Annual Fundraising Dinner
CFG's biggest networking event is our annual fundraising dinner.
The dinner hosts over 500 guests and includes a drinks reception, raffle, after dinner speaker and three course meal.
Our corporate subscribers book to host tables at the dinner (in 2015, the rate was £2750 per table).
The dinner is a vital way for CFG to raise funds. The proceeds from the dinner enables us to fund and develop our core work of training, skills building and policy development.
The dinner gives our subscribers a valuable way to network with current and potential charity clients - many of whom will also be CFG members.
The Annual Fundraising Dinner 2016 will be returning to Lancaster London Hotel on 17th November. The 2016 dinner is kindly sponsored by Ecclesiastical Insurance and drinks reception by Price Bailey. For more information, email Sinéad Corcoran.
