A Glamorous Fundraiser at ROX
A glamorous fundraiser at ROX Edinburgh has raised nearly £4,000 for our Maggie’s ‘Buy a Brick’ appeal.
High-flying businesswoman Kai Murray took over the upmarket ROX Edinburgh jewellery boutique for a fundraising event earlier this month, where more than 60 ladies enjoyed canapes, cocktails and beauty treatments to drum up funds for Maggie’s cancer charity. Kai and her friend Lisa have been fundraising for Maggie’s, using their background as top businesswomen to raise more than £700,000 through a non-stop whirlwind of high teas, glamorous balls and exercise challenges.
Evening News and Maggie’s have teamed together for the Buy a Brick appeal, which aims to build an extension for the centre at the Western General Hospital.
The £1.2m extension will include three new therapy rooms, which will allow an additional 5,000 visitors per year, and new garden space. More than £440,000 is already in the bag through corporate sponsorship and the Evening News appeal has generated nearly £39,000 since its launch in November.
On the night guests were invited to try out a number of beauty treatments from local businesses such as Austen Thomson Hairdressing, Zen Beauty, Caudalie and Makeup Applications by GlamCandy.
