Caudwell Children has confirmed plans to expand its fundraising efforts with an exclusive event on the Algarve this summer.
The charity raises hundreds of thousands every year at its star-studded Butterfly Ball in London to support disabled children. Now Caudwell Children has announced that it will launch a plush event hosted by Peter Andre at the Casa do Lago on the Algarve on Saturday 21 August.
Table and event sponsorship packages are now on sale for the inaugural Butterflies on the Lake event which will take place on the venue’s stunning lakeside terrace, offering exclusive guests an evening of great food, fine wine and fantastic entertainment.
Dozens of high-profile guests are expected to descend on the Algarve for the event – with many of Caudwell Children’s previous events attracting star names that include local residents Duncan Bannatyne and wife Nigora Whitehorn, and Carolyn and John Radford.
High-profile sponsors are also expected to support the ball, with Wealth Management firm Chase Buchanan already confirmed.
Kerrie Davies, Director of Events at Caudwell Children, said:
“Our fundraising galas in London and Monaco have helped to make a huge difference to the lives of thousands of disabled children and their families.
“The money and awareness raised at these events is helping to change perceptions, break down barriers and make society more inclusive – all in a gorgeous and exclusive setting – so we expect tickets to sell fast.
“We’re so pleased to be able to bring the event to the Algarve this year and we’re delighted that the team at the Casa do Logo have agreed to host what promises to be a star-studded evening.”
Chad Teixeira, Founder of Inspire to Inspire Network – the agency helping to deliver the event at Casa do Lago – said:
“It is an honour for me to support the phenomenal work of Caudwell Children and for Inspire to Inspire Network to be appointed as the chosen partners in Portugal to create this event.
“I am looking forward to producing Butterflies on the Lake which is attracting many high-profile celebrities and attendees ready for a great evening of fundraising.
“My team and I are grateful for the opportunity for Inspire to Inspire Network to be working with Quinta do Lago to create a memorable evening which will provide some much deserved exposure to the beautiful surrounding area and have a positive impact on local businesses.
“Supporting Caudwell Children is close to my heart and I am delighted that, after many months where we have been unable to host any events, Butterflies on the Lake will draw our community closer together in support of those less fortunate than ourselves.”
The evening begins with a VIP drinks reception followed by a four-course dinner, a charity auction to raise money for Caudwell Children and an evening of entertainment.
Host Peter Andre is a long-standing Caudwell Children ambassador and has helped the charity raise millions of pounds to support disabled children and their families.
Since its inception in 2000, Caudwell Children has provided services worth over £85million to over 58,000 children with 652 different medical conditions.
The charity was founded by philanthropist, John Caudwell who covers the charity’s administrative costs – offering transparency and peace of mind that 100% of donations are
used to change children’s lives.
