The Arora Group announced today it raised over £1.25 million at its fifth Arora Ball held at the InterContinental London – The O2 on Saturday, 26 November 2022 bringing the total amount raised by the Arora Group for charitable causes to over £4.25 million since 2012. This year’s Arora Ball was proud to be supporting three incredible charities: the British Heart Foundation, Diabetes UK and Thames Hospice.
The evening’s theme was ‘heart of gold’ representing hope, love and light and symbolizing the kind and generous nature of all donors, sponsors, charities, and guests. As well as monies raised from table sales and general pledges, guests participated in a silent auction and international auctioneer Charles Hanson hosted a live auction which included an array of unique lots including flights and 5 nights’ accommodation in Los Angeles with tickets to the Grammy Awards and a bespoke Platinum Jubilee art piece of Queen Elizabeth II made from over 100,000 Swarovski crystals.
The occasion was hosted by comedian Rory Bremner and actor Laila Rouass, with the night’s entertainment provided by the talented band Excellence by So Far and DJs The Mac Twins. Lead Sponsor for the event was OakNorth Bank.
Sunita Arora and Dr Raj Arora, organisers of The Arora Ball, commented: “It’s an absolute pleasure to play a part in organising an event which will help make a difference to millions of people’s lives and bring hope and comfort to families who need it. We are proud that the money raised will support the three worthy causes. We are grateful to all our friends and supporters for their generosity and for making the Arora Ball a great success.”
