London-based ethical emerald supplier, Myne London, has announced further details about its inaugural Myne London Foundation Charity Ball that will raise funds to empower lapidary communities in the northern regions of Pakistan.
The Myne London Foundation was created in September 2021 to support women in Pakistan by giving their daughters the funds they need for school fees, uniforms and transportation. These crucial measures of support can mean the difference between a girl being educated or left behind in a country where, despite huge progress in the last decade, 12 million girls aged 5-16 are still out of school (The Malala Fund).
To celebrate the launch of the Myne London Foundation, Co-Founders and sisters Fiona Wellington and Kate Murray Gordos will host an inaugural event at The Hurlingham Club, a private members’ club in Fulham, London, on Saturday, March 19, 2022, sponsored by Branding Science Group.
The evening will commence with a champagne reception in the venue’s glass domed Palm Court followed by a three-course dinner overlooking the terrace.
The night’s entertainment will be hosted by long-time Myne London supporter and TV presenter, Jenny Powell, and will include a charity raffle and auction with notable prizes donated by the business’ supporters across the fashion, jewellery and entertainment industries.
Auction items include piece of jewellery featuring Myne London emeralds by Octavia Elizabeth; a bespoke cut morganite gemstone from UK master cutter, Dr Steven Sweetman; dance lesson with Strictly Come Dancing professional, Kristina Rihanoff; Abu Dhabi Grand Prix VIP tickets, and a private dining experience at Heston Blumenthal’s restaurant, Dinner, to name but a few.
The evening will conclude with live music from Bristol-based artists, Holysseus Fly, James Vine and The Voice finalist, Hannah Williams.
