All of the celebrities involved in the event designed a necklace inspired by their nominated charty.

Caregos Couture then made the necklace on their behalf and ticket holders, who came along to the event, had the chance of winning one of the celebrity designed pieces.

There were also be other prizes available by celebrated Welsh craftspeople.

The event was fully catered, with catering supplied by, 'The Dinner Set' and desert by 'Chic On Line' (subject to availability).

Jemima Phillips (appointed royal harpist 2004 and who played at the wedding of Prince Charles and the Dutchess of Cornwall) was kind enough to confirm that she would perform a harp recital during the evening, her playing was absolutely divine.

Tickets were priced at £5-£10 each (ticket prices were set  by the charities) and were available from all the nominated charities involved in the event. 
Tickets were numbered and of limited availablility and the evening was an absolute sell-out with more than 200 people attending the evening!
