The evening will include a spectacular charity auction on behalf of the child victims of the Syrian crisis, hosted by Lord Dalmeny, Deputy Chairman of Sotheby’s, as well as a champagne reception and Middle Eastern feast. The charity auction will be followed by performances of dance and music from the Levant and a late night after party at the exclusive central London members’ club, Whisky Mist. Tickets are £220 each, or £2000 for a table of ten.

The Jasmine Ball will mark two years since the beginning of the troubles in Syria. Since the outbreak of the conflict, over 60,000 people have been killed and over 700,000 Syrians have had to flee the country as refugees so far. This number is expected to reach one million by mid-2013. Estimates show that there are around two and a half million internally displaced people in Syria, half of whom are under 18.

UNICEF is urgently scaling up its emergency response to reach hundreds of thousands of children with child protection, water, sanitation and hygiene, health and nutrition, and education initiatives. But a lack of funds is inhibiting what can be achieved and UNICEF has appealed for £121m for its operations.
The Jasmine Ball promises to be a wonderful night of entertainment and glamour, raising both money and awareness of one of the most severe humanitarian crises of the last fifty years.

Prizes and Sponsors

Our auction prizes are varied and exciting, ranging from a signed AP2 of Tracey Emin’s ‘Mother and Child’ to a luxury beach holiday at EddéSands Hotel & Wellness Resort in Byblos, Lebanon, as well as the use of a box at the Royal Opera House in Covent Garden and a haute couture dress from Maison Rabih Kayrouz.

Other prizes include:

A painting by artist Suhair Sibai, donated by the director of the Lahd Gallery, Princess Nauf al-Bendar.

A luxurious Persian carpet from Essie

Royal box seats for four at The Mousetrap, with champagne and souvenir programmes

UNICEF’s work in Syria
The lives of millions of children in Syria and the surrounding countries are in danger following on going violence in the region. Children are at risk of abuse, exploitation and violence. Temperatures are due to plummet to zero degrees in the coming months raising new concerns for the welfare of families. Many fled in summer clothing and are living in simple tents with very little protection from the cold.

UNICEF has been on the ground since the crisis began. They are working with their partners to supply families with blankets and warm clothes. They are also running child friendly spaces where children can play and learn in safety, vaccinating millions of children against lifethreatening diseases and providing safe drinking water.

Lord's Pavilion

As the cricket season draws to a close, Marylebone Cricket Club (MCC) can report a surge in popularity for guests seeking a full day of luxury hospitality at Lord’s during a Test Match in 2016. In the Home of Cricket’s most iconic venues – the Captains’ Lounge and Marylebone Suite – hospitality packages which included a hearty breakfast, sumptuous four-course lunch and luxury afternoon tea, sold out quickly for the first three days of the England v Sri Lanka and England v Pakistan Investec Test Matches. Private Boxes with the best views of the action for up to 18 guests also sold out fast for the same days. MCC revealed a sharp increase in revenue for its 2016 Sri Lanka Test Match hospitality packages compared with 2014 when the team last played England at Lord’s. Revenues for hospitality were up by nearly 30% over the same period in 2014 whilst private box sale revenues were up by a healthy 60%. Nick Kenton, MCC Head of Sales, Meetings & Events and Hospitality, said: “2016 has been a fantastic year for enjoying a day of cricket whilst experiencing the very best food, drink and hospitality that Lord’s has to offer. “This year’s sales figures show that hospitality packages at Lord’s were in huge demand and continue to be a key part of the summer sporting calendar.” Lord’s also expects high demand for its new hospitality packages, to be released this autumn for 2017 matches. These include England v South Africa from 6th to 10th July and England v West Indies from 7th to 11th September. Packages for the England v Ireland Royal London One-Day International on 7th May 2017 are also expected to sell out in record time. Details of all hospitality options at Lord’s can be found on its website
