Show us your sparkle at NAT's annual 'Spring Awakening' fundraiser

Friday, March 11, 2011

NAT is delighted to announce their annual fundraising event ‘Spring Awakening’ will take place on 11 May 2011 at The Sackler Hall, Museum of London. 

The theme of this year’s glittering event is ‘spring sparkles’ and the evening is generously supported by the prestigious Champagne Academy, who will be providing guests with the opportunity to taste champagne from the 16 Grand Marque Champagne Houses. 
Sackler Hall, which opened in May last year, is an exciting and contemporary space which sits alongside the unique and decadent Victorian Pleasure Gardens and the City Gallery, home to the iconic Lord Mayors State Coach. Before the event, guests will also have exclusive access to the Museum’s newest exhibition, Modern London. 
As well as champagne and canapés, the fabulous fundraiser will also host a big-prize mini auction, tombola, silent art auction and raffle – giving all guests the chance to win fabulous prizes whilst donating to help fund NAT’s vital policy work.
Tickets to ‘Spring Awakening’ are £75 each and can be purchased by visiting 
Deborah Jack, Chief Executive of NAT (National AIDS Trust), comments:  
‘NAT is incredibly excited about this year’s ‘Spring Awakening’ and we’re hoping it will be our best year yet. We are thrilled to have the Champagne Academy on board and guests will be in for a glamorous evening with lots of entertainment. 
‘NAT relies on donations to continue our work and ‘Spring Awakening’ is our flagship event of the year. All the money raised will help fund NAT’s policy work for people living with HIV – changing attitudes, challenging injustice and changing lives.’
