BiG Sports Dinner
The BiG Sports Dinner is an annual UK charity attended by major players from the global betting and gaming industry.
The BiG Foundation is a UK charity that helps people in challenging circumstances with the aid of funds donated by gambling and gaming operators. David Dixon and Richard Hogg founded BiG in 2013 and have been hosting special events to raise funds. One such event is the annual BiG Sports Dinner.
Sports Stars in Attendance
Attendees of the dinner are typically invited to a black tie event hosted in a lavish venue. Entertainment can come in various forms, be it illusionary or music-based. However, a key staple of the event is the appearance of famous sports stars. In addition, a special host will be chosen to speak at the event.
Another reason for hosting the event is to hand out special awards related to the gambling industry. These can change from year to year, but often focus on use of sporting stars in marketing campaigns. For example, think of how Shane Warne worked with 888Poker.
The dinner is central to BiG’s strategy of supporting injured, sick, or terminally ill people from all over the globe. Support is offered to help meet both physical and psychological needs. BiG also attempts to provide support to family members, friends, and carers of afflicted individuals.
