Last Friday, HARIBO sponsored Martin House's biggest fundraising event of the year, the Glitter Ball, which raised an astounding £160,000!
Their annual black-tie event included a champagne reception, three course dinner, games, entertainment and live music. To support their online auction, HARIBO donated a 'year’s supply of sweets' to one lucky winner.
Representing HARIBO on the night were Jon Hughes, Gareth Igo, and Tabea Powell, all of whom had a fantastic evening networking and supporting our charity partner.
Jon Hughes, Managing Director, said: “It was an honour to support last week's Martin House Glitter Ball – their biggest fundraising event of the year. Throughout the evening there was such a positive atmosphere, and the turnout was fantastic.
“We feel privileged to be a long-standing partner of Martin House and feel proud that we have been able to support them to raise over £160k on the night.
“The funds will help Martin House to continue their amazing and important work: to create moments of happiness and lasting memories for those that need it the most."
