Guests from more than 30 cross-sector companies made for an extra ‘wicked’ atmosphere at the summer show event.  Pre-show, Leading Ladies enjoyed a stunning 'make-up for business' demonstration from national award winning make-up artist Gemma Richmond. With personal brand and reputation increasingly a buzz word in corporate circles, Gemma created a business look for ‘ordinary’ model Donna Haggerty, a Purser with British Airways.

The performance of international hit musical Wicked received a standing ovation as did the sumptuous cake supplied by Caffe Chino to accompany the champagne. 
A selection of innovative and unusual prizes helped to raise nearly £1000 for Hippodrome Plus. We look forward to seeing the results of airbrush make-over winner, Helen Murray of Leonard Curtis!

Leading Ladies sponsors Rewired PR and FleetMilne Property joined 30 cross-sector guests to learn about the history of champagne, participate in a Nez du Vin quiz and be guided on the most important principles of tasting wine.  Leading Ladies were immediately put through their tasting paces during the pouring of brut, vintage and nocturne labels.
The prize draw proved as popular as ever with HSBC’s Victoria Emery generously sponsoring the Taittinger prize.  The evening raised over £600 for Hippodrome Plus.

Feedback from the event has been so successful that we are planning further tasting events.  Look out for an announcement shortly and book your places quickly as numbers will be strictly limited.
