Last night at ART ANTIQUES LONDON Party in the Park over £460,000 was raised for JDRF, who were the sole charity beneficiary.
The New York pop stars Scissor Sisters made an exclusive intimate appearance at the dinner event with an acoustic set from Jake Shears and Babydaddy (pictured left with Karen Addington, JDRF Chief Executive).
Auction prizes included a private performance by global music stars Florence + the Machine, a once in a lifetime, personalised week at The Masters 2013 for two people, and a sensational weeks stay for two people on the Serengeti National Park with a three night privately guided safari.
JDRF is indebted to the Scissor Sisters who took time out from an incredibly busy schedule to come and support JDRF’s search to find the cure for type 1 diabetes. We are also immensely grateful to all those people who supported the event and bid for the auction items on the evening.
This is a fabulous sum to raise which will support research to cure, treat and prevent type 1 diabetes. We truly feel honoured to have been chosen to be involved in this prestigious event.
