored the Dreams Come True Charity Gala, providing all personalised table centres, lighting, audio and visual and classy entertainment including, three casino tables and some fun games such as hoopla and skull smasher.
The table centres perfectly complimented the venue as they embodied the same allure and sophistication of the Grand Connaught Rooms, perfectly creating that high profile atmosphere. Additionally the entertainment provided was a perfect choice for the attendees as they very much enjoyed beating the odds and placing their bets on blackjack, roulette and the wheel of fortune.
The Charity Gala kicked off with a champagne reception where all the guests had a chance to connect with one another and share a few laughs. Once the reception came towards an end the guests were ushered into the grand dining hall where they were greeted by the evenings host and the CEO of the charity.
Once the speeches had been made and a three course meal consisting of a salmon starter, beef main and three chocolate dessert was served with small intervals in-between each course. This allowed for addresses to be made by guests such as Jennie Bond and HRH Princess Michael of Kent.
Once the final course had been enjoyed, the auction took place where attendees had a chance to bag themselves some amazing prizes such as trips abroad, once in a life time experiences and hospitality packages with all proceeds going to charity.
As the Charity Gala came to an end, the guests were entertained by the amazing confusionist Sean Alexander, who performed some mind boggling tricks with a fabulous sense of humour and professionalism. The guests then had their chance to try their luck on the casino tables and fun stalls where they had chance to exchange fun money for casino chips and possibly win a bottle of champagne.
Overall the charity gala was a great success and client’s expectations were exceeded as was that of the attendees.
