Raffingers Foundation raise over £12,000 at their first charity ball in aid of Pancreatic Cancer Research Fund and Ovarian Cancer Action.
Over 100 people joined Raffingers Foundation at the Marriott Hotel in Waltham Abbey on Saturday 16 September 2017.
The event was hosted by Lee Manning, Partner at Raffingers and featured live entertainment from Frog on a Rocket, a silent auction and raffle.
Raffingers Foundation is run by volunteers, which means every single penny raised goes directly to the causes they support. These are:
- Research projects conducted by Pancreatic Cancer Research Fund and Ovarian Cancer Action.
- To financially help those directly affected by pancreatic and ovarian cancer. This money can be used for counselling, support and days away for the families. (For further details and applications for the fund, contact firstname.lastname@example.org.)
Launched in 2016, Raffingers Foundation has already raised nearly £20,000. The charity will be making their first donation to Pancreatic Cancer Research Fund and Ovarian Cancer Action in December of this year.
Raffingers, Chartered Certified Accountants in Essex and London, launched Raffingers Foundation after years of supporting local charities. Instead, due to personal losses within the firm, a decision was made to support charities closer to the firm’s heart. Raffingers Foundation was subsequently born and is now run by the team at Raffingers.
Lee Manning, Partner at Raffingers and Chairman of Raffingers Foundation said, “The Raffingers Foundation Charity Ball was a great success and we cannot believe how much we managed to raise. We would just like to thank everyone that came out to support us as well as all of those who donated a raffle or auction prize. This is a charity very close to our hearts and we really appreciate everyone who donated and contributed to making the night a success. We are now planning for next year!”
