TONI&GUY Summer Soiree Fundraiser Triumphs for King’s College Hospital

The TONI&GUY Charitable Foundation is delighted to announce the resounding success of their Summer Soiree, a fundraising event aimed at supporting the TONI&GUY ward at King’s College Hospital. Held on 8th June 2024 at the Mascolo family’s estate, the evening featured immersive experiences designed to aid critically ill children, their families, and NHS staff.

Since its inception in 2003 by Toni Mascolo OBE and his wife Pauline, the Foundation has been committed to various charitable causes. The Summer Soiree showcased their enduring dedication to this mission.

Lilia Mascolo, Director and Trustee, expressed her happiness with the event: “We are thrilled with the incredible reception of our innovative summer soirée, a groundbreaking concept in immersive fundraising. The feedback has been overwhelmingly positive, and we are deeply grateful for the generous support of our sponsors, who made this event possible. It was an honour to have the renowned Nobu Hotel London Portman Square serve their culinary masterpieces, adding a touch of elegance to the evening. We extend a special thanks to Steven Webster for donating a diamond for our exclusive raffle. The funds raised will make a significant impact on the TONI&GUY Ward at King’s College Hospital, and we are humbled by the community’s support for this worthy cause.”

The event, hosted by Pierre and Lilia Mascolo, featured 250 guests, including notable figures like Prince Jerome Luc Muniglia de’Giustiani and Karen Millen OBE. Andrea McLean hosted the raffle and auction, and Lettice Rowbotham performed on the violin.

Guests enjoyed canapés from Nobu Catering, with the Italian Chefs Association providing additional catering. Think Wine was the exclusive wine supplier, while Labo and Solaro Capri provided spirits and cocktails.

This event marked the first introduction of immersive fundraising experiences by the Foundation, offering guests interactive installations and unique activities to raise awareness and funds for the TONI&GUY ward. This new approach aimed to forge a meaningful connection with the Foundation’s mission.

Support from luxury brands and partners was vital in bringing the immersive experiences to life, contributing significantly to the Foundation’s efforts to support young patients at King’s College Hospital.

Proceeds from the Summer Soiree will benefit the TONI&GUY ward, ensuring the hospital continues to provide exceptional care for young patients. The Foundation’s ongoing support is crucial in maintaining high standards of treatment and facilities.

The TONI&GUY Charitable Foundation extends heartfelt thanks to all supporters, donors, and partners for their unwavering dedication. Pierre Mascolo, Chairman and son of Toni Mascolo, OBE, remarked, “Together, we can continue and carry on my mother and father’s legacy, creating a brighter future for seriously ill children and their families.”
