The Dinner

The evening starts at 6pm with a cocktail reception in the River Room overlooking the embankment Gardens and the Thames beyond.  At 7.15pm guests then move to the largest of The Savoy’s banqueting rooms, the Lancaster Room, where they are greeted by the Chairman and introduced to the charity of the year, why its work is important and how funds raised will be used to transform the charity. 

As part of the evening’s entertainment, and prior to the event, guests will have the opportunity to sponsor their own horse and jockey that will take part in the race shown during dinner. 

Sponsorship costs £500 for the horse and £250 for the jockey.  The race card included in the centre spread of the evening programme will include the horse name and number chosen by the owner, owner’s name and a one line comment. The jockey colours supplied are by Ladbrokes but sponsors of jockeys will see their names on the racing card. 

Once the £40 minimum bets are in, the horses are off.  At the end of the race the MC announces the winnings as calculated by the Ladbrokes backroom team during the race and the hostesses return to the tables to pay out the winners. There will also be a top prize for the owner of the winning horse.

All proceeds made from bets on the race are added to the overall funds raised on the night.

The Auction

Throughout the evening guests are able to bid on a multitude of generously donated auction items via state of the art technology.  The very best lots, however, are saved until after dinner where our marvellous auctioneer and committee member, Martin Pope, will host the live auction.
