125th Anniversary Ball & Auction Launches Special Year of Activities
Posted on 19 March 2016 by Miss Amy Hinds, Communications Officer
Saturday 23 January brought the much anticipated launch of Queen’s Gate 125th Anniversary Year with a stunning Ball at the Landmark Hotel in Marylebone.
Nearly 300 guests were treated to a glamourous evening, which included a three course meal, a Live and Silent Auction and Dancing in the Ballroom at the five star hotel. The Live Auction, with Lots generously donated by many friends of the School, and overseen by Sotheby’s auctioneer and former QG parent, Philip Hook, included a holiday to Sardinia’s Forte Village, an Internship at Stephen Webster, and a day for two at the magnificent Van Cleef and Arpels jewellery Maison in Paris. The Live Auction raised over £30,000, with the evening raising over £60,000 in total for the School’s Bursary Fund, which is helping more and more girls benefit from an education at Queen’s Gate.
A huge congratulations to the Ball Committee, chaired by Queen’s Gate Senior School parent, Mrs Nada Wynn, for this night to remember.
