Developing World Health takes New York by storm!
Changing the lives of 17,000 children in Sub Saharan Africa!
‘Scotland Unfiltered; New York’ was attended by over 150 people on the night with over $17,000 raised towards the Charity's Life Change Appeal through the live auction, which was hosted by Ross King. The charity’s ambassador, Hollywood actor Brian Cox was in attendance on the night wearing his Developing World Health Tweed custom designed by Howie Nicholsby of 21st Century Kilts.
Brian was also wearing a bespoke kilt pin, designed by Sarah Alexander of Laing the Jewellers Edinburgh. Sarah created three bespoke kilt pins incorporating the charities logo with a traditional Scottish design. One pin was gifted to Brian Cox, another to Ross King and the third was auctioned on the night raising over $2,500 for the charity.
The event was attended by the Scottish Parliamentary delegation and Scottish Government representatives and secured fantastic coverage on ITV's Daybreak and Lorraine Show propelling the Charity's profile through the event. The monies raised will help 17,000 children on the ground in Africa. Innis and Gunn and Macallan whiskey generously gave samplings out on the night of their different beer and vintage of whiskey making the evening even more special.
Due to the success of the event, we will be looking to evolve Scotland Unfiltered next year. If you weren’t able to attend the event but would like to help please click the DONATE button on the toolbar above, 50p can change a child’s life for a whole year.
