Another successful gala!

Magic Bus held its annual gala dinner on Thursday 9th October at The Dorchester. 260 guests, including cricketer Monty Panesar, TV presenters Peter and Dan Snow and businessman Arun  Nayar, attended for an evening of delicious India food, fundraising and entertainment.

 

The event was a celebration of Magic Bus' 15th anniversary and focussed on Magic Bus' work with adolescent girls. Guests heard from the incredibly inspiring Parvati Pujari who joined the Magic Bus programme aged nine and now works for Magic Bus.

 

A live auction conducted by Ed Rising of Sotheby's featured lots including Wimbledon debenture tickets and a private plane ride to a French vineyard. With a silent auction featuring 42 lots as well, the evening raised £210,000 for Magic Bus to expand its programme. Check out some photos of the evening.

 

Thank you to all the sponsors, guests and auction prize donors for helping make the event such a success.
