The BiG Sports Dinner Returns to LondonPublished August 3, 2015 by Vlad G
With a successful event now in its portfolio, the BiG Sports Dinner charitable event will be coming back this September at the same location in London to raise more funds.
After the inaugural BiG Sports Dinner took place in September last year, the foundation has now announced that the event is coming back this September in order to raise more funds for charity. And again, the BiG Sports Dinner sponsored by Microgaming will again be held at the luxurious The Dorchester hotel, located in London, with the date being set for September 17, 2015.
Significant funds were raised last year as almost 250 attendees took part in the event and enjoyed the many entertaining features, which included an awards show, an illusionist and a raffle.
A bigger charitable event
The goal this year is for the dinner to be even bigger than it was in 2014 and this will be done with the help of various celebrities, both from the sports world and beyond it. Microgaming has announced that it will once again be the headline sponsor by supporting the PlayItForward campaign.
Austin Healey will be the MC again and he will be joined by other big names, including Harry Redknapp, Chris Kamara from Sky TV, Jamie Spencer and many more. It remains to be seen if an illusionist will be performing magic among the attendees again or if another form of entertainment will be chosen.
MiGS in Malta
The announcement also included an additional event as the Microgaming’s BiG Sports Dinner will move beyond London and have its inaugural event at MiGS on November 17, in Malta. John Barnes will be present at both events as he has committed to the cause.
Microgaming and The BiG Foundation are on track for another successful year with the events and the raised money will be going to supported charities, which include Restart Rugby, The Injured Jockeys Fund, Meningitis Now, The Kinetic Foundation, The Lord’s Taverners and Bobby Moore Fund for the London dinner.
More than £12,000 was collected in donations last year.
