Chris Gayle Foundation Dinner Event Management

Our Brief

Our client, an international cricketing superstar, wanted to hold a fundraising dinner in central London to mark the launch of his new charity.

Rocket were given the responsibility of all event management which included designing marketing material, inviting guests & VIPs, sourcing an auctioneer and photographer, managing the co-ordination of items for the live and silent auction, entertainment, social media, goody bags, staffing and table gifts.

The Solution

Rocket were able to use their wealth of experience and contacts within the events industry to ensure all aspects were delivered to a premium level. Fundraising activities included a Live and Silent Auction, “Heads & Tails”, a raffle and ticket sales to the after party.

Entertainment included a mini “Life Stories” with Chris, hosted by Piers Morgan, interviews with rising cricketing stars, plus a roaming magician and an after party.

 

Results

400+ guests attended including international cricketing superstars

A significant amount of funds was raised on the night, providing the charity with a great kick start.
