SITE GB smashed its £10k fundraising target at its biggest ever Christmas lunch event, hosted at The Langham, London on 17 December.
The association’s flagship annual festive lunch attracted 200 event professionals – up from around 40 just three years ago – and raised a whopping £12,925 for industry charity Meeting Needs through a raffle and auction.
A number of suppliers that attended the event donated prizes, with prizes up for grabs including a three-night trip to Monaco with two nights at the Columbus Hotel, one night at the Fairmont Monte-Carlo and a helicopter transfer, plus a number of hotel stays, lunches and a prize from micebook, which was bid for and won by Sandals for £475 in the auction.
Guests were treated to a fabulous three-course lunch in The Langham’s stunning ballroom, with a smoked salmon starter to start and beef for the main course.
Elliott Grant, Top Banana director of incentives and 2020 SITE GB president, said “The SITE GB board were thrilled with the success of all our 2019 events, especially the Christmas lunch – our biggest and most successful to date – which rounded off a great year for the chapter. We are heading into 2020 with high hopes.
“We’re really happy to support Meeting Needs and continue to raise their profile alongside SITE GB and will look to further deepen the partnership this year. Our focus this year will be to continue to raise the profile of the chapter and our key events and grow membership.”
