We were invited to attend the Collars and Coats Ball in aid of Battersea Dogs and Cats home. The prestigious fundraising event took place on the 30th October at Battersea Evolution. The fundraiser was a star-studded event and we were honoured to attend.
Upon arrival we were greeted by Battersea Dogs and Cats Home’s Guard of Honour, where blue-coated Battersea dogs lined the route along the red carpet. After this exciting arrival we took our spot in the exclusive VIP area and took part in the fundraising auction for some truly remarkable items. We were then treated to performances from the fabulous Soul Singer, Heather Small, who some of you may know from the band M People, glamorous retro girl band the Tootsie Rollers and the amazing Strictly Come Dancing Band which featured Dave Arch and his Orchestra.
The evening lasted from 6:30pm until 2:00am and was a black tie event with a fancy as you like dress code for ladies. It was a fabulous evening and the fundraiser was a huge success. The evening got us thinking about the importance of attending such events! These events are extremely important to raise money and awareness for certain charities and they are a also great way to network with like-minded people. Networking is absolutely vital for entrepreneurs if their business is to survive because they must constantly learn new skills and develop to keep up with an ever-growing market.
We understand the importance of these events because they raise awareness for the brand or charity and that is exactly what we do for our clients. As well as raising awareness the charity hosts events and activities like this to create further excitement around raising funds for the charity. We were extremely honoured to attend the Collars & Coats Ball and hope that a huge amount of money was raised for the Battersea Dogs and Cats home.
