Celebrity Sports Dinner at the Hurlingham Club in support of Right to Play
In October 2009, at The Palm Court, Hurlingham Club in London, Eventica brought together key figures from the world of sports including a number of sporting celebrities. TV presenters, tennis stars and premiership footballers all turned up to help raise funds and awareness for the international charity Right to Play.
Right to Play, set up by Olympian Johann Koss, works in 23 of the world’s under-developed countries and with the support of Athlete Ambassadors, helps over 600,000 children who are victims of war, poverty and deprivation.
Paul Deighton, CEO of London 2012 Olympic Games Organising Committee addressed guests, and a charity auction led by ex-hockey international Roger Dakin included one-of-a-kind lots donated by Chelsea FC, The Lawn Tennis Association, Epsom Racecourse, and Team Columbia and helped raise funds during this glittering evening of sporting success.
