The BiG Foundation has announced a number of exciting sponsorships and attendees for its second Sports Dinner event. Microgaming’s BiG Sports Dinner will again take place at The Dorchester Hotel in London’s Mayfair, on Thursday 17th September 2015.
Microgaming’s BiG Sports Dinner, the only sports dinner in the Betting and Gambling industry, raising funds solely for Charity, has announced that Pentasia has agreed to become recruitment partner for the evening. In addition, Sober Up is to provide a potentially much needed hangover remedy for all guests, in the goody bags provided by Mayfair Row.
Microgaming is kindly funding an after-party at The Baroque Bar in London’s Playboy Club which will start at midnight and includes a welcome drink aswell as a DJ to get the party started! Playboy will feature during the main event too; guests will have the opportunity to play on their Casino tables’ aswell as mingle with their renowned and glamourous bunny girls.
Richard Hogg, Founding Director of BiG, commented: “The take-up and interest for this event has exceeded our expectations. The feedback last year was that this was ‘the best industry event’ of its type, which has made it difficult to try and emulate again this year, but hopefully we are on the right road. We have had continued support from many of last year’s attendees including Paddy Power, MyClubBetting, Ali-Quantum Gaming, and Gamcrowd as well as some new ones which include, Mayfair Row, Storm International, EveryMatrix, and the Playboy Casino.”
The event is to be hosted by Austin Healey and Chris Kamara. Other sporting guests include, John Gorman, Harry Redknapp, Big Sam Allardyce, Jamie Spencer, and Marco Tardelli, as well as Statto himself, Angus Loughran. In addition Mark Bright, David Howells, Andy Gray and John Salako will be in attendance. Guests will have the chance to have their photograph taken with these sporting legends in front of a Microgaming PlayItForward backdrop, which is the company’s CSR initiative.
The charities supported by the London event include Restart Rugby, Meningitis Now, The Lord’s Taverners, The Injured Jockeys Fund, Bobby Moore Fund for Cancer Research UK and The Kinetic Foundation.
