With The Animal Ball less than a week away, excitement is brewing in the Dovetail office. Our countdown is in full swing for the event set to take place on Tuesday 22nd November 2016 at Victoria House in London.
Bespoke wildlife tour operator Natural World Safaris has partnered with Elephant Family for what is set to be Europe’s biggest conservation fundraiser. This inspirational event has been designed to place emphasis on the conservation of the world’s elephants, blue whales, lions and gorillas.
As fundraising champions for the ball, the expert team at Natural World Safaris has created a unique selection of prizes for the evening’s silent auction, offering extraordinary wildlife experiences around the world. These include the ‘Questfor the Snow Leopard’, the ultimate safari for enthusiasts wishing to trackthese beautiful big cats, and the ‘Rainforests & Orangutans’ adventure exploring Borneo’s jungles.
Supported by TRH The Prince of Wales and The Duchess of Cornwall, The Animal Ball sees fifty leading fashion houses and restaurants joining forces to help understand and resolve human-animal conflict and to secure a future for our threatened wildlife. Inspired by Truman Capote’s Black & White Ball, the decadent occasion begins with top restaurants hosting 40 private dinners simultaneously across London, before guests head to the ball to celebrate.
Guests will make their entrance inspectacular masks and headgear intricately created by leading brands including Burberry, Matthew Williamson, Swarovski and Julien Riad Sahyoun, alongside other global designers. The astounding vision of these creations will be accompanied by the carnival of animals, marvelling guests by engaging with a full orchestra fused with musical acts.
The Animal Ball aims to raise over £2 million to donate to five causes; The Elephant Family, The Aspinall Foundation, Space for Giants, Lion Guardians and Save the Rhino.
Dovetail and Natural World Safaris look forward toseeing you there!
