Oxford Pink Tie Ball Raises Over £12,000!

09 Jun 2014

Opendoorz and Hedges Law hosted the first ever Oxford Pink Tie Charity Ball. It was an evening to be remembered with opera, burlesque and a rock band – there was something for everyone!

Over 170 local business professionals and their friends donned their pink bow ties and joined in the fun and frivolity at The Randolph Hotel. However they remained focused on the fact that they were there to raise funds for Breakthrough Breast Cancer.

The Auction created a feisty bidding war for a villa in Tuscany, VIP tickets for Goodwood and a tour for 10 of the BMW plant to name but a few of the wonderful prizes that had been so kindly donated. A staggering £12,500 was raised – Nicola Poole from Hedges Law was thrilled:

“We’re absolutely overwhelmed by the quality of the items donated for both the auction and raffle and with the generosity of our guests – a figure like this really will make a difference”.

Nicola is also ran the London Marathon this weekend – fortunately her feet have recovered from all the dancing!

  • It only took one meeting as a guest and I was hooked. Having tried many frankly awful networking groups, I was struck by both the people and the approach: professional with a great dynamic.
