The evening’s auction, hosted by renowned charity auctioneer Charlie Ross, together with a film detailing the challenges faced by the charity’s special guests, helped to raise over £1.6 million for the charity, founded by the entrepreneur and philanthropist, John Caudwell. As annual supporters, Sunseeker are thrilled to report on the success of yet again an amazing night.
Lots on offer in the exclusive auction included a signed original artwork piece by Bradley Theodore, a seven night stay on Sir Richard Branson’s Necker Island and a week stay on Superyacht ‘TITANIA’.
With the Caudwell Children Committee headed up by Sunseeker London’s Alexis Lewis, clients from Sunseeker London attended the gala in support of this incredibly worthy cause. Sarah Ferguson (Duchess of York), Chris Eubank, Lizzie Cundy and Liam Payne were also among the guests at this glitzy event.
The Caudwell Children Butterfly Ball is renowned for its celebrity guest list and word class entertainment, which this year included performances from the SYMPHONIACS, an amazing ensemble of violinists, cellists and pianists that travel from all around the world to perform, Leona Lewis, the British singing sensation who has sold over 20 million records worldwide and Chaka Khan, the ten-time GRAMMY Award winning singer and songwriter.
Caudwell Children CEO Trudi Beswick, said: “We are delighted at the overwhelming support we received from all of our guests on the night. This money is more important than ever as the demand for our support increases. This will enable us to touch the lives of thousands of children. I can’t thank everyone who donated tonight enough.”
