Exceptional Wallace Collection fundraiser for Chordoma UK
The directors of Chordoma UK are thrilled at the success of Jerry & Jane del Missier's hosted event at London's iconic gallery The Wallace Collection last Thursday evening. The select 120 strong guest list comprised some of the most influential people from the world of business and finance, several of whom flew in from places such as Dubai, New York and Geneva specifically for the evening event. Other guests included clinicians, researchers, fundraisers and supporters of Chordoma UK, including Professor Adrienne Flanagan and Professor Tariq Enver of UCL Cancer Institute.
Chordoma UK co-founder Gerald Fitz-Gibbon thanked Jerry & Jane del Missier for their generous support and welcomed all guests to the magnificent setting where a Champagne reception was held amongst the spectacular 18th century works of art, furniture and porcelaine before a sumptuous dinner in the main atrium under the stars of a clear London night. Midway through the evening guests were introduced to the world of chordoma through Chordoma UK's new short film produced and directed by CUK supporters Diggory and Sarah Kenrick followed by presentations and speeches by Prof Adrienne Flanagan, Susan Fitz-Gibbon and Jerry del Missier.
The result - pledges and donations to Chordoma UK exceeding £150,000 ($240,000) on the evening with further pledges of support to follow.
