The White Rose Charity Ball is being held at the Park Plaza, Riverbank, London.
There will be A-list celebrities entertaining the guests throughout the evening and several attending and lending their support. Adam Garcia, Lee Mead and Stephen Merchant have also contributed prizes and may even attend!! The Ball will open with an elegant champagne reception and featuring some musical surprises. This will be followed by a five star menu designed by top celebrity chefs including: Fergus Henderson of St John, Rowley Leigh, founder of Le Café Anglais with Tom Parker-Bowles, food editor and critic and Tim Wilson, Head Chef of the Groucho Club.
Our guests will be hosted by Richard Bacon and entertained throughout by some very special music artists. Expect a few jaw-dropping moments.
We won’t be overdoing the fundraising element; we want our guests to enjoy the evening. However there will be some fantastic art up for auction, including items donated by celebrities and an exclusive sterling silver and 24-carat gold egg, designed by Sarah Fabergé.
It’s important that we reflect on the purpose of the evening. We will look at the experiences of Holocaust survivors who share their stories with young people at The Holocaust Centre and on the courage of all those who – like the White Rose protest movement in Nazi Germany – demonstrate active humanity in the face of prejudice and hatred. To do this we will be sharing some short films produced especially for the White Rose Ball.
