On the 6th of December 2017, Mae Cassidy was invited to enjoy an evening of fine dining at the annual Great British Chef’s dinner, held at the Guildhall in London to raise money for the NSPCC. The evening brought together Michelin star chefs from across the UK to create a fabulous 5 course, 6 Michelin star meal for over 450 guests.
We proudly donated our beautiful Rekha Reflect handbag to the event, to be featured in the Live Silent Auction, amongst a number of special prizes donated by Alexander McQueen, Scott Dunn, Jumeirah, Harrods, Emirates and L’Atelier des Chefs. We are proud to reveal that our beautiful handbag raised an amazing £500 for the NSPCC!
In total the evening raised an amazing £208,000, with all proceeds going to the NSPCC for the continued provision of essential services to keep thousand of children safe from harm throughout the year through the 'Speak Out. Stay Safe' programme.
Creative Director of Mae Cassidy, Georgina Mae commented "We were honoured to contribute and be a part of such a special event. The commitment and work from the NSPCC that goes into raising money for such an important cause is incredible."
Georgina Mae offers us an insight insight into the evening:
Breathing in to squeeze myself into my black tie outfit for the evening; a Pre SS16 Alexander McQueen, Bougainvillea fil-coupe, jacquard and organza prom dress - paired with Steve Madden court shoes and one of our beautiful Mae Cassidy Port coloured, silk Zeenat Clutch Bag's.
We set off by car to Guildhall, with a beautiful evening view of London.
We arrived to join the Champagne Reception and proudly admire our beautiful bag on display before the auction.
Guests were seated down to begin the 5 course dinner and watch the live auction kick off!
