Last night we held a Gala Night at Television centre as a warm up to the main event the BBC Children in Need Telethon and we raised a staggering £50,000!
Thanks to Sue and the team who put it all together and to all the One Workplace and BBC Technology supply partners who generously supported us on the nigh
On Thursday 17 November Workplace is hosting ‘A Dinner Date at BBC Television Centre’ - a formal black tie evening in aid of BBC Children in Need. This will be one of the most exclusive and unique Property and Real Estate networking events of 2011.
This is the third high profile event we have organised in as many years, as we tie-in with the buzz created at Television Centre on the eve of BBC Children in Need appeal night itself. It’s the highlight of our fundraising year, generating the bulk of our annual total and we hope it will help take us a long way towards our £175,000 target for this year's appeal.
With Television Centre now on the market, this may be the last year we can host such an event at this iconic venue, so it’s a rare opportunity to be part of the end of an era and soak up the glittering atmosphere.
As well as offering guests the chance to network with the best companies in the industry, the event will feature live music, entertainment, and a high-profile charity auction which will offer some stunning lots to take our total to new heights.
Raising six-figure sums of money each year as we do would not be possible without the generosity and support of our extended network of partners, suppliers and contacts. So a huge thank you to you all those companies who have committed to the event. It shows what we can achieve when we pull together and effectively use the links we have built up across this industry.
