The BiG Foundation is delighted to announce Microgaming as headline sponsor for the forthcoming BiG Sports Dinner on a re-arranged date on Wednesday 10th September 2014, at The Dorchester Hotel in London.
“We are delighted to have Microgaming show such an interest in this inaugural event. The founders believe there is a real need for an organisation such as ours within our industry and thus have spent a lot of time, effort as well as the wife’s new kitchen in getting the project thus far. It is critical now for the industry to embrace the event and show their support with their attendance.” Commented Richard Hogg, co-Director and Founder.
The BiG Sports Dinner will be ‘The’ only Charity Sports Dinner in the Betting and Gaming Industry. Attended by a host of sports stars, it also features two key industry awards, the first; “The Best Sports Betting Campaign” and the second; “The Best Use of a Sporting Star in a Betting Campaign”. It will be a fantastic night of sports stories, banter and brilliant entertainment hosted by Austin Healey, whilst raising money for some amazing sports related charities.
Roger Raatgever, CEO of Microgaming, added: “The BiG Sports Dinner is a unique event within the gaming industry and we are privileged to be a part of it. As a company we are very passionate about sport and charity work, so the BiG Sports Dinner is a natural fit for us. We hope that the event will raise a substantial amount for GamCare and other worthy charities.”
